WE CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS MOVIE!!
After being left out of Toy Story 3, Bo Peep will have a major role in Toy Story 4(she’s even got the action-ready poster to prove it). “I have a big part, I’m thrilled,” actress Annie Potts, who voices Bo Peep, said last year. “Most of (my work) is with [Tom Hanks]. I’ve never done any animation before where you got to work with the other actors… But because of the nature of what we’re doing, we’ve been having Tom and me together. That’s fun! That is really fun!” Naturally, because Potts and Hanks (good name for a detective agency) spent so much time recording together, Bo Peep and Woody are front-and-center in the clip from Toy Story 4 that premiered on Friday’s Good Morning America.
In the sneak peek below, Bo directs her sheep, Billy, Goat, and Gruff (“They have names?” “You never asked”), along with Jessie, Slinky, Barbies, and Buzz, to assist in a rescue mission. (Some weird Bulbasaur-looking toy is involved, too.) It’s a big change from how the character is usually presented, as Woody’s flirty romantic interest, or in the words of Potts, “Bo’s got some ‘tude now.”
