Pixar has just unveiled the first trailer for Lightyear, the spin-off of Buzz Lightyear in which the space hero screams for realism.
Buzz Lightyear, the bravest astronaut in history, seems more determined than ever to reach infinity and beyond in this first trailer for the film, titled Lightyear. If we know the Buzz Lightyear toy on Toy Story’s shelves, it’s emancipated here in this spin-off that will trace its origins from his teens as a test pilot to his crucial flight, Ranger.
Directed by Angus MacLane, co-director of World of Dory and director of Toy Story Shorts: Motel Anguish and Mini Buzz. It’s comforting to know that MacLane is a regular in the universe.
Aliens, robots and a foggy planet
Buzz Lightyear has already been adapted by Pixar in the past, in 2000 with the series The Adventures of Buzz Lightyear and the film Buzz Lightyear, the film: The Beginning of the Adventures. Here, the ranger of space seems larger than life and, unlike aliens and other robots, stands in the heart of a mysterious planet not dissimilar to that of Dagobah in the Star Wars trilogy.
We knew that the Pixar studios had planned to release the animated film on June 22, 2022 and that Chris Evans, aka Captain America, would be dubbing Buzz L’Eclair. Departure planned for next year. In the meantime, here is the long-awaited trailer!
