Tim Allen confirmed that he would be back for Toy Story 5 on Twitter and wrote, “See ya soon Woody, you are a sad strange little man and you have my pity. And off we go to a number 5! To infinity and beyond!”

Patricia Heaton, who starred in the TV sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, commented on the recasting at the time.
