The 59-year-old actor, who lends his voice to the character of Sheriff Woody, hinted that he, along with the team behind the movie, has started recording for the fourth instalment of the film, reports aceshowbiz.com.
While stopping by “The Graham Norton Show” in Britain, Hanks said: “We’re now recording ‘Toy Story 4’.”
He also said that the movie was expected to be ready in 2018. “I have a recording session on December 2.”
Hanks shared some difficulties he faced during recordings for previous “Toy Story” films.
According to him, voicing Woody needed extra energy and made him put some ice on his diaphragm in order to make it relax again.
The upcoming animated movie will reportedly see Woody and Buzz (voiced by Tim Allen) going out to find Bo, who was missing in “Toy Story 3”, and bring her back.
“Toy Story 4” is also expected to bring back Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head and Annie Potts as Bo.
Directed by John Lasseter, “Toy Story 4” will release in the US on June 15, 2018.
