Keanu Reeves lends his voice to a new character introduced in Toy Story 4. That actor Tim Allen reported in The Tonight Show by Jimmy Fallon.
Allen did not want to tell you exactly what role Reeves, known from films like The Matrix, Speed and John Wick, has. “But it’s a great role”, said the actor, who has already given four films the voice of Buzz Lightyear.
Allen also did not want to go into the story of the film. Producer Disney launched a number of teasers in recent weeks in which nothing is given away about the plot. However, several new characters have already been introduced, such as Forky, which is voiced by Veep star Tony Hale.
Gone with the wind
According to Allen, the fourth part is very moving. He compares the final scene with the lock of Gone with the Wind. “It’s a ‘Scarlett, I do not give a damm’ moment,” he described.
The Toy Story series tells about living toys that all experience adventures. The main characters are astronaut Buzz Lightyear and cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks). The first three parts were hugely successful and generated $ 2 billion worldwide. It is thus the fifth most successful series of animations in history.
The fourth part will be shown in the cinemas in the summer of 2019.
