It's been 24 years since the first installment of the toys-come-to-life tale.

The movie has been beloved over the course of generations. With three installments drawing fans of new and older ages, Toy Story is a pillar of entertainment. 

A fourth movie will hit theaters on June 20 with the same characters from two decades ago and a few new friends that have been picked up along the way. One of the biggest surprises is the return of Woody's former fling Bo Peep — who Andy tossed out prior to the start of Toy Story 3 — who's been given a powerful new feminist makeover

Fans could recognize the voices of these iconic characters anywhere but these are the real-life faces that match the animated ones. 

Tom Hanks is Woody. 

The leading cowboy in the Toy Story franchise is played by the Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks. The 62-year-old gained notoriety in his romantic comedy '80s and '90s flicks like Splash, You've Got Mail, and Sleepless in Seattle. Hanks has proven himself a versatile actor, though, and was able to take on dramatic roles like in Castaway, Saving Private Ryan, Forest Gump, and Philadelphia (the latter two films earned him Oscars for Best Actor). 

Of course, his animated character Woody is quite possibly his most beloved by fans of all ages. In the fourth installment of the epic movie series, Woody gets lost in an attempt to save his new owner, Bonnie's, favorite new handmade toy Forky. Along the way, Woody experiences a new life that looks pretty good compared to the one he's known his whole existence. 

Tony Hale is Forky. 

A new friend introduced in Toy Story 4 is Bonnie's handmade spork puppet, Forky. During a crafting experiment, Bonnie creates a googly-eyed spork that comes to life in a Frankenstein-esque way. In one moment of the trailer, Forky reveals he never was meant for the toy life and he'd prefer to go back to what he was meant to do — "I was made for soup, salad, maybe chili, and then the trash." 

Forky is played by Tony Hale who is known for his comedic roles in Arrested Development as Buster Bluth and Gary Walsh in Veep. 

Annie Potts is Bo Peep.

Woody's love interest Bo Peep was missing in the previous Toy Story film. At the beginning of the latest movie when the toys come down from the attic they reveal that they've "lost friends along the way," and Bo was one of them. 

In the first two films, Bo Peep primarily tended to her sheep and flirted with Woody whenever there was a free moment, but now her character has been given a fierce and independent new makeover. She has ditched her petticoat and uses her sheep's staff as a tool instead of an accessory. 

The 66-year-old Potts will reprise her role as the new-and-improved Bo. Potts starred in '80s blockbusters Ghostbusters and Pretty in Pink. 

John Ratzenberger is Hamm. 

John Ratzenberger plays the pessimistic pig Hamm who often loses his coins during the crews' adventures. Ratzenberger has voiced main characters in other Pixar films such as The Incredibles and Cars where he played the Underminer and Mack respectively. 

The 72-year-old also played Cliff in the sitcom Cheers for which he earned two Emmy nominations. He also is the only actor to have a role in every Pixar film ever made, he's appeared in classics like Wall-E, Monsters Inc., and many, many more. 

Tim Allen is Buzz Lightyear.

Beloved favorite TV dad, Tim Allen, voices the iconic role of Buzz Lightyear. Allen had the opportunity to provide a voice to one of the greatest lines in cinematic history, "To Infinity and Beyond." Of course, Allen has also played other iconic roles like Scott Calvin in The Santa Clause and Tim Taylor in the '90s sitcom Home Improvement. 

The always faithful sidekick, it appears Buzz tags along with Woody when the adventurous cowboy jumps from the family RV to go save Bonnie's new toy Forky. The dynamic duo explores a carnival and Buzz takes flight straight into an amusement park ride. 

Wallace Shawn is Rex.

The nervous Tyrannosaurus Rex is voiced by the iconic Wallace Shawn. After his role in the cult classic film The Princess Bride, Shawn skyrocketed to fame. He is one of the most recognizable voice actors and has made a name for himself in television and film. He's appeared in multiple other Pixar films like The Incredibles. 

Rex was given the opportunity to meet another dinosaur, Trixie, in Bonnie's toys in Toy Story 3, and the two hit it off immediately. In the upcoming film, surely, the dinosaurs will share more moments together.  

Joan Cusack is Jessie. 

Jessie was first introduced in Toy Story 2 as a forgotten cowgirl that befriends Woody. In Toy Story 3 her relationship with Buzz was taken to the next level, so fans will be able to see more of the duo's romance. Actress Joan Cusack rose to fame during the same era as Hanks and Allen. She was nominated for two Oscars as the Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Working Girl and In & Out.

Keanu Reeves is Duke Caboom. 

Another new friend introduced is the power poser Duke Caboom, played by Keanu Reeves (The Matrix, Speed, Point Break). He rides in on his motorcycle and strikes multiple poses in front of Woody and Bo. In a similar way that Buzz denounced his toy status in the first movie, Duke seems oblivious to who he really is and truly thinks he's a daredevil adrenaline-seeking motorcyclist.

Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key are Bunny and Ducky. 

The comedy superstar duo joins forces once again as the plush animals in the upcoming Toy Story flick. Bunny and Ducky are carnival prizes that hop along with Woody, Bo, and the gang in their attempt to rescue Forky. In one hilarious moment, the stuffed toys watch a cat rip apart one of their own and are horrified at the fluff seen inside. 

The comedians worked together on a series called Key & Peele in which they performed comedy sketches and skits. Peele has since ventured into the opposite world of horror, as he directed the well-received films Get Out and Us. Meanwhile, Key has also taken a comedy detour and done work in theatre productions in New York City. 

Blake Clark is Slinky Dog. 

The stretchy pooch was originally played by Jim Varney who died in 2000. Clark took over the role of the plastic pet in Toy Story 3 when the gang ventured out of Andy's life and into the daycare. One of Andy's original toys, Slinky Dog, is often along for the ride and uses his handy stretching abilities to help out whenever necessary. 

Clark is most well known for his role in various Happy Madison productions with Adam Sandler like 50 First Dates, Little Nicky, I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry, and Grown-Ups. 

Christina Hendricks is Gabby Gabby.

The frightening new villains in the upcoming movie are Gabby Gabby and her ventriloquist dummy sidekick, Vincent. In one horrifying moment, the glass doll abruptly sits upright in her carriage looking like the horror flick Annabelle. Gabby Gabby has been living in the antique shop that Woody finds Bo Peep in. 

The creepy doll is voiced by Mad Men star Christina Hendricks. 

Don Rickles and Estelle Harris are Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. 

Reprising their roles as the lovable and crabby married potato couple are Estelle Harris and Don Rickles. The 91-year-old actress is most known for her part in the sitcom Seinfeld or Disney Channel fans will remember her as Muriel in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. 

Rickles got his start in the Golden Era of Hollywood and starred in classics like Run Silent Run Deep, Bikini Beach, and Enter Laughing. The comedian and voice of Mr. Potato Head actually died in 2017 at 90 years old but his voice will be featured in the fourth movie using pre-recorded archival sound. 

Kristen Schaal, Jeff Garlin, Timothy Dalton, and Bonnie Hunt are Trixie, Buttercup, Mr. Pricklepants, and Dolly. 

Bonnie's toys were introduced in Toy Story 3 when Andy decided to donate his toys after he went to college at the end of the previous movie. In a heartfelt moment, Andy and Bonnie played with the gang one last time and included these new members. 

Comedian Kristen Schaal voices the triceratops, Trixie. Former James Bond actor Timothy Dalton voices the fancy hedgehog. Daddy Daycare star Jeff Garlin voices the unicorn Buttercup. Bonnie Hunt from Cheaper By The Dozen voices the easygoing Dolly.
