Keanu Reeves is part of Toy Story 4.
Tim Allen AKA Buzz Lightyear has revealed that Reeves has a role in the upcoming fourth installment of the hugely successful franchise. Allen shared the tidbit on the newcomer to the toy box Wednesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Despite the reveal, Allen didn’t say much else about the character or the plot, saying, “it is so good… it is so deep and moving, and wonderful plot, [but] I can’t give anything away.”
“They really will surprise you with the toys they came up with,” Allen said. “Characters came back, new guys in it that are great. Keanu Reeves has got a great part.”
Then he continued: “Actually, a little inside story: Even he [Revves] 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.”
Pixar dropped the first teaser trailer for Toy Story 4 last week, which kicked the fans’ anticipation into high gear. The trailer introduced a new toy, Forky, a spork turned craft project turned toy voiced by Tony Hale.
Toy Story 4 will hit theaters on June 21, 2019.
