As a part of the Disney Investors Day in December 2020, Lightyear was announced. It’s a presentation aimed to pique interest in all the future Disney projects, meanwhile assuring investors, that even though 2020 had been a terrible year, there’s yet so much more to be excited about.
Pete Docter, Pixar’s chief creative officer, described that Lightyear wasn’t a ” Toy Story” movie but rather the one that inspired Andy’s favorite toy. Chris Evans would be voicing this Buzz rather than Tim Allen.
While this came up to be a straightforward situation, an immediate perplexity was seen on the internet. Part of it was concerning Evan’s tweet, which read, “Just to be clear, this isn’t Buzz Lightyear the toy,” following the announcement.
Precisely, Andy’s wish for a Buzz Lightyear toy was lightened by the film Lightyear. During a panel with Angus MacLane, he told that Andy may not have seen Lightyear when it was still running in the theaters.
MacLane suggests the movie was created in the late 1970s or early 1980s. Andy wouldn’t be alive at that time. Though, he could have seen it.
When and Where Would the Audience See Lightyear?
The movie will hit the theaters exclusively on 17th June 2022. Buzz and his earthbound partner Alisha Hawthorne (Uzo Aduba), are on the final preparation for the launch that involves one of Star Command’s first gates, which seems to be designed to facilitate every long-distance travel, as the new trailer suggests.
Though Buzz’s solo flight through the gate seems to be almost a success, in the beginning, his robot car assistant Sox (Peter Sohn) tells him that by any chance he has traveled decades into the future when he touches down on what comes up to be an unfamiliar planet.
After finding one of the friendly faces in the future, Buzz mistook it for Alisha, and Izzy confirms to him that Alisha was her grandmother. Apparently, it’s clear that Buzz has reached a place far beyond anyone would have thought or expected.
