Why is Tim Allen crying a little more these days? He’s busy working on what should be a very emotional Toy Story 4. Everyone’s favorite space ranger is back with his friends, and Allen was on The Talk on Wednesday to discuss it. Without going into plot details, he shared how touching this installment is for him.
When asked about recording the upcoming movie, Allen said, “This is an incredibly great story. If you’re at all a superhero fan, Infinity Wars, that didn’t seem like it was going to work. It was a lot of vignettes that all made sense. This, Toy Story 4, we’ve only been through it once. There will be several more incantations, but it is so emotional. It’s so funny. It’s so big, the idea they’ve come up with. I’m startled. Three was, I thought, amazing. This, I couldn’t even get through the last scene.”
He says he can’t give away any more secrets, though he’d like to.
The Toy Story franchise began in 1995 with the introduction of Andy and his toys, odd couple Woody the cowboy and Buzz Lightyear, Space Ranger, along with their friends. Many fans have grown up with Andy and feel a unique connection to the series. With the main cast returning for a fourth installment, there is something special about this world that Pixar has created.
Josh Cooley is taking his first shot at directing a full length feature for Disney and Pixar, though he did direct the shorts George and A.J. and Riley’s First Date.
Toy Story 4 hits theaters in June 2019.
