Pixar’s D23 panel took place in Anaheim last night, and plenty of details were revealed about what’s to come from them over the next few years. First up was Toy Story 4, and it was confirmed that the movie will revolve around the relationship between Woody and Bo Peep.
She didn’t factor into Toy Story 3, so the follow-up is going to see Woody and Buzz Lightyear once again teaming up, this time to try and find her. “As we were looking around we came up with this idea because Bo Peep was not in Toy Story 3, and it actually worked beautifully into this….so Woody and Buzz light-year go out to find Bo Peep and bring her back, and it’s a very special and emotional love story,” says John Lasseter. “But it’s extremely funny too.”
Another Pixar sequel on the way is Finding Dory, a continuation of sorts to the critically acclaimed Finding Nemo. Ellen DeGeneres is returning as the voice of everyone’s favourite forgetful blue tang, and will be joined by now confirmed cast members Ed O’Neill, who lends his voice to Hank, a cantankerous octopus; Ty Burrell, the voice of Bailey, a misguided beluga whale; and Kaitlin Olson, who voices Destiny, a kind-hearted whale shark.
Finding Dory is set to reunite Dory with friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale? It also features the voices of Albert Brooks, Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.
As for The Good Dinosaur, a new trio of T-Rexes were revealed, and they’ll be voiced by oiced by Anna Paquin, Sam Elliott, and A.J. Buckley. You can check them out below!
Also revealed were the first details about Coco, a new Pixar movie from director Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3). The movie is described as the celebration of a lifetime, where the discovery of a generations-old mystery leads to a most extraordinary and surprising family reunion.
