Tom Hanks Got Emotional Recording ‘Toy Story 4’
A little over a month ago, Buzz Lightyear voice actor Tim Allen teased an emotional Toy Story 4. Now his co-star and Woody voice Tom Hanks is saying the same.
The Oscar-winning actor appeared on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC, where he talked about the unexpected difficulties of recording his final lines as Woody. When it came time to record the film’s ending, Hanks found himself unable to look at everyone else in the room:
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 you can look right up and you can talk about it. But I didn’t want to see them and I wanted to pretend they couldn’t see me. When I realized what they were going for, I realized, ‘Oh, this is a moment in history.
