This week Toy Story fans rejoiced at the news that there was a fifth movie in the works at Pixar. Some Disney and Pixar fans are less than optimistic about the upcoming film and are questioning what it could be about. Fans and naysayers alike took to social media to poke fun at the upcoming sequel by sharing some comical plotline ideas under #YourBadToyStory5Pitch.
‘Toy Story 5’ in the Works at Disney
Most people thought the franchise’s fourth movie would be its last, but that is not the case. Now fans are left to speculate what the plot could be for the fifth movie. Fans took to Twitter to come up with some creative and comical plotlines for the upcoming movie- and the results are hilarious.
User @DanSlott pokes fun at actor Tom Hanks, who has played the character Woody since the first film, which was released in 1995.

Tom Hanks signs a contract so his voice can be digitized and future Pixar movies can be made w/o him.
Many years later, after peacefully passing away, Hanks wakes up to find that his CONSCIOUSNESS is in a Toy Story movie! He IS Woody FOREVER!#YourBadToyStory5Pitch

User @EricOswald1 has a more… unique idea for the fifth film.
Andy has a kid and gives him the toys. They get put in a box as the kid prefers his iphone. Forky stabs the kid and steals the phone. Siri plays the bad guy who helps Andy track down forky. In the meantime Buzz learns a valuable lesson in table manners. #YourBadToyStory5Pitch

User @Drew_B_Johnson hopes to see the toys start an uprising.
Woody watches Birth of a Nation (2016l) decides to become a freedom fighter for toy's rights and leads a Spartacus style uprising against the children who use them as play things.#YourBadToyStory5Pitch

This pitch by user @SuperlaserSeth seems awfully familiar…
Woody’s kid finally takes him on vacation… to a theme park created by a naive billionaire who has created a theme park resurrecting via cloning the world’s most dangerous prehistoric creatures: talking vehicles.

After reading the pitch from @SamKurnit, it’s clear that that’s enough Twitter for today!
Take it one step further: Andy has died and been buried with Buzz and Woody. The entire film is a tense claustrophobic escape story.#YourBadToyStory5Pitch

What Will the Real ‘Toy Story 5’ Be About?
All jokes aside, Toy Story 5 is a real movie that Pixar is going to release. The ending of Toy Story 4 (SPOILER!) ended with the gang parting ways and starting a new chapter. This ending did feel like the end of a series, but in reality, many fans were left feeling unsatisfied by the fourth movie. Of the four movies, the last had the weakest ratings from critics and fans. The Buzz Lightyear origin story, Lightyear, also did not meet the mark of many Pixar fans. With the announcement of the fifth movie, Toy Story fans are hoping that the fifth movie will be the perfect culmination for the franchise.
As of now, the only actor who has publically confined their contribution to the movie is actor Tim Allen, who plays Buzz Lightyear. Fans will have to keep speculating until Disney announces an actual plot for our favorite characters.
