‘Toy Story 4’: Tim Allen Compares Film To ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Toy Story 4 Avengers Infinity War Tim Allen

Some of the biggest movies that will be hitting theaters in 2019 include Toy Story 4 and Marvel’s highly-anticipated follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War. Both franchises have had their share of surprisingly emotional moments, with Toy Story 3 and Avengers: Infinity War ending on incredibly poignant and bittersweet notes.

For many people, the first three Toy Story films are a top-tier film trilogy. The characters and stories told in Disney and Pixar’s beloved franchise have resonated with audiences since 1995, and while many thought Toy Story 3 was the perfect ending, audiences will be reuniting with the toys in a brand new adventure with Toy Story 4. 

The Toy Story films, particularly the third one reach emotional levels that few films can ever dream of reaching. Given the time gap between the films, many couldn’t help but cry when Andy plays with his toys one last time with young Bonnie. Well, according to Buzz Lightyear himself Tim Allen, Toy Story 4 will reach even deeper levels of emotion. But what makes his comments most interesting was how he compared it to the emotions one may feel when watching Avengers: Infinity War: 

“I gotta resist getting emotional because I don’t wanna give it away, but this is an incredibly great story. If you’re at all a superhero fan, Infinity War didn’t seem like it was going to work and it was a lot of vignettes that all make sense… It is so emotional, so funny it’s so big, the idea that they come up with. I’m startled. 3 I thought was amazing [but] this, I couldn’t even get through the last scene.”

Toy Story 4 is described to be more of a standalone sequel to the original trilogy, and is set to follow Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) as they go on an adventure to find Woody’s old flame, Bo Peep (Annie Potts), who was given away many years prior to the events of the third film. Bo Peep was absent from the previous film.

Directed by Josh Cooley, the film features the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Joan Cusack, Blake Clark, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Estelle Harris, Jodi Benson, Michael Keaton, Jeff Pidgeon, Kristen Schaal, Bonnie Hunt, Timothy Dalton, Jeff Garlin, Laurie Metcalf and Lori Alan.

Toy Story 4 opens in theaters on June 21, 2019.
