New 'Lightyear' Trailer Sends Buzz to Infinity and Beyond AKA the Future

While also revealing the film’s villain.

UPDATE (April 21, 2022): Pixar has released the full second official trailer for Lightyear.

The trailer shows Buzz, voiced by Chris Evans, on his journey to space, which catches him by surprise after he ends up 62 years, seven months and five days into the future. The trailer also unveils Buzz’s purpose in the film — to help destroy the alien ship.

Keke Palmer, Dale SoulesTaika Waititi, Peter Sohn, Uzo Aduba, James Brolin, Mary McDonald-Lewis, Efren Ramirez and Isiah Whitlock Jr. are involved with the project.

“The cast for ‘Lightyear’ is truly a dream team,” director Angus MacLane said in a statement. “Each of the performers immediately inhabited their character, which gave us the opportunity to play a bit during recording sessions. This resulted in a level of specificity that elevated the material and brought additional depth to the characters’ relationships. It has been a privilege to work with such a talented and generous cast.”

Watch the new trailer above. Lightyear is slated to hit theaters on June 17.


UPDATE (February 9, 2022): Pixar has dropped the full official trailer for Lightyear, a movie that follows the origin story of Toy Story‘s Buzz Lightyear.

“A year of work for a four-minute flight, isn’t that something,” Lightyear says — who is voiced by Chris Evans — as he prepares for his journey. “After a full year of being marooned on this planet, our first test flight is a-go,” he continues to record in his mission log.

“Buzz’s world was always something I was excited about,” director Angus MacLane mentions in a statement. “In Toy Story, there seemed to be this incredible backstory to him being a Space Ranger that’s only touched upon, and I always wanted to explore that world further. So my Lightyear pitch was, ‘What was the movie that Andy saw that made him want a Buzz Lightyear toy?’ I wanted to see that movie. And now I’m lucky enough to get to make it.”

Keke Palmer, Dale Soules and Taika Waititi join the cast as the film’s recruits, while Peter Sohn portrays Buzz’s robot companion, Sox. Additional members include Uzo Aduba, James Brolin, Mary McDonald-Lewis, Efren Ramirez and Isiah Whitlock Jr.

Watch the full trailer below. Lightyear will hit theaters on June 17, 2022.


UPDATE (October 27, 2021): After confirming the release of Lightyear, Disney‘s Pixar has finally unveiled the first teaser of the upcoming origin film focused on Toy Story‘s Buzz Lightyear.

Directed by Angus MacLane, the movie stars Chris Evans as Buzz, succeeding Tim Allen, who voiced the character in the four original titles. The 90-second-long teaser features David Bowie‘s “Starman” as Buzz flies through the galaxy in his spaceship. At the end of his training, he finally meets his signature green-and-purple suit. He closes the clip with his iconic catchphrase: “To infinity and beyond.”

Watch the teaser below. Lightyear is set to premiere in June 2022.
