Previous statements by executive producer Shawn Levy also underscore the grand scale of the episodes, comparing them to blockbuster films. Although no specific release date is set, filming resumed in January 2024, with completion expected by mid-2025. Hawke can also be heard in "Inside Out 2," which recently passed the $1 billion mark.

The upcoming fifth season promises to wrap up the story with more intricate plotlines and expanded character arcs, continuing the show’s legacy of high-quality storytelling and production.
