Disney and Pixar have released a brand-new trailer and poster for Lightyear, the sci-fi action-adventure which tells the origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero who inspired the toy—introducing the legendary Space Ranger who would win generations of fans.
Captain America himself, Chris Evans, is lending his voice to Buzz, commenting: “The phrase ‘a dream come true’ gets thrown around a lot, but I’ve never meant it more in my life,” says Evans. “Anyone who knows me knows that my love for animated films runs deep. I can’t believe that I get to be a part of the Pixar family and work with these truly brilliant artists who tell stories unlike anyone else. Watching them work is nothing short of magic. I pinch myself every day.”
Annie Award-winning director and veteran Pixar animator Angus MacLane, who co-directed 2016’s Finding Dory, helms Lightyear, which is releasing June 17, 2022.
