Tom Hanks, voice of Woody, struggled to record the final scene from the upcoming Toy Story 4, a series known for it’s heart. He describes that scene as a “moment in history”.
Speaking on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show, the actor said the following:
“It was the first time that we were going to be recording the end of the movie, and Toy Story  is going to have an impactful ending. 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’.”
Tim Allen, who voices Buzz Lightyear previously spoke about his own struggles getting through this mysterious last scene. Speaking on The Talk in September, Allen said the following:
“I gotta resist getting emotional. 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.”
Toy Story 4 hits the theatres on June 21.
