The Toy Story 4 teaser trailer has landed, and we’re already emotional

Tim Allen and Tom Hanks have promised that Toy Story 4 is such a tearjerker that even they couldn’t get through the entire film without crying. Now, thanks to an emotionally-charged teaser, Disney fans have been given their first look at the film.

Toy Story 3 had audiences in floods of tears, so it stands to reason that the fourth film in the franchise – written by Stephany Folsom – is going to be an emotional rollercoaster, too.

The official synopsis for the Disney film reads: “Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called ‘Forky’ to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy.”

So far, so rosy. However, with rumours the film will include a search for Annie Potts’ Bo Peep, we have a feeling that things aren’t going to remain as happy as they appear. Indeed, in an interview with The Talk (via MovieWeb), which he appeared on to promote the latest season of Last Man Standing, Buzz Lightyear star Tim Allen revealed that Toy Story 4 packed such an emotional wallop that he couldn’t get through the entire movie without breaking down.

“Yes, I gotta resist getting emotional,” he said. “I don’t want to give it away, but this is an incredibly great story. 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. 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.”

And Tom Hanks – who voices the iconic Woody the Cowboy – echoed these sentiments during his recent appearance on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show, admitting he couldn’t look anyone in the eye when it came to filming the final scenes.

“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 you can look right up and you can talk about it. But I didn’t want to see them and I wanted to pretend they couldn’t see me.”

He added: “When I realised what they were going for, I realised, ‘Oh, this is a moment in history.’”
