Jessie from "Toy Story 3" is one of the characters in the Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar animated film.

Jessie ("Toy Story 3") is an exuberant, rough-and-tumble cowgirl doll who's always up for a daring adventure to save critters in need. With Andy's imminent departure hanging over the toys, Jessie is afraid of being abandoned by her owner once again. She takes charge, insisting that the toys take control of their own destinies. But is it a decision they'll later regret?

Joan Cusack, who returns as the voice of the energetic cowgirl, is a fan of the character. "Jessie is such a good role model," she says. "She believes that children are important and approaches them with pride and passion. And she believes girls can do anything! Which of course she is right! She has exuberance for life and has a can-do attitude. She is also not afraid of feeling things and learning from her feelings. Jessie is pretty cool. It is such a treat to be back with the Pixar people, because you know it is going to be quality work and, best of all, really fun."

"Jessie is one of my favourite 'Toy Story' characters because she brings such a strong female presence to the films," says producer Anderson. "She has a big heart, but can keep up with Woody and Buzz and isn't afraid to speak her mind. There's a key scene in 'Toy Story 3' in which Jessie rides up on Bullseye and saves the day, and it was important to me to make sure she had that moment in the film. Not only is it a dynamic way to reintroduce Jessie, but it's a fun twist and unexpected.
"In both 'Toy Story 2' and 'Toy Story 3,'" Anderson continues, "Joan Cusack is so instrumental in making Jessie the tenacious and spirited character that she is. Her voice is powerful, yet she also brings a softness, kindness and of course phenomenal comedic chops."
