Disney has revealed we will be getting an origin story for one of its most popular animated characters.

Everyone knows Buzz Lightyear from the Toy Story franchise, but how much do we really know about him?

Well, that's what Disney will explain in 2022 when it releases a spin-off film.

Titled Lightyear, the movie is described as 'the definitive story of the original Buzz Lightyear' that will deep dive into the story of the 'young test pilot that became the Space Ranger we all know him to be today'.

It will be released into cinemas on 17 June 2022 and Buzz will be voiced by Captain America star Chris Evans.

Tim Allen officially hung up the boots for the character after the fourth film in the series and it looks like Evans is set to take over.

The new recruit clarified what the movie will be about in a Tweet, saying: "Just to be clear, this isn't Buzz Lightyear the toy. This is the origin story of the human Buzz Lightyear that the toy is based on."

This will surely be an incredible watch.
