Toy Story 4 is set to hit theaters next June, and from what Tom Hanks has been saying, we’ll need more Kleenex for it than we did for Toy Story 3.
In 2010, Disney/PIXAR released the third installment of the Toy Story franchise, in which Woody, Buzz and the gang find themselves in a tough spot as Andy prepares to leave for college. Toy Story 3 took fans on an emotional roller coaster–especially during the last 10 minutes of the film when Andy gives away his toys to a little girl named Bonnie because he knows she’ll play with them.
Tom Hanks, who lends his voice to Sheriff Woody, and Tim Allen, aka Buzz Lightyear have been talking about Toy Story 4 lately, and the consensus is that we will cry more tears during Toy Story 4 than we did in its predecessor.
“When I realized what they were going for,” Hanks said on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC, “I realized, ‘Oh, this is a moment in history!”
During an interview with ET Canada, Tim Allen called Toy Story 4 an “incredibly great story.” He went on to say that the new film was very emotional and that he “couldn’t even get through the last scene….a couple of scenes toward the end were really hard to get through.”
Neither of the stars were specific about the reasons for the emotions they felt during the scenes, but they’ve said enough to keep up guessing and make us eager for the opening!
