Bo Peep (voiced by veteran television actress Annie Potts) was conspicuously absent from Toy Story 3, much to the confusion of fans around the globe. Now she's back––and with a whole new look.
Anyone who's watched the first three Toy Story films knows that Woody (Tom Hanks) and Bo Peep were as romantically involved as toys can be. Theories seeking to explain Bo Peep's absence from Toy Story 3 ranged from sad (Bo Peep was likely sold during a yard sale) to realistic (the production team behind the film simply chose not to rehire Annie Potts).
We've never received an official explanation why Bo Peep was gone, but she's back in the long awaited fourth installment of Pixar's hit series, and judging from her new outfit, she's seen some things, man.
She's... actually quite badass.

Animator Josh Cooley, who directed the film, has pretty bittersweet feelings about this whole thing.
"When the film is done, I'm really going to miss working with Annie Potts. Her performance has brought Bo back in a commanding way that only she can do," he wrote.
