Who is Lightyear based on and is he Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story?

Disney and Pixar have released the trailer for their latest film Lightyear which is a Toy Story spinoff.

Confused fans are wondering whether Lightyear is the same Buzz Lightyear from the Toy Story franchise or a different astronaut. Strap in and get ready to go to infinity and beyond as we explain everything you need to know about the upcoming movie.

What is Lightyear?

Lightyear is the origin story of how an astronaut inspired the toy we see in the Toy Story movies.

In the trailer, we see Lightyear suit up for what seems to be a dangerous and daring space mission. He boards a space shuttle, with a ground control crew nervously watching on as the astronaut blasts off into outer space. While in the cosmos, Lightyear can be seen exploring alien planets and gazing upon his iconic green and white space suit towards the end of the trailer.

Who is Lightyear based on?

Lightyear will be the astronaut that inspired the toy Buzz Lightyear as opposed to the toy itself which is featured in the Toy Story movies. The movie has been described as the “definitive story of the original Buzz Lightyear- the hero who inspired the toy.”

Chris Evans clarified the intention behind Lightyear on Twitter. He said: “Just to be clear, this isn’t Buzz Lightyear the toy. This is the origin story of the human Buzz Lightyear that the toy is based on.”

Who will be voicing Lightyear?

Unlike films from the Toy Story franchise, the voice of Lightyear will be different in the Pixar prequel.

In the original Toy Story movies, Buzz Lightyear is voiced by Tim Allen however it was revealed that he will not be returning to voice Lightyear in the upcoming film.

Lightyear will instead be voiced by Avengers star Chris Evans. Toy Story tweeted that Evans will play “the young test pilot that became the Space Ranger we all know him to be today.”
