Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks was at the London premiere of "Toy Story 4" on Sunday, in which the actor returns to voice the role of toy cowboy Woody. Director Josh Cooley said the decision had been made to make the Disney and Pixar animation "more of a representation" of the world we live in. ACTOR, TOM HANKS said "Well I think any movie, even if it’s like an animated film about cartoons has to, has to reflect the world that we live in at any given time. I mean we do live in more diversified place there's more, there is more people of colours, there is more, the definition of what a family is going through all sorts of not redefinition's but reclarifications about what love between people who decide to make a family together there..."
DIRECTOR, JOSH COOLEY said "You know we want these films to be about, for everybody and every family looks different and we just decided lets, lets mix it up, let's make it more of a representation of our world."
Also starring in the film is actor Tim Allen, who voices "Buzz Lightyear", Keanu Reeves who voices new character "Duke Caboom" and Christina Hendricks who voices "Gabby Gabby". Toy Story 4 is set for release in the US on June 21.
