Bo Peep Returns After 20 Long Years
It’s been twenty years since fans have seen Bo Peep, which is far too long for many fans. But word on the street is that Bo Peep is going to be in Toy Story 4. So here’s hoping the fourth installation doesn’t make us cry as much as the third one did.
Her Last Appearance
Her last appearance was back in Toy Story 2, which released back in 1999. So saying it’s been twenty years since we saw her is not an exaggeration. She was notably absent during Toy Story 3—though her name did come up. The toys mentioned something about how she didn’t make it through the last yard sale. Meaning that some other child (or collector) had picked her up. It also means that she was separated from her love, Woody, and all of her friends.
Bo Peep had originally been portrayed as a sweet and mostly mild-mannered toy. She was also very clearly not one of Andy’s favorite toys—as evidenced by her place higher up on the shelves. Still, she seemed content with the life she had.
The Bo Peep we’ve seen in the Toy Story 4 trailer is nothing like her past self. She’s abandoned the floofy dress, and seems to have truly adapted to living on the road. More than adapted, actually: she seems thrilled to be able to control her own destiny. Which raises an interesting question—did Bo Peep get sold at the yard sale, as we all assumed? Or did she use it as an opportunity to escape and make a life for herself?
Toy Story 4
Toy Story 4 is going to be hitting theaters on June 21st, 2019. So we only have a few more months to wait before we get the answers to all of our questions. Along with Bo Beep, many of the series favorites will be returning as well. Including Buzz and Woody, obviously. And hopefully many more.
