A new short film, 'Lamp Life', is all set to roll out as a prequel to 'Toy Story 4', which follows Bo Peep’s (Annie Potts) story. Bo reminisced about what happened to her after she left Andy's house and recounted how she was placed in storage for years, donated, brought at a thrift store and broken accidentally by a child.

The emotional flashback delves deeper into how Bo made a huge choice and left that kid. She and her sheep traveled through the rain and cover of night to create a new life at the antique store. While it was chopped off from 'Toy Story 4', it is now being developed into an Original Short.

Release date

The animated short film is all set to release on January 31, 2020, on Disney's new direct-to-consumer streaming service network Disney +.

Plot

'Lamp Life' will showcase Bo as she battles electrical fires and follows her fun-filled adventures through antique stores, snowstorms, frat parties, and more alongside her trusty pals.
