WATCH: Trailer drops for Lightyear movie… and honestly, we’re still just confused

February 8th, 2022 by Marc Comments

What if Buzz Lightyear, the toy from the Toy Story movies… was a real space hero? And what if that hero was voiced by Chris Evans?

Honestly, I don’t think this is a story that even sort of needs to be told, but since it’s Pixar, I’ll have a look. Plus it opens on my birthday, so there’s that.

It looks like a fun action/sci-fi animated tale… I just don’t see the need to make it a Buzz Lightyear movie.

Just me?

Will you be there in the summer to check it out? Let me know your thoughts, guys…

heck out a brand-new trailer for Disney and Pixar’s “Lightyear,” an original feature film releasing June 17, 2022. The sci-fi action-adventure presents the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear—the hero who inspired the toy—introducing the legendary Space Ranger who would win generations of fans. Buzz Lightyear is voiced by Chris Evans and in theaters next Summer!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
