While many of us aren’t quite over the emotional destruction Toy Story 3 left on our hearts, it’s time to prepare ourselves for Toy Story 4. Tim Allen has now revealed some heartbreaking new details about the upcoming film. Allen hinted that Toy Story 4 will reveal that the toys’ new owner “didn’t take care of us so well.”
“I just finished up a little bit of Toy Story 4, and Hanks was coming right after me, we’re all good buddies, and I asked him, ‘What can I tell them about this?’ And he goes, ‘You’ve already said a little bit too much,’” Allen said with a laugh on The Talk.
“I’ll say, Tom and I both — I’ve gotta be careful — we both read the last two lines of this movie, I get choked up, and he even said, ‘I had to turn around in the booth.’ I said, ‘I did, too.’ The last couple of scenes, especially the last lines of the movie, it will be a memorable moment for everybody. Oh, it’s wonderful. It’s wonderful.”
When Bonnie creates craft-project-turned-toy Forky, who believes he’s “trash” and not a plaything, veteran Woody takes it upon himself to get Forky to embrace life as a toy. But when an unexpected detour on Bonnie’s family road trip reunites Woody with former sweetheart Bo Peep (Annie Potts), who was long ago sold off in a yard sale, Woody and Bo soon find they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy.
“And Bo Peep has been missing, and you’re gonna find out — very tragically — where she’s been, and what that means for toys like her. And Woody has to decide where he’s gonna fall on that deal,” Allen said. “And it’s really so clever, so wonderful, so warm about it… and how they do this, I just said, this story is so emotional, so funny, so brilliant. All I’m seeing is, ‘does this end…?’
“Toy Story 3 ended, originally, with the little girl just sitting there, but all of us saw that little girl smile, and Andy said with his eyes… [that] she might take care of these toys. Because we were originally, in Toy Story 3, waving on the porch, that was it. But it looked like maybe this little girl will take care of us. Well, maybe she didn’t take care of us so well.”
A teaser trailer released last year showed Woody and Buzz Lightyear are reunited with their old friends, along with a new addition. The short clip showed long-running characters including Mr. Potato Head, Jessie, Rex, Hamm and Slinky Dog floating through a cloudy sky while holding hands. A new character, a spork with googly eyes called Forky, is also part of the line-up. The film follows Woody as he takes the newcomer under his wing.
The film is due to be released on 21 June.
