An official Disney calendar release in Russia has provided a brand new look at Toy Story 4.
In the image posted by instagram user mmdisney200, we can clearly see a never before seen image of familiar Toy Story characters in a new pose and environment.
Buzz and Woody are joined by Forky, who we saw in the first trailer for the upcoming sequel. A plastic spork-turned child’s plaything, he is allegedly a new toy who struggles with imposter’s syndrome. He often wonders if he belongs.
Director Josh Cooley explained in a press release why he seems so stressed.
“The world of Toy Story is built upon the idea that everything in the world has a purpose,” said Cooley. “A toy’s purpose is to be there for its child. But what about toys that are made out of other objects? Forky is a toy that Bonnie made out of a disposable spork, so he’s facing a crisis. He wants to fulfill his purpose as a spork, but now has a new toy purpose thrust upon him.”
They are also joined by Bo Peep. It’s unclear how Bo made it to little Bonnie’s house to join the group. Her disappearance from the group has always been a mystery. In Toy Story 3, as Woody and the remaining toys decide what to do now that Andy is going to college. Woody reflects on all the toys they’ve lost along the way. In the first film, Andy’s room is chock full of action. Before they left Andy’s room for good, it was just Buzz, Rex, Slinky, Mr & Mrs. Potato Head, Jessie, Bullseye and the Aliens who remained. Bo is mentioned as one of the lost toys. They all pause with great sadness, as she was famously Woody’s love interest. Now, she seems to have shed her larger dress for a cuter look. She still has her sheperd’s staff in towe. Whether she is a different Peep, or the one we knew is yet to be determined.
The image shows the four characters running through a fair. We saw the same fair in another trailer Disney released, which features Key and Peele as two stuffed animals making fun of Woody and Buzz.

The Russian calendar translation is also provided on the instagram of mmdisney200,
“Toy Story 4 😍
Since Andy went to college, toys have moved to a new house where a small girl named Bonnie lives. Her first day in kindergarten will put a beginning to adventures and meeting new toys, some of the old friends an even a romantic story.
From a calendar given to people in Russia.”
The romantic story is most likely centered around Woody and this new Bo Peep.
Cooley explained the inspiration for the new story in late 2018. “It was the end of Woody’s story with Andy. But just like in life, every ending is a new beginning. Woody now being in a new room, with new toys, and a new kid, was something we have never seen before. The questions of what that would be like became the beginning of an entertaining story worth exploring.”
