As one of the central characters of Disney-Pixar and Toy Story fans the world over have come to love and adore Buzz Lightyear. Now the indomitable Space Ranger is getting his own origin story and movie in the all-action animated film Lightyear.
Watch the brand new trailer for Lightyear below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Lightyear revolves around the origin of Buzz Lightyear, a space ranger that would inspire the action figure that appears in the Toy Story series.
Directed by Angus MacLane (Finding Dory), Lightyear is a science fiction fans dream and appears to be a space-age take of wonder and astonishment as its titular Space Ranger charts a course to conquer the cosmos and to discover who he is in the process.
The animation and storytelling present in Lightyear is extraordinary to look upon and with the placement of David Bowie’s ‘Starman’ as background music, audiences are heavily invested in this incredible story.
Actor Chris Evans brings his voice to the role of Buzz Lightyear this time around. And it looks like Evans will give a sentimental and heartfelt performance here as the intrepid Space Ranger.
“The phrase ‘a dream come true’ gets thrown around a lot, but I’ve never meant it more in my life,” says Evans. “Anyone who knows me knows that my love for animated films runs deep. I can’t believe that I get to be a part of the Pixar family and work with these truly brilliant artists who tell stories unlike anyone else. Watching them work is nothing short of magic. I pinch myself every day.”
Get ready to go to infinity and beyond when Lightyear arrives in cinemas on June 16, 2022.
