When Pixar Animation Studios released Toy Story (1995), it not only changed the game for computer-animated movies, setting a new standard, but it introduced a generation to beloved characters like cowboy Woody (Tom Hanks), space ranger Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), Bo Peep (Annie Potts), and Rex (Wallace Shawn).

The Toy Stoy film franchise has spawned three sequels — so far — over the course of over two decades. Toy Story 2 (1999), Toy Story 3 (2010), and Toy Story 4 (2019) have seen Andy’s toys go on a plethora of adventures.

Recently, Disney shared a social media post about Toy Story 3, and fans of the popular movie series are not happy. The post showed Buzz, Woody, Slinky Dog (Blake Clark), Jessie (Joan Cusack), and the toy aliens staring after Andy’s car as he leaves for college:

“So long, partner.”

Jose L. Cepeda thinks that Toy Story 3 should have been the end of the franchise:

part 4 is an okay movie, but the franchise shouldve ended here. this was a near perfect ending to this trilogy. it made grown adults cry, for goodness sake!

The official description of Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 3 reads:

Jump back inside the toy box for a heartwarming and hilarious movie you’ll never forget. Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), and the rest of the toys return for an all-new adventure, along with a few new faces — some plastic, some plush — including Barbie’s counterpart Ken (Michael Keaton), thespian hedgehog Mr. Pricklepants (Timothy Dalton) and strawberry-scented Lots-o’-Huggin’ bear (Ned Beatty). 

As Andy prepares to depart for college, Woody, Buzz, Jessie and the rest of Andy’s faithful toys wonder what will become of them. But when a mix-up lands them at Sunnyside Daycare, they meet a host of new toys and soon discover that a wild adventure is just beginning.
