Tim Allen Confirms Disney Has Reached Out to Him About Next ‘Toy Story’ Film And Also Shares His Ideas For Where the Story Could Go

Tim Allen has shared where things for him with the next Toy Story film. The update about Toy Story 5 comes after Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that the film was in the works earlier this year. Hanks confirmed on Tuesday night on The Tonight Show that both he and Tom Hanks have been reached out to about returning to the roles of Buzz Lightyear and Woody.

“Bob Iger, head of Disney, said it was on,” Allen said on The Tonight Show. “He actually said it was going to happen. They have reached out to Tom and I to reprise the roles. They’re not saying anything about it.”

He also revealed that he was a bit hesitant about returning to the role. This is unsurprising after how the Toy Story 4 left the characters going in very different directions. “For people like me, it’s just like — I’m a sci-fi buff. You wonder if four was too many, is five too much?” he asked. However, he added, “According to the scuttlebutts, the writer that’s doing it wrote one of the better ones and he said, ‘If I didn’t get this right, I wouldn’t do it.’ So it could be a very, very interesting way to reunite it.”

The way to reunite Buzz and Woody would undoubtably be interesting. Where they both left off had Woody living at the carnival with Bo Peep and Buzz still at Bonnie’s house. Bringing these two back together could be a full movie in itself. However, Allen also shared an idea for how he thought the two could come together, with the help of a now-grown Andy. Andy (voiced by John Morris) was the first human owner of both Woody and Buzz. In a recent interview with MovieWeb, Allen shared his ideas for how the two could be reunited.

“I don’t know if this is where the story is going, but what if the whole story was through Andy as an adult? [He] has children, and they just happen to be online, and the kid goes, ‘Have you ever seen this toy?’ and Andy sees that Buzz has got a hand missing and they’re selling these vintage toys, and Andy goes and gathers all the toys up. He has to go out and find each one of them and put them back together, bring them back to his house, and start the whole thing over again with his son.”

Allan continued saying “…It’s all through Andy’s eyes because we [the toys] made his life, and now he’s returning that favor.”

Just what the plotline is for Toy Story 5 is currently remains completely unknown. It won’t be until a much later date that Disney and Pixar reveal the future for some of the world’s most beloved toys. What do you think of a fifth Toy Story being made?
