Lightyear – Full Movie
June 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
How to Watch ‘Lightyear’: Is Pixar’s ‘Toy Story’ Spin-Off Streaming Online? Pixar takes us on an all-new trip to infinity and beyond! We all had our favorite toys growing up that we’d go on the craziest adventures with. If Pixar’s beloved franchise Toy Story taught me anything, it’s that our toys had some without us too! Across four films, we got to learn about some of the toys’ dramatic backstories, one of which was space ranger Buzz Lightyear. Where did the inspiration for the Buzz Lightyear toy and his backstory come from though? With Pixar’s latest film Lightyear, we’ll discover the “real life” origin story of the man behind the iconic toy, the titular test pilot/astronaut Buzz Lightyear, voiced by Chris Evans (aka Captain America).
Directed by Angus MacLane, and written by MacLane and Jason Headly, Lightyear follows Buzz after he and his crew have been marooned on a dangerous alien planet. During a test flight to hopefully reach Earth and get help for the crew, Buzz is flung 62 years into the future. Not only is he now time-displaced and stranded on an unknown planet (again!), a terrifying robot named Emperor Zurg (James Brolin) is also attempting to take over the universe. Helping Buzz to save the universe, defeat Zurg, and return home, are a ragtag trio of soldiers; Izzy Hawthorne (Keke Palmer), Mo Morrison (Taika Waititi), and Darby Steel (Dale Soules).
Here’s how you can watch this brand-new animated movie featuring everyone’s favorite space ranger!
If you want a sneak peek at Lightyear before it comes, you’re in luck because Pixar has released a number of trailers you can check out. The first trailer, set to David Bowie’s song “Starman”, teases the epic scope of Buzz’s time-traveling and space-exploring adventure, while the second has a bigger focus on highlighting Buzz’s new allies. Both trailers feature a number of neat Toy Story easter eggs that just make us even more excited about this movie. It looks like Pixar could have another massive hit on their hands, so the only real question is when we can see it!
