Lamp Life is an animated short film released on January 31, 2020, on Disney's new direct-to-consumer streaming service network Disney+.



Bo originally went into great detail about what happened to her after she left Andy's house in a flashback. We saw her given to a new family, placed in storage for years, donated, brought at a thrift store, given as a white elephant gift, and then broken accidentally by a child. Bo then 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. Although emotional, the flashback was ultimately cut from Toy Story 4 and was then evolved into Lamp Life.

The deleted scene is different from Lamp Life in multiple ways:

  • Bo Peep was never in storage in the final product
  • Bo Peep was sold for free, not at a thrift store
  • Bo Peep's broken arm was unexplained
  • She became a lost toy after the antique store incident


  • Duke Caboom, Ducky, and Bunny are the only characters not seen with Woody, Bo, Giggle, and Billy, Goat, and Gruff. Not counting Duke's cameo in the flashback.
  • At Bo's second owners' house, a Bitey White and a toy car resembling Miguel Camino can be seen next to the lamp.
  • A Luxo Ball appears on the nightstand after Bo's lamp is put on the shelf.
  • Bo's second owners replace her with a red Luxo Jr.
  • Red from Red's Dream is among the items donated alongside Bo's lamp.
  • At one point, the lamp ends up on a windowsill next to the Tank Gang's tiki heads.
  • Bo's owner in the tent is writing about a "mysterious door" he discovered, accompanied by a drawing of the door to the Himalayas from Monsters, Inc.
  • Poultry Palace cups and Chinese Food Boxes surround Bo's lamp in the college dorm room and the dumpster.
  • Despite being ownerless, Woody still has "Bonnie" written on the bottom of his right boot, further indicating that the film takes place after Toy Story 4.
  • This is the first film of some sort to not have Tom Hanks play Woody, also being the first film role with Jim Hanks as Woody instead.
