Speaking with Variety in a piece published online an hour ago, Hanks said in part:
He talked further about the challenges and rewards of recording voice work for an animated film.
"Being in the hands of the people at Pixar, it's like getting into the JPL [Jet Propulsion Laboratory]. You're with folks who invented the art form in many, many ways and never seem to rest on their laurels. It's like I've been invited to a great party for a third time.
"We wouldn't be doing this if there wasn't a story where it's like, 'How do you guys come up with this?'"
Hanks also discussed 'TS3' briefly with Empire magazine earlier this week, recounting how the studio showed him a complete story reel of the movie before he signed on. His response: "This is great, let's get to work!"
