Tim Allen garnered widespread attention when he confirmed his return as the voice of Buzz Lightyear in "Toy Story 5" following the announcement of the new sequel by Disney CEO Bob Iger.
Following the disappointment of Disney's 2022 Pixar prequel "Lightyear," which featured Chris Evans in the role of Buzz Lightyear, 69-year-old actor Tim Allen tweeted a photo of the beloved "Toy Story" character. The "Toy Story" franchise is a massive hit in the animation world.
“See ya soon Woody, you are a sad strange little man and you have my pity,” Allen said in a viral tweet. “And off we go to a number 5! To infinity and beyond!”

Allen made his remarks only a few hours after the announcement by Iger that the studio was working on sequels for "Frozen," "Toy Story," and "Zootopia," as previously reported.
Previously, Allen spoke up about Evans voicing the iconic spaceman in the origin film. He stated that there was "no connection" to his renowned character in the animated franchise, although he expressed a desire for there to be one.
“The short answer is I’ve stayed out of this because it has nothing to do [with my character],” he said. “This is a whole new team that really had nothing to do with the first movies.”
“It’s a wonderful story,” he continued. “It just doesn’t seem to have any connection to the toy, and it’s a little … I don’t know. It just has no relationship to Buzz. It’s just no connection. I wish there was a better connection to this.”
According to Allen, any “Toy Story” movie featuring Buzz must include Woody, voiced by Tom Hanks. He stated that there could not be a “Toy Story” Buzz without Woody.
Hanks later expressed confusion over Disney’s decision to replace Allen with Chris Evans, of “Avengers” fame, as the voice of Buzz in “Lightyear.” The change sparked controversy in June as some speculated that the inclusion of LGBTQ scenes was the reason for the switch.
