Video: John Lasseter Dodges ‘Toy Story 4’ Question

While in London to promote Cars 2, director John Lasseter visited the BBC for a brief interview. After answering a question about what it really means to direct an animated film, Lasseter appears to have been blindsided by a question on the state of Toy Story 4 following a few speculative statements made by star Tom Hanks on BBC Breakfast a few weeks ago (Hanks later on to repeat his statements elsewhere).

Roughly transcribed, the interview went something like this:

BBC: Quick question. Tom Hanks was on the ‘Breakfast’ sofa, or was interviewed on ‘Breakfast’ recently, talking about Toy Story 4.

Hold Your Bullseyes! ‘Toy Story 4’ *May* Be in Development, According to Hanks

Is Pixar Animation Studios’ mystery film of 2013 yet another in a growing line of sequels for Disney/Pixar? While in the UK to promote Larry Crowne, actor Tom Hanks was asked during an interview for ‘BBC Breakfast’ whether there will be a Toy Story 4, to which the star first appeared to be speculating, stating ‘I think there will be, yeah,’ quickly adding ‘I think they’re working on it now.’

Unfortunately this is going against the conventional wisdom of most of the media reporting on the matter, somehow substituting the phrase ‘I think’ with ‘I am absolutely, positively certain.’
