It’s difficult to add anything new to the voluminous literature on Pixar.
Toy Story, the first feature-length computer-animated picture from the Disney-owned animation studio, was released in 1995. Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Up are just a few of the Pixar masterpieces that were inspired by this film. Pixar is unique among computer-generated animation firms in that, in addition to being hilarious and thrilling, their films often deal with serious issues and messages.
It doesn’t mean that, after Toy Story 4, Pixar won’t develop future films based on its well-established IPs, despite their announcement that they would stop making sequels. Toy Tale character Buzz Lightyear will be the subject of a feature-length origin story by Pixar’s Chief Creative Officer Pete Doctor at the company’s 2020 Disney Investor Day presentation.
Using this guide, you can learn more about Lightyear, including its release date, where you can see it, and who is in the cast.
Lightyear’s Teaser Trailer Is Here!
Lightyear’s amazing photorealistic animation and futuristic settings and characters were initially showcased in Disney’s first teaser, which debuted on October 29, 2021. While “Starman” sets the tone for the majority of the trailer, David Bowie’s legendary tune is also featured.
Lightyear Release Date: What About The Airing Date?
Three months after the release of another Pixar picture, Turning Red, Lightyear will be released on June 17, 2022. Angus MacLane, the film’s director, said this when asked if he was close to finishing Lightyear:
“I can definitely see the finish line. We have a ton of work to do, but I’m just trying to enjoy it, as best I can. I really like the team that I’m working with, and because of COVID, I haven’t gotten to work in person with them very much. So, I’m back at the studio, working on the film and interfacing with some people that occasionally come in. I’m just trying to enjoy it. When you’re working on something where you know you’re not gonna get to work with that same group of people again, in the same capacity, what I’ve learned over the years is that all you have is that experience. So, I’m trying to enjoy it, even though there are a bunch of challenges.”
Though the trailers for Lightyear are any indication, how much time and care went into making this film, even if it was not always shot in one location, is a tribute to how much we can expect from it.
Since Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was a huge box office success, Disney has decided that it will provide theater-only releases to several of its 2021 projects and likely everything after that.
After Disney announced that Turning Red would be the third Pixar movie in a row to premiere exclusively on Disney+ at no additional charge, the prospects of Lightyear obtaining a regular theatrical release became far less likely. While it seems improbable that Lightyear will be subjected to the same fate, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Lightyear Characters: Who Has Chances To Be Out?
Captain America: The First Avenger’s Chris Evans, who will play the film’s eponymous Space Ranger, is the only actor whose participation in the Lightyear voice cast has been officially confirmed as of this writing.
MacLane, who coincidentally directed Tim Allen in the 2011 short film Small Fry and the 2013 television special Toy Story of Terror!, said the following about this new casting of Buzz Lightyear despite Allen having voiced him in the first four Toy Story films and continuing to do so in many other related media:
“I wanted the film to have like a gravitas to it and a seriousness to it, but also have an actor who could bring comedy with that seriousness. He was really the first and only choice. I didn’t have a number two. It was very clear from the get-go. It was like, ‘If you were gonna make a legitimate sci-fi film about Buzz Lightyear, who would you get? Well, Chris Evans.’ You need someone that has that star power. If it had to be live-action, who would do it? He can do both. Although that chin would be so weird in live-action. You could never get around that. But he was the first choice and he’s been such an amazing partner. He totally got the material right away and felt the sense of responsibility to figure out the translation to the character, for this larger context of this sci-fi movie and really deliver on it. He’s just been a wonderful creative partner in the whole process.”
Lightyear is the only character in the film whose casting has been confirmed as of right now. In addition to introducing new characters, the teaser introduced viewers to characters whose casting has not yet been announced.
Characters with name tags that read “Hawthorne” may be close friends with Lightyear, given that the teaser closes with her saying the first half of his famous catchphrase, which he almost finishes. Even if he does finish it in the movie, this isn’t Chris Evans’ first time skipping over a catchphrase.

Lightyear: What’s Up With That?
A mechanical cat named “Sox” wears a collar that can be seen in the trailer, in case you missed it. Lightyear’s karate chop motion from the Toy Story movie may have been inspired by Sox’s karate stance at one point.
Zurg is nowhere to be seen in Lightyear.
