Talking about what fans can expect in the long-awaited fourth instalment, Tim Allen told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, "New guys are in it. Keanu Reeves has got a great part in it. Inside story, even the fun, gentle guy that he is, even he said, 'This sounds too much like Buzz Lightyear'.

"And his character does have an edge to that."

While fans of the acclaimed franchise will have to wait a bit longer to find out details of Reeves's character, the thought alone has us frothing at the mouth for what will officially be the last Toy Story movie.

Allen, who is most known for voicing Buzz Lightyear, even admitted that the cast were in tears recording the final scenes of the movie. 

"It is so emotional, it's so funny, it's so big, the idea they've come up with, I'm startled.

"I couldn't even get through the last scene. I would love to be a Washington leaker."

However, Allen was in no mood to be the person leaking the juicy details. "I just can't do it. I can't give any more away.

"They've got great characters but a couple of scenes toward the end were really hard to get through."

Co-star Tom Hanks, who voices good guy cowboy Woody, went as far as saying that the last recording was a 'moment in history'.

Speaking to BBC Radio 2's Chris Evans, he said,

"The way you record Toy Story, you're in a room with the team that has created it.

"When I went in for my last day of recording, I wanted to have my back to them, because usually, you're facing him, so he can look right up and you can talk about it. But I didn't want to see them and pretend they couldn't see me.

"When I realised what they were going for, I realised, 'Oh, this is a moment in history'."

The fourth and final film in the Toy Story universe is expected to hit cinemas on 21 June, and as you can probably imagine, a tearjerking end to Andy's relationship with his childhood toys is to be expected. 

Forget popcorn. If there's one thing you'll need watching this movie, it's tissues. And lots of em'.
