Patricia Arquette joins ‘Toy Story 4’ as ‘laid back mom

Patricia Arquette may have one an Oscar, but will now add a Pixar role to her expanding resume of work as the actress has joined the voice cast for Toy Story 4.

TheWrap broke the Toy Story 4 Arquette casting news, stating that Arquette will play “a laid-back mom who’s described as a hippie.”

In addition to stars Tim Allen and Tom Hanks, Toy Story 4 will be returning familiar voices including Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head and Annie Potts as Bo Peep, last seen in 1999’s Toy Story 2, but Arquette is the first new addition to the Toy Story 4 cast.

Arquette won an Oscar for her phenomenal, decade-spanning work in Richard Linklater’s BoyhoodHer other recent work includes a lead role CBS’ CSI: Cyber, which premiered earlier this year, and a recurring role on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. She can be seen next month in the mob movie Wannabe

Pixar president Jim Morris has stated that Toy Story 4 is not a continuation of Toy Story 3, as it won’t focus on the relationship between the toys and their owners. Instead, it’ll be a “love story” or a “romantic comedy” about Woody (Hanks) and Bo Peep.

During this year’s D23 panel, Toy Story 4 director John Lasseter revealed that Woody and Buzz will set out in search of Bo Peep, meeting many new characters along the way.

Toy Story 4 will be one of the few animated films Arquette has been involved with; she recently signed on to voice a character Troll: The Rise of Harry Potter Jr.

Toy Story 4 is scheduled to open June 15, 2018.
