Chatting on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Tim Allen, who plays intergalactic toy Buzz Lightyear, revealed the news, saying, “They really will surprise you with the toys they came up with. Characters came back, new guys in it that are great. Keanu Reeves has got a great part.”

Allen wasn’t particularly forthcoming but he said Reeves’ character is one with a strong personality. He said,  “Actually, a little inside story: even he said — gentle, wonderful guy that he is — ‘this sounds too much like Buzz Lightyear.’ And his character does have an edge to that. And the guy said, ‘So we calmed him down a little bit,’ and they reminded me his toy is only that big.”
