‘Toy Story 5’ Under Consideration By Disney-Pixar. At the moment, there are no active plans to add another film to the franchise, but the studio is not ruling out the possibility for a ‘Toy Story 5‘ in the future.
“Every film we make, we treat it like it’s the first and the last film we’re ever going to make,” producer Mark Nielsen said during a Pixar press event for Toy Story 4. “So you force yourself to make it hold up. You don’t get in over your skis. Whether there’s another one? I don’t know. If there is, it’s tomorrow’s problem.”
“We are our own toughest critics,” Nielsen said. “We love these characters more than anyone. We don’t want to mess anything up.”
Then Pixar president Ed Catmull stressed the importance of doing “an original film a year,” telling Buzzfeed in 2013, “Every once in a while, we get a film where we want or people want to see something continuing in that world — which is the rationale behind the sequel. They want those characters, which means we were successful with them. But if you keep doing that, then you aren’t doing original films.”
He continued with the strategy he envisioned for releasing “one and a half” films a year. by the Studio. “We’re going to have an original film every year, then every other year have a sequel to something,” Catmull said. “That’s the rough idea.”
“Most studios jump on doing a sequel as soon as they have a successful film, but our business model is a filmmaker model, and we don’t make a sequel unless the director of the original film has an idea that they like and are willing to go forward on,” Morris told EW.
“A sequel in some regards is even harder [than the original] because you’ve got this defined world which, on the one hand, is a leg up, and on the other hand has expectations that you can’t disappoint on.”
The basis of their thinking is to produce both new, original content for fans to fall in love with, while still continuing on the stories of beloved characters in a timely manner and with respect to the filmmaking process.
During an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Tom Hanks shared that TS4 ends with a very emotional goodbye.
“This is the end of the series and I had gotten some texts from Tim Allen. These texts that say, ‘Have you recorded yet? Have you been in? Have you had a session yet?’ I said, ‘No, not yet.’ [Allen says] ‘Wait until you see those last pages. Tough one, tough one,’” Tom Hanks said.
He continued, “And it was! The last few sessions we’re saying goodbye to Woody and Buzz and Bonnie’s room and Andy and everybody. And it was emotional.”
Toy Story 4 is set to release June 21, 2019.
The next film on Pixar’s schedule set to be released is an original film called Onward starring Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home) and directed by Dan Scanlon (Monsters University).
Disney-Pixar has four other original-untitled films in the works for the studio set to be directed by Mark Andrews (Brave), Brian Fee (Cars 3), Dome Shi (Bao), and Pete Docter (Inside Out). All four films have release dates set for 2022.
Though there are no plans at the moment for a Toy Story 5, we could see the studio produce another sequel in the future featuring our favorite toys.
