Re-Creating Bo Peep for Toy Story 4: A Journey Alongside Team Bo
In Toy Story 4, audiences rediscover Bo Peep, who returns after nearly 20 years away from the big screen. In adapting her design, we considered not only the cultural context of reviving one of our industry’s first female characters, informing our story and design, but also the technology now available.
This talk describes Bo Peep’s journey through production: from initial research into decades-old reference and visualization, to the modern results and strides we’ve taken across both creative and technical specialties.
