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 Stories 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 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.
Hanks, who has voiced character of Woody for 24 years, said each film in the series has taken Woody to surprising new places.
"We've 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.
"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. We cannot wait for our favourite characters to return on screen and teach us all that they do once again.
