So, Why Is Tim Allen Not Involved?

Tim Allen voiced the original Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story, and some fans are wondering why he hasn’t been cast in the latest film.

Some have explained that Evans has been cast to voice the ‘human’ Buzz, given that this film is based on the real-life, younger Lightyear that went on to inspire the toy version.

Director Angus MacLane explained:

“In the Toy Story universe, it would be like a movie that maybe Andy would have seen, that would have made him want a Buzz Lightyear figure.”

Chris Evans is excited for Lightyear as well

It’s not just us who is excited as well – Chris Evans is also fangirling.

“Animated movies were an enormous part of my childhood. They were my escape. My adventures. My dreams. They were my first window into the magic of storytelling and performing.”

Release Date

Lightyear is set to be released in June 2022.
