Peter Doctor, Pixar’s chief creative officer, blamed the failure of Toy Story on the fans. In what appeared to be a smear against the fans, the Pixar executive said that the producers of the sequel “asked too much of the audience.” Disney continually fails to recognize that parents enjoy movie-going with their children to watch a fun, family-friendly film. They want to avoid spending money occupying their free time and exposing their children to woke political agendas.
Docter told The Wrap,
“We’ve done a lot of soul-searching about that because we all love the movie. We love the characters and the premise. I think probably what we’ve ended on in terms of what went wrong is that we asked too much of the audience.”
The movie incited anger after adding a lesbian kiss and removing Tim Allen as the voice of Buzz Lightyear. Chris Evans replaced the conservative comedian, which also irritated Toy Story fans. Disney insisted that they needed to change Lightyear’s voice because the film had a different tone.

The movie had a $200 million budget but likely spent a considerable amount more after marketing the film. However, the movie only brought in a meager $226.4 million in receipts. Whereas Toy Story 4, which featured Allen, generated over $1 billion at the box office with the same budget.
Disney is planning to make a Toy Story 5 and bring back its original characters. They announced that Tim Allen would be part of the returning cast.
Chris Evans appeared to enjoy the controversial nature of the film and pushing a woke agenda toward kids. He expressed irritation that the film was not well received by blaming audiences who he said had not “caught up,”
“Yeah, it’s frustrating. It feels good to be a part of something that is making social progress, but it’s with this ribbon of bittersweet frustration that, at the same time, there are still places that have not caught up.'”
Thirteen Muslim nations barred the film entirely and kept Disney+ from adding it for viewers in their countries.
Twitter users did not spare the filmmaker, heaping criticism on the film’s woke tone. “Please, no woke content. I just want a normal Toy Story movie.”

One tweet noted that Disney is failing overall as a company,
“Fruits of the woke take-over of Disney: “The Mouse House is looking to save money, ruin lives and diminish its brand all at the same time. It is running on fumes from when it was a functioning business. But a virus doesn’t care about health of its host.”
