‘Toy Story 3’ was so emotional that many fans still haven’t gotten over it. And by “many fans” I mostly mean myself. Remember the incinerator?! Well, if you thought you were over it, think again, because it sounds like ‘Toy Story 4’ is going to be just as emotional!
Tim Allen, the voice behind space ranger Buzz Lightyear, recently appeared on The Talk, and he was asked about the upcoming fourth installment of the ‘Toy Story’ franchise. In an unexpected comparison, Allen likened ‘Toy Story’ to ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ You know, the Marvel movie that ripped our hearts out by turning all of our favorite characters to dust?
Talking about how emotional the story will be, Allen explained:
“Yes. I can’t believe it. I gotta resist getting emotional because I don’t wanna give it away but this is an incredibly great story. If you’re at all a big superhero fan, ‘Infinity War’ – I’m a big superhero fan – that didn’t seem like it was going to work [but[ it was a lot of vignettes that all made sense. This ‘Toy Story 4’ [did that]. 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 that they’ve come up with. I’m startled. 3 I thought was amazing. This one, I couldn’t even get through the last scene, OK?”
Allen had to stop there, as he didn’t want to reveal any more information about the upcoming film. He said:
“I’d love to be a Washington leaker, but I just can’t do it. I can’t give it any more away. They’ve got great characters, but a couple of the scenes towards the end were really hard to get through.”
Well, it sounds like we need to start getting ready to get hit right in the feels when ‘Toy Story 4’ hits theaters on June 21, 2019.
