Lightyear Teaser Trailer Shows Buzz’s Origins, Releasing in 2022
Pixar has released the first official teaser for Lightyear, which will see Chris Evans voice the character in his “definitive” origin story. The film, first announced at last year’s Disney+ Investor’s Day, will follow the original Buzz Lightyear before he became the inspiration for the eponymous action figure in the Toy Story franchise.
“Lightyear” is a sci-fi action-adventure and the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear (voice of Chris Evans) – the hero who inspired the toy,” reads the sysnopsis for the film. “The film reveals how a young test pilot became the Space Ranger that we all know him to be today. “Lightyear” is directed by Angus MacLane, produced by Galyn Susman, and opens in theaters in Summer 2022.”
Disney also released a new poster for the film which, similar to the teaser, doesn’t reveal much about the film. With this year’s Disney Plus Day coming up on November 12, it’s possible that we’ll learn (and see) more of the film, including the main trailer.
