Toy Story 4‘s major delay to 2019 was due to Pixar cutting “most” of the script, according to actress Annie Potts, voice of Bo Peep.

The movie was originally planned for a summer 2017 release, before getting pushed back to summer 2018. In an interview with Radio Times Potts confirmed that Pixar “threw out” most of the script for Toy Story 4, causing the release date to be pushed back yet again. This time, forcing Incredibles 2 to move up to summer 2018 to give Toy Story 4 the summer 2019 spot.

“[Toy Story 4] was supposed to come out this year and then they threw out three-quarters of it and rewrote,” said Potts.

“Usually, it takes – from start to finish – two years. But because they threw most of it in the bin and started over [my time on the project has] been extended a little bit. I’ve done a lot of work on it.”

Toy Story 4 was delayed due to significant script revision.

While script overhauls and movie delays are not uncommon for Pixar, Toy Story 4 has undergone quite a bit of developmental turbulence. Just last year the movie’s writers, Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, left the project due to creative differences. However, with an extra year to get the movie finished, Pixar has been hard at work to make Toy Story 4 the best it can be.

Toy Story 4 revolves around the relationship between Woody (Tom Hanks) and Bo Peep (Annie Potts). In the movie Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and Woody set out on a quest to find Bo Peep, who was sold at a yard sale by Andy’s mother sometime between the events of Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3.

Toy Story 4 is scheduled for release on June 21, 2019.
