Pixar had intended for the film to be released in summer 2018 but the sequel to The Incredibles took the spot and Toy Story moved to 2019.

The fourth installment of the franchise comes more than two decades after the original Toy Story, which was released in 1995.

Visitors to Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios will feel as though they are setting foot in Andy's garden. Oversized versions of Woody, Buzz, Jessie and Slinky Dog will welcome fans of the film franchise. There will also be giant building blocks, game board pieces and more in the 11-acre expansion.

Toy Story Land will include two all-new attractions and one expanded favorite.

The main attraction is Slinky Dog Dash, a family rollercoaster inspired by the pooch spinoff of Slinky, the 1950s classic toy.

Riders will zip around and above Toy Story Land, serving up panoramic views of the land. Andy’s colourful creation will stretch Slinky Dog and his coils to the max - from his head to his upturned tail.
