“How about that?,” Hanks said. “I actually wanted to go head-to-head with Tim Allen and then they didn’t let Tim Allen do it. I don’t understand that.”
“Lightyear” is a prequel to “Toy Story” and focuses on the character Buzz Lightyear, which Allen voiced in the “Toy Story” franchise. Hanks voiced the character of Woody in those films.
But for “Lightyear,” Pixar decided to go with Chris Evans as the voice of the main character, rather than Allen.
And it’s a different kind of movie without Hanks’ character in it, he said.
“There’s really no Toy Story’s Buzz without Woody,” Allen said.
