Lightyear: Action-packed trailer released for Pixar prequel

A new trailer and poster has been released for Disney and Pixar’s Lightyear and it provides us with an action-packed look at the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear.

Also revealed this morning was the rest of the voice cast featured in the film. Chris Evans was already previously announced to be lending his voice to Buzz but he will be joined by Keke Palmer, Dale Soules, Taika Waititi, Peter Sohn, Uzo Aduba, James Brolin, Mary McDonald-Lewis, Efren Ramirez, and Isiah Whitlock Jr.

Michael Giacchino, the man behind the score for the upcoming film The Batman, as well as Spider-Man: No Way Home, is providing the original score for Lightyear and this continues his long history with Pixar. He won an Oscar, Golden Globe, and GRAMMY for the original score featured in Pixar’s Up.

Lightyear serves as a prequel to the Toy Story franchise and it depicts the in-universe movie of the fictional Buzz Lightyear character. While Tim Allen voiced Buzz Lightyear across four Toy Story films, Chris Evans has stepped in as the voice of the human Buzz Lightyear. When speaking about doing the movie Evans said, “The phrase ‘a dream come true’ gets thrown around a lot, but I’ve never meant it more in my life. Anyone who knows me knows that my love for animated films runs deep. I can’t believe that I get to be a part of the Pixar family and work with these truly brilliant artists who tell stories unlike anyone else. Watching them work is nothing short of magic. I pinch myself every day.” The film was first announced at Disney’s 2020 Investor Day meeting in December.

Annie Award-winning director and veteran Pixar animator Angus MacLane, who co-directed 2016’s Finding Dory, helms Lightyear while Galyn Susman (Toy Story That Time Forgot short) serves as a producer.
