Lightyear

Every hero’s journey has to have a beginning and now one of Disney and Pixar’s most beloved characters is getting an origin story of their own in Lightyear.

Check out the trailer here…


Lightyear is the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear — the hero who inspired the toy — and follows the legendary Space Ranger on an intergalactic adventure.

“Buzz’s world was always something I was excited about,” said director Angus MacLane. “In Toy Story, there seemed to be this incredible backstory to him being a Space Ranger that’s only touched upon, and I always wanted to explore that world further. So my Lighytear pitch was: ‘What was the movie that Andy saw that made him want a Buzz Lightyear toy?’ I wanted to see that movie. And now I’m lucky enough to get to make it.”

Chris Evans (Captain America) lends his voice to Buzz, and he is joined by Keke Palmer (Alice), Dale Soules (Orange Is The New Black) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) as a group of ambitious recruits. Peter Sohn (Luca) voices Buzz’s robot companion, Sox, and the cast also includes the voices of Uzo Aduba (Orange Is The New Black), James Brolin (Sweet Tooth), Mary McDonald-Lewis (Archer), Efren Ramirez (Mad Families) and Isiah Whitlock Jr (I Care A Lot).

“The cast for Lightyear is truly a dream team,” MacLane continued. “Each of the performers immediately inhabited their character, which gave us the opportunity to play a bit during recording sessions. This resulted in a level of specificity that elevated the material and brought additional depth to the characters’ relationships.

“It has been a privilege to work with such a talented and generous cast.”

Lightyear will be released on 17 June 2022.
