Toy Story has already spawned two sequels and another sequel is on its way.
Toy Story 2 was initially going to be a direct-to-video release but after the return of the cast from the first movie and the story prove to be better than just a direct-to-video release, the movie was given a theatrical release. The sequel focuses on Woody being stolen at a yard sale and the rest of the toys going to rescue him.
Toy Story 3 is about the toys accidentally being donated to a daycare center while their owner, Andy is getting ready to go to college. The film received lots of critical acclaim, has earned a 99% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It was also the first animated film to gross over $1 billion worldwide and was the highest-grossing animated film until Disney’s Frozen, released in 2013.
Disney has become so heavily invested in the Toy Story franchise that in 2008, a theme park attraction called Toy Story Midway Mania was opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World and Tokyo Disney. The attraction is an interactive 4D ride.
Disney is also developing a theme land called Toy Story Land. It will be part of an expansion to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World.
A fourth movie in the series will simply be called Toy Story 4 and will focus on the romance between Woody and Bo Peep. It is scheduled to be released in June 2019.
