Why is Lightyear Coming Instead of Toy Story 5?
When people expected the fifth film Toy Story series, Lightyear will come in 2022. The Toy Story franchise is one of the most successful animated movies franchises. It introduced the world of very well alive toys like the rest of us.
All four films of Toy Story have received great commercial and critical success. Thus, many box office records were also made by the franchise movies from Pixar. Seeing this, the makers saw vast potential for success and decided to make a Lightyear spin-off film.
Lightyear is being made to tell the audience the origin of Buzz Lightyear. Chris Evans will be giving his voice to the character of Buzz Lightyear. Pixar announced this project via Twitter in December 2020. It is expected to come in June 2022.
Buzz Lightyear doesn’t realize that he is not a space cadet, so this makes the plot of the spin-off film Lightyear interesting. The spin-off had been in development since 2016 after the release of Finding Dory. Apart from having four films, the franchise has expanded its world through various spin-off films and shows. In 2019, a series Forky Asks a Question came on Disney+ released.
Various Spin-Offs of Toy Story
Toy Story’s studio is seen developing various independent projects based on iconic characters and other characters. Forky got its spin-off on Disney+ in which we see him deal with several questions and issues that are difficult for a mere plastic fork to understand and answer.
Bo Peep was also seen in her short film titled Lamp Life. Such short films help fill in the gaps created around that character. It was made after the second movie; Toy Story was released. Well, it can be said that Pixar and Disney are well versed in how to keep their characters relevant to date.
It is worth noting that Lightyear will be releasing in 2022, and thus it opens many doors for the spin-offs of Toy Story. Many new chapters can be added to the plot of the Toy Story franchise. There being no confirmation on the subject and even the idea of Toy Story 5, it will be worth waiting for Lightyear. Moreover, if any updates on Toy Story 5 come, the article will be updated for our cherished readers.
