London, (ANI): Tom Hanks has revealed that Toy Story 2
nearly didn't make it into cinemas. The Oscar-winning actor said
that Disney had originally planned to send the sequel to 1995 hit
Toy Story straight to DVD, and that it only reached the big screen
after pressure from himself and Tim Allen.
Hanks and Allen had voiced the lead characters Woody and Buzz
Lightyear in the movie, reports The Daily Star. Hanks insists that
they helped open the doors for further Toy Story instalments.
“Tim and I and everybody else connected with it wanted to know
why. We said it should be released as a film because it was
magnificent and as good as the first one," Hanks told The Daily
“Usually sequels are pale imitations and are slapped on video
but this was really great. Eventually they bowed to some brand of
common sense so now we have a Toy Story 3 and will there be a
fourth Toy Story. Why not," Hanks said.
