MILLENIALS! This Is Not A Drill, LIGHTYEAR Was Pulled From Your Wildest Dreams

Published

Dearest Pixar, Thank you for living inside my heart and gathering things I didn’t even know I needed to help me grow in joy and the desire for exploration. Thank you for playtime to share with my kids. This was a sob show for me. I appreciate it.

Chris Evans is going to infinity and beyond.

Captain America himself is voicing Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s upcoming origin story for everyone’s favorite “Toy Story” character, aptly titled “Lightyear.” Pixar released the first trailer for the animated, family-friendly, sci-fi movie on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday.

However, “Lightyear” doesn’t follow the toy-sized, space-faring exploits of Tim Allen’s iconic character. Rather, the 2022 film introduces the “real-life” human astronaut whose adventures inspired the toy line seen in the “Toy Story” franchise.”

This is … a dream. I could not be more excited about this. As a parent AND as a person growing up with this franchise, I’m elated at the idea of this type of expansion. And I’m not alone.

“The phrase ‘a dream come true’ gets thrown around a lot, but I’ve never meant it more in my life,” Evans said in a statement accompanying the first trailer release. “Anyone who knows me knows that my love for animated films runs deep. I can’t believe that I get to be a part of the Pixar family and work with these truly brilliant artists who tell stories unlike anyone else. Watching them work is nothing short of magic. I pinch myself every day.”
