Forky, Ducky, and Bunny aren’t the only newcomers joining Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang in Toy Story 4. When the fourth installment of the series hits theaters, we’ll also meet a toy voiced by none other than Keanu Reeves.
Up until now, the specific toy Reeves is voicing in Toy Story 4 has remained a bit of a mystery. Thanks to Buzz Lightyear himself though, we’re finally getting a bit of intel as to what we can expect from the John Wick star’s role in the highly anticipated movie.
Tim Allen recently swung by The Tonight Show where he talked a bit about returning to the world of Toy Story.
Though he was careful to not to let any big details slip, Allen shared a quick story about Reeves’ part in the fourth film, revealing that his character is a bit like Buzz.
“Keanu Reeves has got a great part. Actually, a little inside story, even [Reeves] said— gentle, wonderful guy that he is— ‘This sounds too much like Buzz Lightyear,’” Allen told Jimmy Fallon. “His character does have an edge to that. And the guy said, ‘So we calmed him down a little bit.’”
Reeves’ character may be a bit edgy, but Allen also revealed that he’s a rather small toy– smaller than Buzz at least, from the sound of things.

Over the past few weeks, it’s been fun to get a feel for the basic character traits of newcomers like Forky (Tony Hale), Ducky (Jordan Peele), and Bunny (Keegan Michael-Key). With that in mind we’ll be looking forward to finding out more about what kind of toy Reeves voices and how he fits into the fold of things.
Toy Story 4 hits theaters June 21, 2019.
