After four strands of Toy story which feature the cowboy Woody and the astronaut Buzz Lightyear (Buzz Lightyear in original version), we learn that Pixar is planning a new film.

Announced Friday December 11, Lightyear, the prequel film, will be released in theaters on August 17, 2022 in the United States, before a date still unknown for France. Note the ambitious choice of Pixar, Disney group, to release the film on cinema screens and not on the Disney + platform.

The film will be directed by Angus MacLane, already at the helm of the Dory’s World.

A film about the origins of Buzz Lightyear

The film is described as ” Buzz Lightyear’s definitive story “And will allow us to know a little more about” the young test pilot who became the Space Ranger we all know today “.

To give it life, at least vocally, after the departure of Tim Allen who has been lending his voice to the astronaut since 1995 (the actor hung up after the last film in 2019), it is to Chris Evans that the producers have thought.

The Captain America actor wanted to clarify in a tweet what Lightyear (currently untitled in French) would be precisely: ” To be clearer, this is not Buzz Lightyear the toy. This is the origin story of the Buzz Lightyear man the toy is based on “. In the meantime, you can discover the very first image of the film at the top of the article.
