On an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Tom Hanks said that the fourth film would be the final film in the main Toy Story series. He said that Tim Allen had "warned him about the emotional final goodbye between their characters Woody and Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story 4."[2] However, producer Mark Nielsen did not rule out a possibility of a fifth film stating: "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."[3] Shortly after the fourth film's release, Annie Potts said that despite her not knowing if another film would be made, she believes a lot of fans will be interested to see what the toys do next.[4] A few months before the film's release, Tim Allen hinted that a fifth film is possible, while also expressing interest in doing another film, stating, "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."[5] On December 10, 2020 at Disney Investor Day, Lightyear was announced, a spin-off prequel film depicting the in-universe origin of the Buzz Lightyear character, with Chris Evans as the new voice of Buzz Lightyear.[1][6] According to Evans, the film is not based on the toy Buzz seen in previous films, but serves as the "origin story of the human Buzz Lightyear that the toy is based on".[7]


Lightyear is scheduled to be released in the United States on June 17, 2022.[1][6]
