The first trailer released earlier this month for the upcoming Toy Story 4 showed us much of the old gang back together again, along with one unexpected new face, but Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the core team may not be the only familiar figures to make an appearance in the sequel to 2010’s Toy Story 3.
Tim Allen was a recent guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where the Buzz Lightyear actor teased what the future holds for the saga’s fourth installment:
“They really will surprise you with the toys they come up with, characters came back.”
Though it was never really in doubt that next year’s release would see the return of some of the franchise’s long-established players, we also know that Allen isn’t just referring to the main cast of the last movie, with Annie Potts set to reprise her role as Bo Peep after sitting out the third film. And with another road trip set to be on the cards, there’s no telling what further reunions could be in store for our heroes in this next entry.
Of course, you can also expect Toy Story 4 to bring plenty of new additions to the series, with Allen letting it slip in this same Fallon appearance that Keanu Reeves has “a great part” in the feature. Beyond that, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are pairing up once more to play two cuddly carnival prizes named Ducky and Bunny. And then, of course, there’s Tony Hale as Forky, the aforementioned character who shows up in the first teaser to cause some commotion.
We’ll find out what problem brings together all these faces old and new when Toy Story 4 hits theaters on June 21st, 2019.
