Toy Story 4 is closer than ever — and a fan-favorite character is making a return!

Disney/Pixar released a new teaser on Monday announcing the return of Bo Peep, who was last seen in Toy Story 2. The new movie, out in theaters in June 2019, will focus on her story and what she’s been up to in the years since audiences last saw her.

“Bo’s taken control of her own destiny,” said Toy Story 4 director Josh Cooley in a press release. “While Woody was watching Andy grow up, Bo gathered dust until she took it upon herself to head out into the world. And when Woody shows up, they can’t believe that they’ve found each other again.”

Woody and Bo were an item in the first movie, but the toy was left out of the third installment where Andy had grown up and sold her in a yard sale. The teaser for the new movie shows a much different Bo with a practical jumpsuit replacing the delicate dress that she first wore.

Pixar previously introduced a new character in the last teaser — Forky, who looks like a fork with a pair of googly eyes and a pipe cleaner tied around it for arms.

Although much more remains unknown about the fourth installment of the beloved family franchise, the film will see a return of many of the iconic characters that first captivated audiences in 1995.

Tom Hanks returns as the voice of Woody, while Tim AllenJoan CusackBonnie Hunt and Laurie Metcalf reprise their roles of Buzz, Jessie, Dolly and Mrs. Davis, respectively. Randy Newman also returns as the composer of the film. He was nominated for Best Original Song in 1996 for the film’s theme song “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.”
