Tim Allen dropped a few more hints about Toy Story 4 during a stop on The Tonight Show. While talking to Jimmy Fallon, the voice of Buzz Lightyear gave some indication about the role that Keanu Reeves plays in the much-anticipated sequel.
Allen didn't give too much away, but he indicated that Reeves' character is quite small, even among his fellow toys.
“Keanu Reeves has got a great part,” Allen told the host. “Actually, a little inside story, even [Reeves] said — gentle, wonderful guy that he is — ‘This sounds too much like Buzz Lightyear.’ And his character does have an edge to that. And the guy said, ‘So we calmed him down a little bit,’ and they reminded me his toy is only that big.”
Allen held his fingers about an inch apart to show that the new addition to Bonnie's room is probably not a full-sized action figure like the pull-string Sheriff Woody or the Space Commander Buzz Lightyear. It's unknown what role Reeves' character will play in the film, which follows Bonnie's toys as they take a road trip to teach a homemade toy named "Forky" how to be a toy and not a spork.
While that sounds a little silly, Allen promises that the movie packs a punch. He told Fallon that the ending is comparable to Gone With The Wind.
“I read it and I had to turn around, from looking at it in the studio, it was so emotional,” he said. “It’s a ‘Scarlet, I don’t give a damn’ moment.”
Toy Story 4 hits theaters on June 20, 2019.
