The Trailer For Disney And Pixar's Lightyear Has Dropped

The Trailer For Disney And Pixar's Lightyear Has Dropped

Chris Evans will take on the role of Buzz Lightyear in the new animation set to be released in June 2022

A trailer for Disney and Pixar's Lightyear has just dropped. You can watch it here:

The film, starring Chris Evans as Buzz Lightyear, will be an origin movie for one of Toy Story's most popular characters, who we really don't know all that much about.

It's been 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'.

Whether you plan to watch it with your own small family members, borrow your friend's kids or just fancy some good nostalgia, there's certainly a buzz around the release (which will be on 17 June 2022).

This even comes from Chris Evans himself with the Captain America star saying: "Animated movies were an enormous part of my childhood. They were my escape. My adventures. My dreams."


The 40-year-old went on to add: "They were my first window into the magic of storytelling and performing. To Pixar and Angus MacLane: 'Thank you' doesn't even come close."

The movie is directed by Angus MacLane, who co-directed Finding Dory in 2016. Writing credits go to Pete Doctor, the Chief Directive Officer at Pixar Animation Studios, who worked on Monsters Inc.Up and Inside Out to name a few.

Taking to Twitter, MacLane explained: "The movie we're all working on is the one I've always wanted to see, and I can't wait to share it with the rest of you in June."


Despite their eagerness to see the movie, some fans have questions why Tim Allen won't be voicing Buzz like he has done in all of the Toy Story films.

That's simply because the film isn't about the Toy Story version of Buzz. This might be confusing but if you think about it - Buzz is just a toy (sorry)... he's a plastic replica of the IRL Buzz Lightyear.

Taking to Twitter, one user explained: "The reason Tim Allen doesn't voice Buzz Lightyear in this is because Tim voices the toy. 

"Chris Evans is the 'real life' Buzz and Patrick Warburton is the cartoon Buzz. As a die-hard Toy Story fan, I'm okay with this." I think I am, too.

Lightyear will hit cinemas on 17 June 2022, so it's probably best to get that in the diary now.
