An intriguing piece of the "Toy Story 4" puzzle was just revealed during Disney's D23 Expo. John Lasseter confirmed that the movie will follow a romance for Tom Hanks' Woody, adding to CNBC:

It's a love story with Woody and — and this is news — Bo Peep."

Bo Peep, eh? That has some fans asking, "What about Jessie?" But maybe we'll see Jessie with Buzz. (This could easily veer into soap opera territory, but since the movie is ostensibly for kids, hopefully not.)

According to Lasseter, "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." Pixar has a remarkable track record, not just for success but also for quality, so we're cautiously optimistic for "Toy Story 4," even though we would've been OK to see the story end on the strong note of the last movie, which came out in 2010. It's rare for a franchise to produce three great movies, so if they believe they have an equally great fourth in them, we're here for it.

"Toy Story 4" has a release date of June 16, 2017.
