Number 4 in, (a) number 2 out?

Time for a double new header from Pixar …

The first one concerns a potential fourth full length feature in the Toy Story franchise. While the stars of the series recently returned in a short going on vacation in Hawaii (screened before CARS 2) no word had been out so far concerning whether another full length feature is considered. However, San Diego Entertainer reports that Tom Hanks during a recent interview with the BBC was asked whether there might be a fourth movie and replied: “I think there will be, yeah, I think they’re working on it now”. Sounds great? Well, just don’t forget: this is nothing like an official confirmation “working on it now” might also mean that Pixar is in a blue sky phase throwing around potential story ideas. There is no reason to believe that a movie is ready to go into actual production anytime soon…

The second news was reported by The Hollywood Reporter – and concerns the exit of Brad Lewis from Pixar. The 10-year veteran of Pixar who produced Ratatouille and co-directed Pixar’s current movie “CARS 2″ is leaving Emeryville to head to Florida where he is said to join Digital Domain’s newly founded Tradition Studios who are supposed to create CG features as well. The field of CG movie studios is getting more crowded by the day…

Both news today were brought to our attention through the great TAG blog of the Animation Guild 839.
