Pixar boss Pete Docter opened up about Toy Story 5 and joked that the film will be “amazing”.
When it was announced that a fifth installment in the popular franchise was in the works, it was met with a lot of skepticism as the previous films rounded out the story well.
Now, in an interview with The WrapDocter revealed why Pixar is making a fifth Toys Story film and teased that it will show fans things they’ve never seen before.
“When we did the first Toys Storywe had no idea there would be one toy story 2. We’re just trying to make this movie.
“But in making the film, it takes you to unexpected places, which is what I love about the creative process,” he explained.

Docter continued, “If I knew exactly what I was doing when I started making a film, it wouldn’t make sense to do it. I discover a lot along the way.”
He also explained that he equates the creative process of making Toys Story movies with a journey where you have a specific destination in mind, but then stray along the way and “return home wiser and more worldly”.
When asked what he can reveal about Toy Story 5Docter teased, “I think it’s going to be surprising. It’s got some really cool stuff that you haven’t seen before.”
