A first look teaser has touched down for Pixar’s upcoming Toy Story spinoff Lightyear, which will bring us the origin story of a Space Ranger named Buzz.
Billed as a “sci-fi action-adventure”, this is the story of the actual Buzz Lightyear, the intrepid space hero who inspired the toy version that we know and love from the Toy Story series of films. It’s kind of life imitating art inside more art. Or something like that.
Captain America himself Chris Evans gives voice to the “real” Buzz, and he said of the experience, “The phrase ‘a dream come true’ gets thrown around a lot, but I’ve never meant it more in my life. 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.”
No other cast members have been revealed at this time. Finding Dory co-director Angus MacLane directs this one.
Lightyear is currently set for a June 2022 release in Australian cinemas. Make teaser go now:
