Toy Story 4 will be bringing back another popular character from the Oscar-winning film franchise – Bo Peep. Disney•Pixar confirmed Bo Peep’s return with the release of a poster and a super short teaser video featuring Woody, Buzz, and Bo Peep.
Annie Potts provided the voice of Bo Peep in 1995’s Toy Story and 1999’s Toy Story 2, and she returns to bring the character to life in Toy Story 4. Describing the character, Potts said, “She is modern, independent, capable and confident. Bo is written and conceived to be inspiring as she has weathered life’s ups and downs with grace. I aspire to that.”
“Bo’s taken control of her own destiny,” added Toy Story 4 director Josh Cooley. “While Woody was watching Andy grow up, Bo gathered dust until she took it upon herself to head out into the world. And when Woody shows up, they can’t believe that they’ve found each other again.”
Toy Story 4 features the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Joan Cusack, Wallace Shawn, Pixar good luck charm John Ratzenberger, Blake Clark, Don Rickles, and Estelle Harris. The fourth film of the groundbreaking animated film franchise was produced by Jonas Rivera and Mark Nielsen.
Disney’s set a June 21, 2019 theatrical release date.
The Toy Story 4 Plot:
Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. So when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts).
After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.
