During the Pixar Animation Studios panel at the D23 Expo 2015, John Lasseter was joined on stage by several award-winning artists and filmmakers, including Pete Docter (“Inside Out,” “Up”), Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo,” “WALL·E”), Lee Unkrich (“Coco,” “Toy Story 3”), Josh Cooley (“Cars 2,” “Ratatouille”) and Galyn Susman (“Toy Story 4,” ABC’s “Toy Story OF TERROR!”).

Writers Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (“Celeste & Jesse Forever”), who are part of the “Toy Story 4” team, joined the group on stage, though details of Buzz and Woody’s return to the big screen were mysteriously missing.

Oscar-winning songwriter and longtime Pixar collaborator Randy Newman played “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” joined by characters, much to the delight of the Disney fan audience.
