Yes, the latest instalment in the Toy Story franchise will hit cinemas on 21 June 2019.

That should give you plenty of time to prepare for it at least, and enough time for them to hopefully not mess it up.

So, where does that leave us? Well, Andy has gone to college and Woody, Buzz, and the rest now live with Andy's neighbour Bonnie - but apparently the Toy Story saga has more legs in it yet.

It's been nine years since Toy Story 3 and - if we're being honest - it seemed to have wrapped up quite nicely at the end of that.

There was one thing missing though, and apparently this film will focus heavily on it - the romance between Woody and Bo Peep. Sure, OK.

The film has been in the pipeline for a few years, and there will be some familiar faces involved.For example, John Lasseter, who directed the first two films, is on board to direct the latest instalment as well.

There is more good news - Randy Newman will return to soundtrack the latest instalment.

That's basically all we know, really.

The release date was announced via a Facebook post on the official Toy Story page that showed a post-it note arrangement of a number 4.

It read: "Reach for the post-it! Toy Story 4 comes to theatres on June 21, 2019."

Surprisingly, the film's announcement hasn't gone down all that well online. It turns out a lot of people think that the films should have wrapped up after the heart-warming ending of Toy Story 3.

One person commented on the post saying: "But... Why? Toy Story is my favorite Pixar film. Don't screw up by trying to squeeze every penny from this. Just leave it alone."

Another said: "No one asked for this. Toy Story 3 ended perfectly and now they're just going to undo that perfect ending with a continuation of the story.

"As much as I love Toy Story, I wish they'd leave well enough alone. I'm all for keeping the story of the characters going in short films or TV specials like they've done already, but no need for another movie."

However, not everyone is so pessimistic, one person said: "I cannot believe the negativity on here about this film.

"Sure, Pixar could do a Cars and put out a sub-par sequel and wait for the merchandise cash to roll in. But this isn't Cars. This is Toy Story.

"Pixar will be more than aware what's at stake by not bringing anything less than their A-game to this. And given the three movies and numerous specials since, when have they disappointed with Buzz, Woody & Co.?"

Either way, we'll surely learn more about the upcoming film as things get underway. Let's just hope they don't screw it up.
