The toys will return for a fourth adventure, and will hit theatres sometime in 2017. Disney's John Lasseter also revealed that "It's a love story with Woody and—and this is news—Bo Peep!" As to why they chose to focus on Bo Peep this time around, Lasseter said, "We never got to know her backstory. She wasn’t in 'Toy Story 3 at all, so it really set us up nicely for her to come back. It’s a very special story. It’s very important to me because we’re trying to build Bo Peep into a very strong character.”

4. Coco
