Tim Allen Admits He Had A 'Tough Time' Watching Toy Story 4
While the ending of the franchise was tough for viewers - with many saying they'd been left in tears during the movie - it's been even rougher for those involved with the movies.
Tim Allen, who has voiced Buzz Lightyear since the first flick all the way back in 1995, admitted that he had a 'tough time' watching the fourth movie.
Speaking to US Weekly, he said: "It's a very different Pixar movie. It's not sombre, but very reflective, layered. I put too much into it because I'm involved in it. I'm too close to it.
"I literally had a tough time watching it, because it brought up some of my own personal stuff about loss, change, moving on. It's heartwarming. A little tough, but essentially pays off."
He went on to say that Buzz and Woody (played by Tom Hanks), were the 'Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck' of a generation, before adding that they were iconic characters. You can say that again, mate.
Revealing more about recording the movie, he added: "There's a very short scene that both Hanks and I had trouble with because I thought there were more pages. It ends, and I got choked up. I literally had a hard time saying it. He did too. We both had the same reaction.
"Twenty-five or so years of friendship between Woody and Buzz has morphed into a very close friendship with Hanks and I."
But before you get too downhearted, Hanks recently told LADbible that he 'wouldn't be surprised' if a fifth movie was made.
Speaking to LADbible, he said: "Well, no one is planning on it, but I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere two-and-a-half years from now, someone has this kernel of an idea that could become [Toy Story 5]."
"None of the Toy Story movies are in a schedule, they're not in a pipeline. They don't say, 'On this date, we'll start work on the next Toy Story movie.' They wait until someone comes up with a Toy Story idea that is worthwhile pursuing.
"But I think it's better that no one is anticipating that; I think there is a strength in saying, 'This is as far as we've been able to go and we don't see anything else coming after that,' because otherwise it ends up being some inorganic approach to something that has been very, very organic."
Make it happen, guys.
