Speaking on the latest episode of "The Graham Norton Show" alongside guests Peter Capaldi and David Walliams, Hanks, who voices the main character Woody, says the highly-anticipated Pixar film will be released in 2018.

Disney announced plans for Toy Story 4 in November 2014, after Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich originally said there were no plans for a sequel.

Toy Story 4 will not be a continuation of Toy Story 3, but rather a standalone sequel.

The story will focus on a romance between Woody and Bo Peep.

As Bo Peep was absent from the third film, Woody and Buzz Lightyear will try to find her and bring her back.

According to the film's IMDb page, Allen and Joan Cusack, who voice Buzz Lightyear and Jessie, will reprise their respective roles in the film.

John Lasseter, who directed the first two Toy Story films, will return to direct the fourth film.

The screenplay is written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack based on a story by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, all of whom have written or directed all or some the first three Toy Story films.

On the show, Hanks also discusses what it's like when he meets children who don't know he is the voice behind Woody and their parents who do, as well as the time he told off a Disney lawyer.
