Tim Allen recently appeared on The Talk, and among the topics he discussed was the highly anticipated Toy Story 4.
Much has been under wraps about the nature of the film, especially since the swap of its writers and the departure of John Lasseter from Pixar. Allen, who says he’s already recording lines for Buzz Lightyear for the sequel, offers our first true glimpse into the tone and feel of the film since those major shake-ups. Here’s his full quote, followed by the clip itself:
I gotta resist getting emotional because I don’t want to give it away, but this is an incredibly great story. If you’re at all a superhero fan, Infinity War — I’m a big superhero fan — it didn’t seem like it was gonna work. But it was a lot of vignettes that all made sense. This, Toy Story 4 — and we’ve only been through it once, there will be several more incantations [sic] — but it is so emotional. It’s so funny. It’s so big, the idea they’ve come up with. I’m startled. 3 was, I thought, amazing. This, I couldn’t even get through the last scene. I’d love to be a Washington leaker, but I just can’t do it. I can’t give any more away. They’ve got great characters, but a couple of the scenes toward the end were really hard to get through.
The plot was originally a romantic comedy between Woody and Bo Peep, though with the changes in creative leadership, it is unknown if the project took a different direction.
Toy Story 4 will be the first Pixar feature released since Pete Docter’s newly instated tenure as Chief Creative Officer of the studio.
