Pixar has been thrilling children and audiences for nearly three decades, with films set in every setting, from the superhero farce in “The Incredibles” to the underwater kingdom of “Finding Nemo” and even the backward future of “WallE”. However, animation’ s main asset has always been the “Toy Story” brand. The story of Woody, Buzz and the rest of Andy’s toys (and now Bonnie) remains one of Pixar’s most beloved creations, with the franchise appearing to end with “Toy Story 4” in 2019.
Or is it really over? After all, even “Toy Story 3” felt like an ending.
While we haven’t received any concrete news regarding the official green light for the fifth installment of the “Toy Story” series, several people close to the franchise have made it clear that they are joining the game for yet another crackdown. In fact, Buzz Lightyear voice actor Tim Allen recently spoke up and confirmed (according to Devidiscourse) that he wants to do a fifth season. With that in mind, let’s dive into what we currently know about “Toy Story 5,” such as a release date and potential cast, along with all the possible plot details.
Will we ever get Toy Story 5?
At the time of this writing, Pixar has yet to confirm “Toy Story 5”. Therefore, there is no confirmed release date at this time. However, we do know that Pixar currently has “Turning Red” and “Lightyear” scheduled for release in 2022 and an untitled film due to hit theaters in 2023. With that in mind and pairing them with the fact that Pixar films take a long time to develop after their official announcements, it seems reasonable to assume that the release of “Toy Story 5” (yet to be announced) confirmed) is still at least a few years away.
It is also worth noting that should “Toy Story 5” eventually happen, we can expect the film to be released during the summer months. In fact, the two most recent “Toy Story” films debuted during the summer blockbuster season and performed well at the box office. While this is different from the first two films – “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2” were released in November 1995 and 1999 respectively – it’s hard to argue with a trend towards success.
The possible plot for the movie
Since “Toy Story 5 ″ has yet to get the nod and it’s unclear if Pixar is considering the idea, specific plot details aren’t available at this time. However, given the location of “Toy Story
,” the hypothetical sequel could explore many themes. In the final moments of the film, Buzz and Woody end up going their separate ways as Buzz takes full leadership alongside Jessie the Cowgirl Yodel. At the same time, Woody went to watch the sunset with Bo Peep. With Woody gone, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the toys will have to come together to take care of Bonnie and help her grow up.
This sets the stage for Buzz to become the toy leader, but on the other hand, it can be fun to leave this particular group of toys: Woody and Bo are now living childless lives all over the world, and “Toy Story 5” can also delve deeper into this myth to explore more deeply how toys live when they have no children in their life.
On the other hand, it is worth mentioning that “Lightyear” will be released in 2022, which could open up a whole new avenue of “Toy Story” spin-off that we didn’t even know were possible. , without adding chapters to the series itself. At the moment, we still don’t know if “Toy Story 5” will happen, but keep an eye out for any potential updates.
