Keanu Reeves Gets A Role In Toy Story 4 | See Release Date (WATCH Official Teaser Trailer)
The first teaser trailer for the fourth Toy Story film has been released, and it has been revealed that Keanu Reeves has a part in the movie.
Tim Allen, who voices the iconic Buzz Lightyear (“to infinity – and beyond!”), disclosed that Generation X idol, Reeves, whose claims to fame include The Matrix and John Wick franchises, has a mystery role in the sequel.
Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Allen said:
“Keanu… has got a great part. Actually, a little inside story, even [he] said — gentle, wonderful guy that he is — ‘this [line] 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 [indicates toy soldier size] big.”
A new character Forky has been introduced to the Animation film. Forky is a spork which has been turned into a toy as craft project.
The producers Disney/Pixar also released a synopsis:
Everyone’s favourite pull-string cowboy sheriff Woody, along with his best friends Buzz Lightyear and Jessie, are happy taking care of their kid, Bonnie, until a new toy called “Forky” arrives in her room. According to Forky, a spork-turned-craft-project, he’s not a toy at all – and he’d rather skip this big adventure completely, if only they’d let him.
Forky, voiced by Arrested Development’s Tony Hale, makes a brief appearance in the trailer.
Toy Story 4 is directed by Inside Out co-writer Josh Cooley, who has taken over from John Lasseter, Toy Story and Toy Story 2 director, who stepped down in 2017.
The film is due for release on 21 Jun 2019, nine years after Toy Story 3, which remains the fifth highest grossing animated film of all time at the US box office.
