Bo Peep is back!
It’s been eight years since we watched in horror as Buzz, Woody and the gang were carried, hand in hand, towards their fiery doom in Toy Story 3, only to be saved and passed on to owner Bonnie.
We were given our first glimpse of the gang in their new life back in November and on Sunday Football fans tuning into the Super Bowl caught an all-new sneak peek at Toy Story 4.
The new teaser brings Bo Peep back to the franchise for the first time in 20 years, but she won’t be the same toy we remember. The trailer also sheds some light on a couple of the franchise’s newest characters who seem to have a big issue with Buzz Lightyear.
A synopsis of Toy Story 4 from Disney Pixar reads:
“Woody 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.”
Plot details are still few and far between, however, Tim Allen, who voices Buzz, warned fans in an interview on CBS show The Talk that the fourth and final instalment of the franchise will be a tearjerker. Revealing that he struggled to make it through the final scene.
He said: “It is so emotional, it’s so funny, it’s so big, the idea they’ve come up with, I’m startled.
“I couldn’t even get through the last scene. I would love to be a Washington leaker.”
He then added “I just can’t do it. I can’t give any more away.
“They’ve got great characters but a couple of scenes toward the end were really hard to get through.”
Tom Hanks, who voices Woody, described the recording of the last scene in Toy Story 4 as a ‘moment in history’
Speaking on the Radio 2 Breakfast Show, he told Chris Evans:
“The way you record Toy Story, you’re in a room with the team that has created it.
“When I went in for my last day of recording, I wanted to have my back to them, because usually, you’re facing him, so he can look right up and you can talk about it. But I didn’t want to see them and pretend they couldn’t see me.
“When I realised what they were going for, I realised, ‘Oh, this is a moment in history.’”
Toy Story 4 is due in UK cinemas on June 21 2019.
