I was invited to Disney Pixar to cover the Toy Story 4 press junket.
Toy Story 4 brings back the beloved character Bo Peep but it is not the Bo Peep we are use to seeing. Check out the evolution of Bo Peep’s new look.
You may remember last month I visited Disney Pixar for the Toy Story 4 press junket in San Francisco. While there we were introduced to one of the new characters “Forky” and I even made a Forky of our very own, well in my case a “Forkette“. New characters were not the only thing on the agenda, we were reunited with a certain porcelain doll we have all come to love, Bo Peep! And in Toy Story 4, my girl Bo Peep has a new look. Check out all the details on Bo Peeps new look but first a trailer for you!
Bo Peep, Bo Peep, Where Have You Been?
Bo Peep, the ceramic desk lamp which came to life along with the other toys, has been noticably missing in the last Toy Story edition. This disappearance has fans questioning her whereabouts, especially considering her and Woody had a lil’ budding romance and a certain kiss under the game shelf many years ago. Within the first few minutes of the new Toy Story 4 film, we find out exactly what happened to Bo Peep and the question of her disappearance comes to light. But that is about all we get until Bo Peep makes her debut as a “lost toy”, a strong independent lost toy that don’t need no owner!
Bo Peep’s New Look
Bo Peep has been out in the world, she has seen some things, she has gone through some things and she is a different Peep since Woody has last saw her. As you would imagine, one can’t live the rough lost toy life donned with a huge petticoated skirt and bonnet. Bo Peep is now “a fierce warrior” and her outfit had to reflect this change while still preserving her “poise and grace”. They had many ideas on how to covert the traditional Bo Peep outfit into not only a new look but one that would be useful out in the “real world”. And now only did Bo Peeps outfit change but she was bound to acquire some chips & cracks in her porcelain from all the years of hard living.
Annie Potts is Back As Bo Peep
Annie Potts is back to voice Bo Peep and when she got back in the recording booth, it was like old times! Even Director Josh Cooley stated, “Annie not only brings emotion to Bo, she completely fleshes out that character. She’s heartwarming and funny, and Annie has a natural sarcasm that’s just perfect.” And the chemistry between her and Tom (Hanks) is not only seen on screen but they are naturals togethers in the recording booth!

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.
