After a fourth chapter for theaters and several serial productions, the “ Toy Story ” franchise continues to grow: recently, Pixar and Disney confirmed that the saga will win a spinoff film focused on the iconic Buzz Lightyear.
And more: Chris Evans (“Captain America”, “Between Knives and Secrets”) will give the voice of the main character.
On his official Instagram, the beloved actor thanked the opportunity to play the space hero, saying that “it’s a dream come true”:
“Working with Pixar is a dream come true. I have been a huge fan of the movies from the start. My team could barely hide the excitement when I was told Pixar had a proposal for me. All they said was “Buzz Lightyear”. I didn’t know what that means, since Tim Allen is Buzz Lightyear, and no one could touch his performance. I needed to know how this character was different and why this story was worth telling. I can say two things with the greatest confidence:
1. I kept smiling throughout the meeting. From ear to ear.
2. Everyone can rest in peace. And be very excited ”.
Arriving in theaters on June 17, 2022, “Lightyear” is the definitive origin story of our beloved Buzz.
