In a noteworthy move, Walt Disney Studios and Pixar announced that Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4 will swap release dates. Incredibles 2 is now slated to release on June 15, 2018, while Toy Story 4 is scheduled to release on June 21, 2019.
This is great news, I was shocked when Pixar announced the release windows for their upcoming films sometime last year. For some reason, we were going to get a fourth Toy Story film before we even got a second Incredibles film! I think that pushing the Incredibles sequel to 2019 would’ve been a devastating move, especially considering that a 2019 release year would amount to a 15 year window between the original and sequel.
As for Toy Story 4 ? I don’t think it is necessary, the third film ended the “story” on a perfect note. Continuing the story just feels like a money grab move by Pixar, but I’ll wait to see what they can do with the idea.
