Tom Hanks: Upcoming Toy Story 4 is as profound as the previous ones
The actor said that the Toy Story films accomplish what timeless classics aim for
Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks says that the upcoming film, Toy Story 4, is as profound as the previous instalments of the popular kids franchise. The previous Toy Story films have been successful in teaching us important life lessons including friendship love and resilience.
"The Toy Story films accomplish what timeless classics aim for," Hanks, who has voiced the character of Woody in the franchise for 24 years, said in a statement.
"They are full of innocent characters who face an endless trail of adventures. We all know the likes of Woody, Buzz, Bo Peep, and Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, and we wonder who we would be...if we were toys," he added.
The actor also said that each film in the series has taken Woody to surprising new places.
"We have been through profound examinations of community, of family, of growing older and finding new purpose. And this one ends up being just as profound and new as the previous movies. They're all toys. As long as they don't break, they can live forever," added The Terminal star, in the interview.
Toy Story 4 welcomes both veteran and new voices, including Hanks as Woody, Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear, Annie Potts as Bo Peep, Tony Hale as Forky, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as Ducky and Bunny, Madeleine McGraw as Bonnie, Christina Hendricks as Gabby Gabby, Keanu Reeves as Duke Caboom, Ally Maki as Giggle McDimples and Joan Cusack as Jessie.
Directed by Josh Cooley, the Disney and Pixar animated project will release in India on June 21.
