Disney and Pixar have finally released a full trailer for the upcoming Lightyear movie about Buzz Lightyear.
We got our first taste of Lightyear in Oct. of last year, and it surprised everyone. Who ever really thought we needed an origin story for Buzz Lightyear? What that teaser didn’t tell us, however, was very much of the story. Now, a full trailer has arrived and made it clear what is happening.
“Lightyear” is the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear—the hero who inspired the toy—follows the legendary Space Ranger on an intergalactic adventure. “Buzz’s world was always something I was excited about,” said director Angus MacLane. “In ‘Toy Story,’ there seemed to be this incredible backstory to him being a Space Ranger that’s only touched upon, and I always wanted to explore that world further. So my ‘Lighytear’ pitch was, ‘What was the movie that Andy saw that made him want a Buzz Lightyear toy?’ I wanted to see that movie. And now I’m lucky enough to get to make it.”
It’s definitely the movie none of us knew we needed until it existed.
Lightyear will hit theaters on June 17, 2022.
