Toy Story 5 Announced
It’s amazing to think that it’s now 28 years since the original first movie Toy Story came onto our screens and introduced the now iconic characters of Sheriff Woody (Tom Hanks), Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), and more favourites back in 1995.
Speculating about what it would be like if toys came to life when owners weren’t looking or around, it was an instant hit and has remained popular over the years with each sequel continuing to grow the popularity of the franchise.
Now the fifth instalment has been announced.
Toy Story 5 Announcement
Just when we had stowed away our cowboy hats and space ranger wings, it looks like Toy Story will be back. At Disney’s recent Q1 Earnings Call, The Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger announced that, in addition to Zootopia 2 and Frozen 3, Toy Story 5 is officially in development at Pixar.
The surprise announcement means there’s not very much information on the plots for Toy Story 5 or which characters will make a return.
Pixar’s Upcoming Release Schedule
On the docket for later in 2023 is Elemental, a story set in a world where elements come to life and coexist, where a young man made of water and a young woman made of fire defy their differences to fall in love.
2024 brings new Pixar projects Elio, a sci-fi epic following a young human boy who becomes an alien ambassador, as well as Inside Out 2, the sequel to the 2015 hit about Riley and her emotions.
We don’t yet know when Toy Story 5 will be released, but based on previous releases we can get an idea. For example, Toy Story 4 was announced in 2014, and arrived on screens in 2019. If Toy Story 5 takes a similar time in production it could be out in cinemas in 2028. Mind you, they could speed up production to bring it out sooner.
