I'm an entrepreneur with a variety of interests that range from comics to anime.

It's a neat title card and fit Buzz Lightyear to a T.

What we know about production...

Back in October 27th 2021, we got a first teaser for Buzz Lightyear’s solo film. Development for the film started in 2016 after Pixar finished Finding Dory. The story for LightYear was pitched by Angus MacLane who likes Science fiction, and wanted to make a film that illustrated what Andy from Toy Story saw in Buzz Lightyear. The film was announced on December 2020 at a Disney investor meeting.

The cast consist of Chris Evans as Buzz Lightyear, Taka Waititi as Mo Morrison, James Brolin as Zurg, Keke Palmer as Izzy Hawthorne, Peter Sohn as Sox, Efren Ramirez as Diaz, Dale Soules as Darby Steel. There will also be a cameo from European astronaut Tim Peak as “Tim from Mission Control.”

What Little We Know About The Premise...

The premise is where Buzz Lightyear is marooned on a hostile planet. This leads him to following a legendary Space Ranger to get back to Earth. As Buzz journeys through space and time, he is joined by ambitious recruits and a robot cat, Sox.

Yeah, I enjoy this more than I should. Can't wait for the film.

In Conclusion...

In conclusion this looks like a promising film and celebration of Buzz Lightyear as a character. The animators wanted to have the same cinematic and “chunky” aesthetic of a sci-fi film, and they might have pulled that off. I for one am excited to see LightYear’s space adventure and what his crew is like.

Lightyear will premiere in theaters on June 17th 2022, and I’m here for it, and hope it does well.
