Toy Story has been one franchise that managed to become a part of many people’s childhoods. From the first film to the fourth, everyone has been able to take one or the other share of the story in ways that make the franchise one of the most iconic animated works of Disney. Every installment holds a special place in the fans’ hearts and without a doubt, they want more.
Disney is no stranger to making sequels. Having already greenlit Frozen 4 even before the third part was released. Tim Allen, the voice of Buzz Lightyear seems to have an idea regarding where he wants the 5th installment of Toy Story to go. The actor wants Andy to go on a hunt for all his old toys in the fifth part of the franchise.
Toy Story 5 According to Tim Allen’s Eyes
Tim Allen revealed in an interview with The Movie Dweeb that although there is no particular story ready for Toy Story 5, he would like to see a time in which Andy is all grown up and has kids. Allen talked about how he would enjoy a version of the plot to take a turn into the future with aspects of the past seeping their way into the present.
“I don’t know this is where the story’s going, but what if the whole story was through… Andy is an adult, 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 he’s in a… they’re selling these vintage toys.”
It would begin with Andy discovering an old toy, his old Buzz Lightyear toy with a missing hand. This would initiate an entire search for all the lost toys that Andy gave away once he began to grow up.
Tim Allen Wants Andy to Start it All Over Again
Tim Allen further stated while talking on The Movie Dweeb that the idea would be to collect all the old toys and bring them back for Andy’s son. The fifth Toy Story movie, although yet to be confirmed, would be a goose chase just to start anew.
“And Andy goes and gathers all the toys up. He has to go out and find each one of them, put them back together, bring them back to his house, and starts the whole thing over again with his son. And I said, ‘What a wonderful idea is that he brings it [back]. It’s all through Andy’s eyes, because we made his life, and now he’s returning that favor.”
The plot in itself could disrupt the legacy and flow that the franchise had created. The fourth film was already a skeptical risk, one that Disney luckily managed to pull off. However, to bring another film that would give a sense of do-over would make the entire concept meaningless.
