We need Nerf. A lot of nerf.

Tim Allen has revealed that Keanu Reeves plays a role in Toy Story 4, but we do not know much about it, aside from the fact that originally he was very similar to Buzz Lightyear.
Speaking on The Tonight Show, the Buzz Lightyear actor said that Pixar "will surprise you with the toys they came up with, the characters came back, the new guys are great, Keanu Reeves has a big part."
"Actually, a little inside story. [Reeves] He said, kind, wonderful guy that is, "This is too much like Buzz Lightyear." And his character has an advantage in that. And the man said: "So we calmed him down a bit."
It is unclear exactly who the actors of The Matrix and John Wick will play, but Allen indicated that he would play a particularly small toy, the size of the toy soldiers that were already in the film.
Reeves is not the first surprise star of the cast. Tony Hale was revealed as Forky in the first teaser of the film, before a second trailer showed the Key & Peele comedians as Ducky & Bunny.
There is plenty of time for more surprises: Toy Story 4 will be released on June 21, 2019.
