‘Toy Story 4’ Just Revealed Bo Peep’s Cool New Look
Who’s that girl?! After sitting out the third film in the franchise, Little Bo Peep (Annie Potts) is returning to the screen in Toy Story 4 — this time with a bold new look. The movie’s official Twitter account revealed her makeover in a short teaser on Monday, January 28, and we’re here for it.

The 12-second clip shows the feisty shepherdess vaulting onto the scene using her trusty staff. But instead of the frilly pink-and-white dress she previously wore, she’s rocking a blue jumpsuit cinched at the waist with a pink sash, and instead of a bonnet, she has a big pink bow in her hair.
“Get ready,” the teaser begins. “Bo Peep is back.”
Disney-Pixar also released a poster for Bo’s new look, with the addition of a cool purple cape.
Toy Story4 will see the toys now living with a child named Bonnie. A new member of the group, a “craft-project-turned-toy” named Forky (Tony Hale), has self-esteem issues, which Woody (Tom Hanks) wants to help him overcome. But when unexpected circumstances lead to a reunion between Woody and his old crush, Bo Peep, he faces his own questions about what it means to be a toy.
“Bo’s taken control of her own destiny,” director Josh Cooley said in a statement, according to Entertainment Weekly. “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.”
Bo isn’t the toy Woody remembers, though. “After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior,” Cooley’s statement continued. “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.”
Annie Potts also opened up about her character’s return and bold new attitude, saying in a press release, “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.”
Toy Story 4 is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 21, 2019.
