Pixar’s Pete Docter Confirms Some of the Returning Characters in TOY STORY 5

In a recent interview with Variety, Pixar Boss Pete Docter talk about the studio’s latest release Elemental. In that interview, Docter focused on Pixar’s future slate of animated projects, specifically the unexpected fifth installment in the Toy Story franchise.

Docter was asked What’s next for Pixar? Docter shared, “The next thing we have coming up is our first long-form streaming series, Win or Lose. It looks like Pixar, but in a new flavor that we haven’t experienced before. It’s really cool.”

Docter shared that, “Inside Out coming out next summer, and then “Elio.” That’s about a kid who feels like he doesn’t quite fit in. Somehow, he is selected to be the Earth’s representative at an intergalactic community of planets. The fate of the Earth is in this kid’s hands. We had an audience test screening last week. It’s compelling, fun, and very funny.”

“As for “Inside Out,” a bunch more emotions get to come in. It’s not just the five we saw in the first film. The team on that one put together a really great story that I think also has real depth and meaning to it. So fingers crossed that people like it.”

Finally, Docter briefly mentioned, “We have another Toy Story, so Woody and Buzz are back.” While the details of the fifth film are shroud in mystery, news of both Woody and Buzz’s return is sure to delight longtime fans who may have worried that we had said goodbye to Tom Hanks and Woody in Toy Story 4. Tim Allen confirmed earlier this year that he was returning to the franchise for the fifth installment after having handed the role of the movie version of Buzz Lightyear to Chris Evans.

The original Toy Story, released in 1995, was the first feature-length film entirely created using computer-generated imagery (CGI). It revolutionized the animation industry and set a new standard for visual storytelling. The franchise continued to push the boundaries of animation with each subsequent installment.

One of the most remarkable aspects of the Toy Story franchise is its ability to appeal to audiences of different generations. Many who grew up with the original film in the ’90s have continued to follow the franchise, and new generations have been introduced to the films, creating a shared experience across age groups.

A whole new generation of fans can expect great offerings from Pixar Studios in the near future. What do you think of the news that Woody and Buzz will both be back in Toy Story 5? Share your excitement with us in a comment.
