Tim Allen has shared what his dream plot would be for Toy Story 5 - and it sounds absolutely perfect.
Toy Story is one of the most beloved animated movies of all time and spawned three sequels, with the last coming in 2019. It is a money-making juggernaut for Pixar and Disney and has made the companies billions through box office and merchandise sales.
Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that Toy Story 5 is coming, as well as sequels to other iconic movies.
In a recent call with Disney investors, CEO Bob Iger said: "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 unrivalled brands and franchises."
Allen, who voiced Buzz Lightyear for the first four movies, reckons the plot of number five should put the focus back on Andy, who is now an adult.
"This is really off the cuff. It made me very emotional yesterday because a guy—I went to get coffee at a very small little coffee bar that he grinds his own coffee—asked me the same question just yesterday," he said in an interview with MovieDweeb.
"I don't know if this is where the story is going, but what if the whole story was through Andy as 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 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. And I said, 'What a wonderful idea, it's all through Andy's eyes because we made his life, and now he's returning that favour."
