He is also writing the story of this movie, with Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich.
After releasing of Toy Story 3, he had already confirmed that the team of Toy Story franchise would not develop the next part until we would get the perfect story for this part. And now they have found it.
He also told about Toy Story 4 story in an interview, where he said that, “Toy Story 3 (2010) ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another Toy Story movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee, and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie – and I wanted to direct it myself.”
This is the first movie of John Lasseter in which he is handling the works of director, producer and co-writer.
