Lightyear Updates: Pixar has released the first poster to their new film, which will, of course, be the origin story of everyone’s favorite space hero, Buzz Lightyear.
The poster shows a close-up of the stellar team’s most infamous costume, which appears to have a few chips and scratches on it. Perhaps this wear and tear is stemming from all the adventures the hero has been going on. In the other photo, we see Buzz behind the helm of a spaceship blasting through the stars on what we can only imagine is another mission… to infinity and beyond!
Chris Evans will lend his voice talents to bring life to the action figure that inspired the toy. He said his new role is as a former Avenger.
I’ve never meant it more in my life when I hear this phrase and say it. Anyone who knows me knows that I love animated films. I am so excited to be part of the Pixar family and the opportunity to work with these talented people who tell incredible stories. Every day I am amazed at my life.
The Pixar film also released a trailer to give fans a peek at what they can expect from the upcoming animated film. The trailer gives us an idea of what the animators and other creatives have been working on this project. We see Buzz soaring off in a spaceship with a perfectly timed drop of David Bowie’s “Starman” playing as he sails off beyond the sun.
Viewers were also given a look at the world that surrounds Buzz in the form of robots, giant octopus-tentacle-like aliens, and possibly even an alien cat. The good news is that the new movie will have its release in June 2022.
This new feature will not be the first spin-off of the well-loved movie franchise Toy Story. Buzz Lightyear of Star Command was a popular animated series that aired between 2000 and 2001 that followed Buzz as he trained newcomers at Star Command and tried to bring peace across the galaxy, all while of course attempting to bring down the Evil Emperor Zurg.
Judging by the success of all four Toy Story films, Lightyear is bound to be another hit that will blast the Pixar company to infinity. Check out the new pictures for Lightyear and see what you think about this fresh, exciting tale of the man behind the Toy Story action figure.
