"At Pixar and at Disney, we only make sequels if we come up with a story that’s as good or better than the original. That’s our rule. We don’t do things just to print money,”  Lasseter added.

Bo Peep and Woody have always been a fan-favourite pairing and the two showed ample amounts of chemistry in the first Toy Story movie back in 1995. But some had feared their love was never going to be as Bo Peep didn't appear in 2010’s Toy Story 3.

The franchise was confirmed as returning for a fourth instalment back in November when Pixar announced that Woody and Buzz would be back along with Lasseter who directed the first two movies.
