Today we finally got some more plot details surrounding the elusive (and confusing) Light year movie, which is about the guy who inspired the toy, not the toy itself. Make sense ? Disney is not making it easy for us.
The latest trailer explains that there’s time and space travel involved in the plot, so things are starting to make a little more sense. It seems that Lightyear was only supposed to be in space for a few minutes and ended up there for several decades. Chaos ensues. It is Interstellar for kids!
We also got a first look at Zurg and his robot army, which will be a throwback for everything. toy story fan. Of course, we hear Chris Evans say the iconic phrase: “to infinity and beyond.” It’s not as fun as when Tim Allen and Tom Hanks say it is, but Hanks is too busy building toys to be one.
Here is the official description from Disney:
The definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero who inspired the toy, Light year follows the legendary Space Ranger after he is stranded on a hostile planet 4.2 million light years from Earth alongside his commander and crew. As Buzz tries to find a way home through space and time, he’s joined by a group of ambitious rookies and his charming robot cat companion, Sox. To complicate matters and threaten the mission, the arrival of Zurg, a towering presence with an army of ruthless robots and a mysterious agenda
Light year stars Chris Evans as Buzz, alongside Uzo Aduba, Keke Palmer, Taika Waititi and Dale Soule. Although there is allegedly controversy surrounding some of the characters, Pixar would have allowed a gay kiss to be in the film (for now).
The space adventure hits theaters on June 17. Check out the trailer above.
