Tim Allen Offers Update on Pixar’s Toy Story 5

For a long time, Toy Story 3 was regarded as a remarkable conclusion to the beloved Toy Story franchise, leaving fans puzzled when Disney and Pixar announced the development of Toy Story 4. Despite the film’s financial success, many fans felt it didn’t live up to the franchise’s high standards.

So, the news of a Toy Story 5 being in the works, particularly after last year’s release of Lightyear, continued to perplex audiences. Tim Allen, the star of the series, disclosed that the script had been in progress for a while, but Disney refrained from revealing any details until the cast and crew were satisfied with its quality.

“Toy Story 5 had actually been in the pipeline for quite some time, but we couldn’t dive into it. Then Disney made the announcement about two months ago,” Allen shared with Daily Mail. “I’ve become friends with everyone involved in Toy Story, especially Tom Hanks. I feel blessed to have these friends in my life. I adore that character and the story. So I always wait to see the script.”

Allen also mentioned that the fifth film had been developing while Lightyear was being made, but he was discouraged from discussing it, even as Lightyear was heading to theaters.

“They came up with that. I think it’s getting closer, and I said unless it could be done really well, I know the crew didn’t want to do it,” the actor explained regarding Toy Story 5. “So none of us could mention any of this. Even when all the related Buzz or Lightyear movie was being released, this was all in the works. It was quite peculiar. That’s all.”

When Disney announced Lightyear, there was some confusion among people before its release. Fans eventually learned it was a movie set within the Toy Story world, portraying the fictional story behind the Buzz Lightyear toy. This ambitious approach to storytelling presented a challenge for regular audiences to grasp fully, and even those involved in making the films found it perplexing.

“There were two completely different movies. Chris Evans did a great job with his part,” the actor acknowledged. “It was very confusing for all of us working on the Toy Story movies. We wondered, which one was real. As someone who focuses on the script, if Buzz is real, then Chris’s version of it as an actor was really confusing to me.”

As of now, there is no specific release date for Toy Story 5.
