Tom Hanks Reveals He Couldn't Face The Crew While Filming Toy Story 4 Final Scenes
When Pixar revealed a Toy Story 4 was in the pipeline, we knew it'd have to be a real tear-jerker to compete with the quite frankly traumatising emotional rollercoaster that was Toy Story 3.
However, if what Tom Hank's said has got anything to do with it, the fourth edition in the series is going to be a real heartbreaker.
During an interview on the Chris Evens Breakfast Show, Tom, who voices Woody, revealed he got so emotional while recording the final scenes that he couldn't even face the crew.
"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," he explained.
"When I went in for my last day of recording, I wanted to have my back to them, because usually you're facing [the director] 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.'"
This isn't the first time the cast have opened up about how emotional the new film is, with Tim Allen, who voices Buzz Lightyear, admitting he struggled to get through the final scene.
"I've got to resist getting emotional," he told The Talk. "I don't want to give it away, but this is an incredibly great story. It is 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 towards the end were really hard to get through."
Toy Story 4 is due to hit cinemas on 21st June 2019, so at least we've got a bit of time to emotionally prepare ourselves.
