Buzz Lightyear to the rescue! Those infamous words spanned over 4 movies known as Toy Story. While that storyline focused on the toy of Buzz Lightyear, the actual space ranger story has yet to be told until now.
Last year at the Disney Investor Day presentation, Disney announced that Pixar was working on a solo story about the real Buzz Lightyear, that inspired the toy in Toy Story and that Buzz was going to be voiced by Captain America himself, Chris Evans. Now this rattled the cage of the Toy Story fans, why wasnt Tim Allen given the chance to come back and re-voice buzz? Simple answer is, its not about that version of Buzz. This is the Space Ranger story.
The version of Buzz featured in Lightyear will be very different than the one we’re used to, but this won’t be the first time the character has existed as something other than a toy. Buzz Lightyear of Star Command was an animated TV series that aired on The Disney Channel in 2000 and 2001. That show followed the adventures of the Space Rangers at Star Command, with Patrick Warburton voicing Buzz. A film called Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins kicked off the events of the series, though Allen remained the voice of Buzz for that title.
While we are still unsure whats in store for the movie, we have the first official teaser trailer from Lightyear to get us excited on whats to come.
Lightyear is set to hit cinemas on the 17th of June 2022. This will be the second Pixar movie of 2022 with Turning Red being their first.
Let us know what you think about this one Toy Story fans. What do you think of Buzz with hair? Bet that one is freaking you out a bit.
