Even though Toy Story 4 was set to be the finale Toy Story film, Pixar still has a few more ideas for Woody and friends. As with every Toy Story entry, numerous shorts and specials have premiered throughout the series’ lifespan and this continues with the forth film. The Disney+ series Forky Asks A Question has been quite popular as spin-off material, but now Pixar has added to that with an upcoming Bo Peep short and Disney+ exclusive known as Lamp Life. Disney just released the first trailer for the short film today.
Lamp Life takes place before Toy Story 4 and is a recollection of what happened to Bo Peep after she left Andy and his toys behind. As Bo Peep tells Woody and the other carnival toys, “Life on a baby lamp isn’t that exciting.” From here, we get a montage of a few crazy scenarios she experienced throughout the year, including catching fire, getting attacked by random animals and being in various set pieces like a club and eventually the antique store seen in Toy Story 4. Bo then jokes that her life on a baby’s shelf might actually have been “too exciting”.
Like most the best of Pixar shorts, Lamp Life looks to be a rather enjoyable story featuring some fan favorite Toy Story characters. Considering that Bo Peep was one of the most praised elements of Toy Story 4, fans will most likely appreciate the inclusion of more backstory following her tenure as Andy’s toy.
Lamp Life is set for release on Disney Plus on January 31st, 2020. Watch the full trailer below.
