  • A different version of Toy Story 4 was released in 2019.
  • The romantic comedy version of Toy Story 4 was permanently cancelled.

  • Its release years went through several delays when it was announced in 2014. It was at first scheduled for 2017 (the year when Cars 3 was released) then moved to 2018 (the year when The Incredibles 2 was released) and finally moved to 2019, the year it got theatrically released.
