Will there be a Toy Story 5? Buzz and Woody last returned in Toy Story 4, but is Pixar making a fifth movie?

In 1995, the world of animation changed forever. After decades of Disney’s extraordinary classics, and DreamWorks slowly rising to become a titan, a new name entered the fold and blew people away: Pixar.

While still under the umbrella of Disney, Pixar pioneered a new age of filmmaking with computer-animated movies, beginning with their biggest and best achievement: Toy Story, spawning three beloved, Oscar-winning sequels.

It’s been three years since the last movie, so the question is: is there going to be a Toy Story 5?

DIs Toy Story 5 happening?

Yes, Toy Story 5 has been announced by Disney!

During the company’s recent Q1 earnings call, CEO Bob Iger said (as per Collider): “Today I’m so pleased to announce that we have sequels in the works from our animation studios to some of our most popular franchises, Toy Story, Frozen, and Zootopia.

“We’ll have more to share about these productions soon, but this is a great example of how we’re leaning into our unrivaled brands and franchises.”

Prior to the release of Toy Story 4 – in itself more of an epilogue than a sequel – Tim Allen said he’d be game to return as Buzz Lightyear again.

“Once you’ve gotten to four, you’re passed that trilogy [point], so I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t do it, certainly. If you ask me, I’d say do five,” he told CinemaBlend.

However, when earlier speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, producer Mark Nielsen said Pete Docter is “really looking out for the new voices and really loading up the development poo. It’s all original films after this one right now.”

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Tom Hanks said he believed the series would “live forever”, but Toy Story 4 was the final installment in the franchise.

We’ve since had spinoffs with Lightyear, Lamp Life, and Forky Asks a Question, but Toy Story 5 has yet to be ruled out by the studio.

During the press day for the fourth movie, Nielsen said: “Every film we make, we treat it like it’s the first and the last film we’re ever going to make.

“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.”

It’s unclear if Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, or any of the cast are returning for Toy Story 5. We also don’t have a release date or any other details.
