Disney and Pixar have released a poster and trailer for ‘Lightyear’, their upcoming ‘Toy Story’ prequel.
The sci-fi action-adventure presents the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear—the hero who inspired the toy—introducing the legendary Space Ranger who would win generations of fans.
Chris Evans (‘Knives Out’, ‘Avengers: Endgame’) lends his voice to Buzz. “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.”
Take a look at the new poster below:
Annie Award-winning director and veteran Pixar animator Angus MacLane, who co-directed 2016’s ‘Finding Dory’, helms ‘Lightyear’. Galyn Susman (‘Toy Story’, ‘That Time Forgot’ short) produces.
‘Lightyear’ will be released in cinemas on 17th June 2022.
