Chris Evans to Voice Buzz Lightyear in Origin Story from Disney Pixar

Chris Evans may be done playing Captain America, but he’s now set to play the man behind another pop-culture icon — Buzz Lightyear.

The Disney Investor Day has confirmed that Pixar has teamed up with Evans for Lightyear, a movie explaining the origins of Buzz Lightyear, the man who inspired the space ranger that we meet in Toy Story. Here’s the official title reveal as well as a first-look still from the film:

While some are thinking that this will be an adaptation of the animated cartoon Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, it looks like this will tell a ‘true’ story that’s set in the reality of Toy Story, and the Buzz that Evans is playing really a young astronaut that will inspire the line of toys that Buzz is based on.

I don’t really know what to expect with the film, but I imagine that it’s going to be pretty inspiring; why else would they base a successful toyline off of this supposed national hero? It’s not really the direction I expected the Toy Story franchise would go, but I love how they’re spinning it off from that story, and I would like to see just how much of this Buzz inspired the toy Buzz.

Personally, I have just one thing on my list, and it’s that they have Randy Newman provide the music, and once Buzz is in his low point, they play I Will Go Sailing No More from the first movie.

Lightyear is set to come out on June 17, 2022.
