Back in May, the Disney Parks Blog announced that six new Enchanted Windows would be added to Main Street, USA at Disneyland, as part of the park’s 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration. Elaborate, moving displays, showcasing popular animated films in the windows of the Emporium, have been a long-standing tradition, and the latest additions were set to include Peter Pan, Cinderella, The Princess and the Frog, Frozen, Aladdin, and Toy Story. Several of the windows have been in place for a while, but just yesterday, the new Toy Story window was unveiled! Although I haven’t seen it in person, I was able to find a fantastic video of it, as well as a few photos.
Ever since the Toy Story 4 announcements at the D23 Expo this past August, my excitement has been tempered with a little bit of fear. What could possibly scare me about Toy Story? Well, it’s the fact that in everything I’ve heard about the plot of the movie, only Woody and Buzz Lightyear are mentioned as going on the quest to find Bo Peep.

Pixar’s President, Jim Morris, was in Australia yesterday for a presentation of the studio’s upcoming slate of films.

I felt the need to write this post for myself as much as for the other Toy Story fans out there. There have been so many unfounded rumors going around lately about Toy Story 4, that I often end up searching through past articles and interviews for a reminder of what we truly know about the movie to date. I thought it would be helpful to have all the relevant quotes – from reputable, official sources – saved in one spot for future reference. So, grab a cup of coffee (or whatever your choice may be), get comfy, and travel back with me through the past ten months to review what the Toy Story 4 cast and crew have given us – there’s more than you might think!
