Pixar’s Toy Story spin-off, Lightyear, gets a trailer and poster release
Lightyear Releasing Date
In advance of the animated film’s June 17 theatrical release, Disney and Pixar have released a new Lightyear trailer and poster.
In the official synopsis, “Lightyear follows the legendary Space Ranger after he’s marooned on a hostile planet 4.2 million light-years from Earth alongside his commander and their crew,” which describes the film as “the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero who inspired the toy.” Buzz is accompanied by a group of ambitious recruits, as well as his charming robot companion cat, Sox, as he attempts to find a way home through space and time.” The arrival of Zurg, an imposing presence with an army of ruthless robots and a mysterious agenda, complicates matters and puts the mission in jeopardy.”
Take a look at the second Lightyear trailer, which is embedded below:
Keke Palmer, Dale Soules, and Taika Waititi will join Chris Evans, who will voice Buzz Lightyear, as a group of ambitious newcomers to the Disney family. Meanwhile, Peter Sohn provides the voice of Sox, Buzz’s robot companion. Uzo Aduba, James Brolin, Mary McDonald-Lewis, Efren Ramirez, and Isiah Whitlock Jr. are among the other actors who appear in the film.
“The Lightyear cast is truly a dream team,” director Angus MacLane said of the film’s ensemble. We were able to play a little during the recording sessions because each performer was able to immediately inhabit their character.” Because of this, the material gained a level of specificity that elevated it while also adding new layers of complexity to the characters’ relationships. “It has been an honor to collaborate with such a talented and generous ensemble cast.”
Michael Giacchino, who previously composed the scores for Spider-Man: Homecoming and The Batman, will compose the music for the film. Giacchino has a long history with Pixar, having won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a Grammy for the original score to the animated film Up in 2001. His other Pixar credits include The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Cars 2, Inside Out, Coco, and Incredibles 2. He also worked on The Incredibles and Ratatouille. The soundtrack, which will be released by Walt Disney Records on June 17, 2022, will be available for purchase.
