Tim Allen was so "startled" by the emotional impact of "Toy Story 4," he "couldn't even get through the last scene."
"A couple of the scenes toward the end are really hard to get through," he told "The Talk" hosts. That may sound dark, but Allen raved that it's "an incredibly great" story. It's still a "Toy Story" movie, and so far it sounds like it's going to be one of Pixar's greats. We only have a little over a year to wait to see it.
Allen had to hold back emotion even talking about "Toy Story 4," which he compared to the recent Marvel blockbuster "Avengers: Infinity War."
Here's what Allen said when Sara Gilbert of "The Talk" asked if he had returned to the recording booth as Buzz Lightyear:
"Yes... I gotta resist getting emotional, 'cause 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' is -- I'm a big superhero fan -- that didn't seem like it was going to work. It was a lot of vignettes that all make sense. This 'Toy Story 4' -- we've only been through it once, there will be several more [times going through it]. But it is so emotional, it's so funny, it's so big, the idea they've come up with. I'm startled. 'Toy Story 3' I thought was amazing. This, I couldn't even get through the last scene, OK? I would love to a be a Washington leaker. I just can't do it. I can't give any more away. They've got great characters. A couple of the scenes toward the end are really hard to get through."
Wow. There was never a second when we weren't planning to see the fourth "Toy Story" movie, but now we're fully hyped. It'll probably take our tear ducts to infinity and beyond, but ... we'll try to be ready.
"Toy Story 4" is scheduled for release in theaters next June 21, 2019, nine years after the previous movie "Toy Story 3" in 2010, and 20 years since "Toy Story 2" in 1999. The first "Toy Story" movie -- led by Tim Allen and Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) came out in 1995.
