Disney and Pixar have just released the first teaser trailer for Lightyear , a prequel to Toy Story directed by Angus MacLane, in which Chris Evans will voice the popular Buzz Lightyear . This film that narrates the origin of this beloved character will hit theaters on June 17, 2022.

In a press release, Evans defined this role as “a dream come true” and said: “Anyone who knows me knows of my love for animated films. I cannot believe that I can be part of the Pixar family and work with these artists. truly brilliant who tell stories like no one else . Watching them work is magic. I pinch myself every day. ”

Last year, when the movie was announced on Disney Investor Day, Pete Docter –Pixar- explained : “When we made the first Toy Story , we designed Buzz Lightyear with the idea that it was a toy based on a very cool character from a epic movie. Years later, we decided it was time to make that movie . ”

On the other hand, it is the first time that Buzz Lightyear will have a different voice, because throughout the Toy Story saga he was always played by Tim Allen .
