Tom Hanks Says Recording Final Scene In Toy Story 4 Was A 'Moment In History'

Tom Hanks has said that recording the last scene in Toy Story 4 - the last scene in the whole franchise - was a 'moment in history'. And as a fan who can't bloody wait to see this, I'm going to say he's probably right.

Speaking on the Radio 2 Breakfast Show, Hanks, who plays cowboy Woody, told Chris Evans: "The way you record Toy Story, you're in a room with the team that has created it.

"When I went in for my last day of recording, I wanted to have my back to them, because usually, you're facing him, so he can look right up and you can talk about it. But I didn't want to see them and pretend they couldn't see me.

"When I realised what they were going for, I realised, 'Oh, this is a moment in history.'"

And if you're not tearing up just yet, earlier this year, Tim Allen (better known as Buzz Lightyear to Toy Story fans) revealed that he was left in tears during the recording of the final scenes.

Speaking on CBS show The Talk, Allen said: "It is so emotional, it's so funny, it's so big, the idea they've come up with, I'm startled.

"I couldn't even get through the last scene. I would love to be a Washington leaker."

When asked for more details, he remained tight-lipped, adding: "I just can't do it. I can't give any more away.

"They've got great characters but a couple of scenes toward the end were really hard to get through."

So, a safe bet to say that fans will be left crying in the cinema, yeah?

Allen also opened up about how the script for a fourth and final instalment was too good to say 'no' to.


In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Allen divulged: "Somehow they were able to advance this wonderful story that could have easily ended with number three being the best of the bunch.

"It's emotional and funny and exciting and different and took it to a whole new level. It walks the line between comfort - you know what's going on - and discomfort - wondering what's going to happen. It's terrifically emotional."

Plot details are being kept under wraps at the moment, but rumours suggest that this movie will focus on the relationship between Bo Peep and Woody, which would make sense given that Andy would be in his 30s now.

Toy Story 4 is set to hit cinemas on 21 June 2019.
