Disney and Pixar Announce Official Release Date for Toy Story 4

Toy Story fans have been waiting for a release date for Toy Story 4 since John Lasseter announced that the fourth installment of the franchise was announced at the D23 Expo last July.  Well….now we have an official release date for the movie.

On Friday it was announced on the film’s Facebook page that Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang are coming back to a theater near you on June 21, 2019.

Josh Cooley is now directing the film after John Lasseter stepped down from the project and Stephany Folsom has been tapped to write the next instalment of the franchise.

It’s unlikely that we’ll learn anything about the movie beyond the rumors until next year. Currently the rumors are suggesting that the movie is going to be about Woody and Bo Peep’s relationship and will not be a direct sequel to Toy Story 3. At least that’s what the rumors are saying.

The voice cast includes Tom Hanks, Laurie Metcalf, Annie Potts, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Kristen Schaal, Bonnie Hunt and among others.

On the surface June 2019 seems like a long time from now, but it’s going to be here sooner than we all think.  I for one cannot wait.  This is exciting news.

Fastpass Returns for Disneyland’s Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters

Astro Blasters

According to a post from the “Disneyland Today” Twitter account Disneyland has brought back Fastpass for Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters.  Fast passes are being distributed at the same location next to the ride where you can get Fastpasses for Star Tours. The Fastpasses for Buzz Lightyear are now “off the grid,” meaning that you can pick up Fastpasses for Star Tours, or any other Fastpass location, without having to wait two hours or until the start of your current Fastpass return time, whichever comes first.
