Tim Allen has teased a huge addition to the Toy Story 4 cast.

The voice of Buzz Lightyear stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and revealed that John Wick and The Matrix actor Keanu Reeves voices a character.

“Keanu Reeves has got a great part,” Allen said.

“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.”

After gesturing that Reeves’s part would be very small, Allen went on to reiterate Woody voice actor Tom Hanks’s sentiment that the upcoming sequel would be very emotional, likening the final scene to Gone With the Wind.

“Hanks said it best — of course he always says stuff best — but the last scene of the movie I couldn’t even get through it,” he said. ”I thought there were pages after it. I read it and I had to turn around from reading it in the studio, it was so emotional. It’s a ‘Scarlett, I don’t give a damn moment.’”

Multiple new characters have already been unveiled to join the movie, but all already have actors attached, including Forky, who will be voiced by Tony Hale. The character was first revealed in the teaser trailer for Toy Story 4. The film opens in cinemas on 21 June 2019.
