Disney has recently announced some superhit sequels including “Toy Story 5.” Since then, fans have been eagerly waiting to know the details of the upcoming instalment. The expectations have now grown after the Pixar CEO Pete Docter hinted at a ‘surprising’ story for the film. He also teased that the upcoming film “got some really cool stuff that [audiences] haven’t seen before.”
Pete talked about how they’ve ended up at the fifth instalment with having ‘no idea’ in a recent interview with The Wrap, “The thing we’ve been really trying to do, and this has been the case for a while, is we’ve been looking at them a little bit like, okay, we’re not planning for the future. When we made the first ‘Toy Story,’ we had no idea there would be a ‘Toy Story 2.’ We’re just trying to make this movie. But that in making the movie, it takes you places, unexpected places, which is what I love about the creative process. If I knew exactly what I was doing when I started making a movie, there’d kind of be no point in making it. I discover so much along the way,”
When asked about the details of the upcoming film, he replied, “I think it’ll be surprising. It’s got some really cool stuff that you haven’t seen before.”
Pete talks about Lightyear’s box-office failure
The Pixar executive further talked about how the fans expectations were failed with “Lightyear.” He said, “When they hear Buzz, they’re like, great, where’s Mr. Potato Head and Woody and Rex? And then we drop them into this science fiction film that they’re like, What?, I think in the way that characters were drawn, that they were portrayed. It was much more of a science fiction. I think there was a disconnect between what people wanted/expected and what we were giving to them.”
The first four instalments of the ‘Toy Story’ franchise are now available to stream on Disney+.
