Allen shared the news shortly after Disney CEO Bob Iger announced plans to develop sequels for the Toy Story franchise, along with sequels for Frozen and Zootopia.

“Today, I’m so pleased to announce that we have sequels in the works from our animation studios to some of our most popular franchises: Toy Story, Frozen, and Zootopia,” Iger said during the company’s first-quarter earnings call. “This is a great example of how we’re leaning into our unrivaled brands and franchises.”

The news of Allen, 69, returning to voice the infamous Toy Story character follows controversy surrounding Chris Evans as the voice of Buzz in last year’s Pixar prequel Lightyear, which proved to be a box office flop.

The film, which was released in June 2022, earned $118.3 million and currently ranks 598 at the all-time domestic box office and 114 among the all-time domestic box office for Disney movies.
