Pixar Announces “Lightyear” Starring Chris Evans as the Space Ranger!

Something we didn’t know we needed- a prequel animated film about everyone’s favorite Space Ranger, Buzz Lightyear! He’ll be voiced this time by “Captain America” star Chris Evans!

Think of this as something akin to “Galaxy Quest” in a way, where the character of Buzz Lightyear first introduced in “Toy Story” in action-figure form, was a real space hero from an existing property!

Evans REALLY wanted to make sure we understood this is about the origin of the human Buzz Lightyear, not the toy.

It’ll be directed by “Finding Dory” co-director Angus MacLane.

Lightyear” is set to hit theaters June 17th, 2022.
