Pixar Animation Studios’ next computer-animated science fiction action-adventure film Lightyear will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It’s a Toy Narrative spin-off that serves as an origin story for the fictional test pilot/astronaut character that inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy/action figure featured in the main films, and it’s presented as a blockbuster film within a blockbuster picture that the Toy Story characters would watch. This premise was previously explored in the 2000 direct-to-video film Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, which served as the pilot for the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command (2000–2001) television series. Angus MacLane co-wrote and directed the film, which stars Chris Evans as the voice of the titular character.
Lightyear lost his home while also dealing with a threat to the universe’s survival. Following the completion of Finding Dory (2016), MacLane, a science fiction lover, approached Pixar with the notion of developing a feature about Buzz Lightyear. The animators intended to give the picture a “cinematic” and “chunky” aesthetic to imitate the sci-fi flicks that the filmmaker grew up watching.

Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures are collaborating on the upcoming computer-animated science-fiction action picture Lightyear. At a Disney Investor Day presentation in December 2020, Lightyear was unveiled as a spin-off feature describing the in-universe origin of the human Buzz Lightyear, with Chris Evans supplying the character’s voice. A scene portraying Alicia Hawthorne and another lady kissing was originally erased, it was disclosed in March 2022. As a consequence of current Disney CEO Bob Chapek’s reaction to the “Don’t Say Gay” Bill and the resulting internal outcry, the sequence was resurrected.
On June 17, 2022, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures will release Lightyear in RealD 3D, Dolby Cinema, and IMAX formats in US theatres. Following the direct-to-streaming releases Soul, Luca, and Turning Red on Disney+ in reaction to the COVID-19 outbreak, it will be Pixar’s first theatrical release in two years.
