Special Look Trailer For “Lightyear” Shows Off The Classic Buzz Look

This team is better than none.

The trailers for Lightyear keep coming with Disney-Pixar releasing a special look at the upcoming animated science-fiction adventure.

In this latest look at the film, we get a good look at the iconic Buzz Lightyear costume. We also get more insight into the story and character arcs, alongside some new footage of Buzz as he battles his way through the galaxy.

Check it out below.

 

Lightyear revolves around the fictional origin story of the original Buzz Lightyear, the character who inspired the action figure in the Toy Story films. In this film, Buzz does his first test flight for Star Command, but he ends up time traveling 62 years into the future instead and must now find a way to return home. However, when the evil Emperor Zurg threatens the universe’s safety along the way, Buzz may be its only hope to save it.

Chris Evans takes over the voicing role for Buzz, replacing Tim Allen who voiced the character in the Toy Story films. The voice ensemble cast also includes Keke Palmer, Uzo Aduba, Dale Soules, Peter Sohn and Taika Waititi.
 
Lightyear is directed by Angus MacLane, who has spoken about how tricky it was to explore the real Buzz Lightyear character while still reflecting his Toy Story persona.
 
“Because he’s a side character in Toy Story, we were going to try to figure out how to pour it into a main character, but we needed to keep a certain aesthetic, a certain sensibility to his lantern jawed squareness, but do it in a way that felt like it was motivated by something. We found pretty quickly if you watch Toy Story again, you imagine a whole movie [with that Buzz], which is the guy going, ‘Well, I’m going over here. Look, I’m going over there. Oh no, look, monsters!’ You get tired of that pretty quickly. And so the idea, some of the revelations of how we were able to thread that needle and making it more well-rounded character were essential to maintaining a feature.”
Lightyear is set to blast into theatres on June 17th.
