Tim Allen has been teasing Toy Story 4 and fans should prepare themselves - it's going to every bit the emotional rollercoaster you're expecting.

If you thought things couldn't get even more heart-wrenching than 2010 sequel Toy Story 3, think again: the Buzz Lightyear voice star has confirmed that the final scene is so sad he could barely speak during it.

“It is so emotional, it’s so funny, it’s so big, the idea they’ve come up with, I’m startled,” he said speaking on US show The Talk. “I couldn’t even get through the last scene. I would love to be a Washington leaker.”

He later elaborated: “They’ve got great characters but a couple of scenes toward the end were really hard to get through.”

Best bring those tissues then.

The fourth instalment in the Pixar franchise comes more than two decades after the original. Earlier this year, the film's first footage was shown at CineEurope in Barcelona, a conference for cinema exhibitors, featuring characters Woody, Buzz and Bo Peep.

Toy Story 4 is set to be released in cinemas 21 June 2019. Josh Cooley will direct from a script written by Wil McCormack and Stephany Folsom.

The film will arrive after nearly a nine-year gap since Toy Story 3, and more than two decades after the original, which was released in 1995.
