Toy Story 4 Trailer
I wrote about this a long time ago, but I didn't have "Toy Story 4"
Simply put, I thought it was a horrible idea and Pixar was going to burn down a reputation with this franchise that isn't easy to come by. Think about all the trilogies in the history of movies. Now, think of how many of those trilogies were perfect. I don't mean one good movie out of three. I don't mean two great movies out of three. I mean, how many trilogies are there in Hollywood that featured three great movies? Not good movies, great movies? There aren't many. There really aren't. In fact, most trilogies fall apart in the final act. The "Toy Story" movies are perfect all the way through. Each film is perfect.
So why Pixar wanted to squash that good work for a fourth film is beyond me. Shouldn't they just leave perfect alone? Can Pixar go 4-for-4 on the franchise that gave them their footing? Time will tell.
These days, I do have some hope though. Tom Hanks has talked about how impressed he was from "Toy Story 4" and how profound it is. Tim Allen has agreed with Hanks' sentiments. Of course, they are supposed to say these things, so maybe this is all marketing. But something gives me hope, hearing Hanks talk about things. I have hope, can they push out a perfect fourth film?
I can't wait to find out.
