Lightyear: Everything You Need To Know

Buzz Lightyear has been a crucial figure in Pixar’s long-term success since the company’s inception. Pixar has been adamant about making more Toy Story tales or Toy Stories with the space ranger at the foreground, arguably the studio’s most known character. But now is the time for the cadet to travel to infinity and beyond, of course.

Lightyear,’ directed by Angus MacLane, co-director of Finding Dory is an upcoming American animated, adventure, family, fantasy, sci-fi film. Pete Docter is the writer and the creator of the movie.

John Ratzenberger has directed 26 Pixar films in a row. The film is a Toy Story spin-off that takes place inside the narrative of “Buzz Lightyear of Star Command” (“the show within the movie.”) Here’s everything we know regarding the upcoming movie “Lightyear.” Without further ado, let’s get into details. 

The Cast

Light Year has yet to receive an official announcement. However, we do know that Buzz Lightyear, who will be voiced by Chris Evans, will be the main character. Woody (though there’s a chance we won’t see him),  Mrs. Potato Head, Barbie, Joan, Jessie, Rex,  Buttercup, Mr. Prickle pants, Trixie, Aliens, Dolly, Bonnie are some of the past characters from Toy Story 4 seasons who we might anticipate to see in Light Year.

We never hear about the other characters associated with Buzz Lightyear save Zurg in the Toy Story movies, and while we do not really know if he will feature in the future film, there are other characters I’m not sure will appear as well. 

Obviously, Buzz is a major character, but who will serve as his deputy? Or the pilot of his spaceship? Or perhaps his mentor? It will be Buzz’s genesis storyline, but we do not really know more about who he is or what he’s done, so there are a lot of unanswered questions about who shaped Buzz Lightyear into the man he is now.

Release date

According to certain internet sources, Toy Story receives a lot of popularity throughout the summer, which is why Light Year was chosen to be released during the summer. Pixar has officially stated that Light-year will be released in the summer of 2022. 

For fans, this is fantastic news! The official release date has likewise been scheduled for June 17, 2022. We still don’t know if filming or production has started since no information about the trailer has been released. To prevent any delays caused by the covid-19 outbreak, we expect the show to begin filming as soon as feasible.


The production house hasn’t made anything official yet. We’re merely speculating on the plot. It’s the narrative of a small boy who grows up to become a space pilot and is adored. He is also admired by many young males. The entire story might be written in-universe, or there could be an inter-mediator who connects the universe and the real-world toys. It’s still doubtful whether we will see light years associated with toys this season.
