The 69-year-old actor spoke after a follow-up film failed at the opening weekend, while Allen encountered a lack of continuity with the Toy Story franchise and its exclusion from the “new team” project.

He told Extra on Wednesday: “It’s an amazing story, it just doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the toy. He has nothing to do with Buzz.

“We talked about it many years ago … but the (best) brass band that made the first four movies isn’t this.

“It’s a brand new team that really had nothing to do with the first films.”

Allen, also known for playing Tim “The Toolman” Taylor on the ABC Home Improvement sitcom from 1991 to 1999, voiced the character of Buzz Lightyear alongside Tom Hanks (65), who voiced cowy Woody in Pixar’s 1995 Toy Story .

It earned $ 373 million at the box office, while Allen reprized his vocal roles in several sequels and animated shorts, and also voiced the space-obsessed toy Buzz in Toy Story 4 of 2019.

Lightyear earned only $ 51.7 million in North America when it opened and was withdrawn from 14 countries for including a gay kissing scene that Disney refused to censor.

Legions of Toy Story fans speculated whether Allen was replaced in the project by Chris Evans (41) after Allen’s support for the Republican Party and conservatism.

He was quoted as saying that he “liked the fact that Donald Trump had avoided people” and ed of his participation in Trump’s inauguration in 2017: “You will be beaten if you do not believe what everyone believes. It’s like the 1930s Germany. “

Allen also told Extra on Wednesday that he did not originally think that the Light Year would be animated and that it would be live action.

He said: “Without Woody, there really is no ‘Toy Story’ Buzz. I’m not sure what the idea is – I’m a plot. It would seem like a great adventure story, and as I see it, it’s not a great adventure story. “

For Allen, ABC canceled his sitcom Last Man Standing in 2017, although it was one of the most popular shows at the time, and it is speculated that it was due to his refusal to back down from his political statements.
