Pixar has been our regular supplier of fun for over two decades. The studio has made several films that have attracted audiences of all ages. And the Toy Story franchise is one of the studio’s most popular ventures. The third part of the film, which took more than ten years after the second film, was considered by many to be the last film. However, Studio Pixar surprised fans in 2019 with the fourth part. And since then, fans have been raving that Toy Story 5 is coming. So let’s discuss what we know about it.
Will there be Toy Story 5?
The fourth installment of the Toy Story franchise, released on June 21, 2019. The film saw fans trying to help Woody Forky, who was in an existential crisis. Woody tries to make Forky realize how important he is in the life of his owner, Bonnie. Now, as for Toy Story 5, there is no official confirmation about the fifth film from Pixar Studios. We know that the studio is currently working on “Turning Red” and “Lightyear,” both of which will be released in 2022.
Given the immense popularity of the Toy Story franchise, there is a chance that Pixar is looking towards making the fifth film. However, Toy Story 2, 3 and 4 were separated from each other for more than two decades. So even if there are plans for Toy Story 5, fans should expect the movie any minute now. Meanwhile, there are some interesting fan theories about the movie below, which we hope you enjoy.
Sid’s father is an alcoholic!
Of course, there are some bleak interpretations of Toy Story. One of the shady hypotheses is one involving Sid’s father. Reddit user chili powder assumed from the first movie that Sid’s father was an abusive drinker.
Both Sid and the family dog appear to be afraid of the father, which is proof of that. Sid’s father is also depicted sleeping with beer cans on the floor in the few scenes viewers see of him. This partly explains Sid’s violent behavior with his toys.
Jessie once belonged to Andy’s mother
Jessie, the cowgirl, appears in the second film. Emily, her owner, was indifferent to her. Some Reddit users have speculated that Emily is Andy’s mother. What viewers perceive of Emily was used as evidence to support this argument. Many fans have commented that she looks like Andy and even wears a hat similar to his. If Emily is Andy’s mom, it’s possible it’s the same hat. The bleak thought that Emily doesn’t remember Jessie and Jessie doesn’t recognize her adult owner goes hand in hand with this argument.
The toy is immortal
Another popular Toy Story theory doing the rounds today is the one that defines the beginning and the end of a toy’s life. Few fans on Reddit speculate that toys cannot die unless they are broken or burned. Sid’s toys from the first movie are the most compelling evidence. He inadvertently tortures them by tearing them apart and putting them back together with new pieces. They are still conscious, despite this. Another ally is Mr. Potato Head, who can still feel his body parts even when they are separated from him.
Woody belonged to Andy’s father
Another idea about Andy’s father is that he was Woody’s former owner. Another reason for Woody’s popularity can be found in this theory. Woody’s approach to Andy resembles a father figure because he wants to protect and please him. This may be due to Woody’s knowledge of what his previous owner would have wanted. Since Andy offers Woody to Bonnie, this adds an extra emotional layer to the third film.
