第4作まで作られた映画:「トイ・ストーリー4」を観て思ったこと(ネタバレなし) Movie Series with 4 Installments: What I Thought through Watching the Movie “Toy Story 4”


 I wonder what movie series with 4 installments there are, which were not conceived to be serialized from the beginning. I checked out some movies that come to my mind. (The figures in brackets are the years of release from 1 to 4)  

 エイリアン Alien


 インディ・ジョーンズ Indiana Jones


 ダイ・ハード Die Hard


 トイ・ストーリー Toy Story



 The time span between the first one and the fourth of each series above are, 18 years, 27 years, 18 years, and 24 years, so Indiana Jones is the longest. It seems like the 5th installment of Indiana Jones will be released in 2021, and it will make the time span between the 1st and the 5th 40 years long.


 The span of 24 years of Toy Story is also quite long. There could be the case that someone, who watched the first volume when he or she was a child, would watch the 4th with their children. Toy Story has a great possibility to be further serialized because it is a CG film with a toy as the main character.


 Making sequels to the films that weren’t originally conceived to be serialized means to add extra stories to the ones fully completed. In that case, what is required there is the necessity to do that. Plus the new one should be at least as enjoyable as the original movie, or more. In my opinion, most of the movies above are enjoyable till the 2nd or the 3rd installments, but the 4th seems not. Given that what I just mentioned is right, I realize how“Mission: Impossible”, which has 6 installments, is great.  



 I watched “Toy Story 4” on DVD. CG technology has advanced incredibly and the images are so beautiful. It also made me cry, even before the theme song was played. At some other parts I also sometimes cried. It is not that this film is trash at all. Even so, I couldn’t see the necessity of making it.
