You may think Toy Story 3 marks the end of the story of Andy and his toy pals. But Hollywood history proves that producers can't leave sleeping franchises alone for long. Is college the last stop for Andy in terms of his relationship with Woody, Buzz, Rex, Jessie, and the other shelf-dwellers? Here are some toy-centric ideas to keep the story going.
Toy Story 4: "A-Wii We Go!"
Andy's new college roommate brings along a Nintendo Wii game system, which quickly consumes both of their time, putting their grade point averages in jeopardy. The toys have to enter the video game space, dueling with Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Jillian Michaels (you know how quickly those "Freshman 15" pounds add up!) to put Andy back on the right track.
Toy Story 5: "Atari Seems to Be the Hardest Word"
As a college senior, Andy falls for a pretty young gamer who's obsessed with old-school video games. Soon, all Andy wants to do is play with her Atari 2600. With the help of forgotten video game characters including Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Q*Bert, Donkey Kong and the Defender, the toys hope to avoid asteroids and bring Andy back from the brink of retro-geekdom.
Toy Story 6: "Pandora's Shocks"
Andy graduates and moves into his first apartment, using the toys as packing material. But when he gets a job as a production assistant on AVATAR 2.0, Andy slips into the virtual world of Pandora, and the toys must inhabit blue avatar versions of themselves to save him. Features the birth of the blue Potato Head.
Toy Story 7: "Goodwill Hunting"
Andy finally drops the toys off at a Goodwill Center, where they meet not just other toys, but hand-me-away t-shirts, coats, costumes, and cheap costume jewelry. Is it time for the toys themselves to grow up? Luckily, they are saved by an 80-year-old collector (voiced by Justin Bieber) who cares for them just as lovingly as Andy did as a child. The only problem -- he also collects cats.
Should there be more Toy Story sequels? Chime in below!
