Buzz Lightyear has been a major player in Pixar’s ever-lasting longevity since the company’s start.

Pixar has been adamant about making additional Toy Story stories or Toy Stories with the space ranger in the foreground, and he is arguably the studio’s most recognizable character.

But now the cadet must travel to infinity and, of course, beyond.

Indeed, with Lightyear, the multi-award-winning animation studio’s 26th feature film, the iconic spaceman will finally get his film.

With Chris Evans lending his voice to the galaxy-hopping adventurer; this Buzz Lightyear will not be the same Buzz that audiences have grown up with; especially since this version of the character will follow the origins of the astronaut character who inspired the toy; rather than Andy’s plastic friend.

Here are some important data regarding Lightyear, which will be released in theatres in 2022.

Chris Evans Will Voice Buzz Lightyear

It’s difficult to picture Buzz Lightyear’s voice being anything other than Tim Allen’s.

While various voice actors have played the space cadet in the past; such as Patrick Warburton; Pat Fraley, and Corey Burton; the movies have always used the Home Improvement star (except Toy Story 3’s Spanish Mode Buzz; who is portrayed by Javier Fernandez-Pea). However, this is about to change.

When the movie Lightyear was announced, it was revealed that Chris Evans, not Tim Allen, would play the ever-enduring planet-bouncing, super suit-wearing space ranger.

While Toy Story fans were immediately alarmed, fearing that Allen’s time with the character was coming to an end, Disney/Pixar swiftly stressed that this version of Buzz is not the one we’ve known for decades.

After this standalone film, it’s unknown how long Evans will continue to voice this version of Buzz.
