Last year's Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actress, Patricia Arquette, is keeping with the whole childhood / boyhood thing as she boards Pixar's Toy Story 4.

Arquette is set to join old familiars like Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, who are returning as Woody and Buzz respectively. The story this time around's a little bit of an odd one. Pixar's Jim Morris has described the film as "a romantic comedy" that sees a relationship bloom between Woody and Bo-Peep, voiced by Annie Potts.

You're thinking you know that name from somewhere, don't you? She was the receptionist in Ghostbusters and she was in Pretty In Pink too.

Anyway, Arquette is set to play a character described as a "hippie mom", so it's clear she's playing a human character rather than one of the toys. Other than that, there's not much else to know about Toy Story 4.

The film's scheduled for a 2018 release so it's way, way off in the distance. What do you think of Arquette joining Toy Story 4? What do you make of a fourth Toy Story?
