Disney-Pixar shared a trailer for the animated sci-fi adventure film ‘Lightyear,’ a spinoff of the Toy Story film series. The new movie serves as an origin story for Buzz Lightyear, the fictional astronaut who inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in Toy Story. Pixar posted on social media: ‘Get ready to go beyond infinity with Disney and Pixar’s #Lightyear, only in theaters June 17.’
Chris Evans voices Buzz in Lightyear, which also features the voices of Keke Palmer, Dale Souls, Taika Waititi, Peter Sohn, Uzo Aduba and James Brolin. The trailer shows Buzz (Evans) take flight from a remote planet and face off with a “massive robot.”
Lightyear, written and directed by Angus MacLane, opens in theaters June 17.
