Screenwriters Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (“Celeste & Jesse Forever”) joined Buzz, Woody and Bo Peep for the celebration. "I’m very proud of our films,” said Lasseter.
“When we made the first three TOY STORY films, we didn’t realize what we had done was to change the genre of each of the films’ story.
For TOY STORY 4, we are doing a type of story we have not done before: a love story.
It’s a story about a relationship between Woody and Bo Peep. "
