Buzz’s crew and a terrifying cat are introduced in the new trailer for Lightyear
Pixar provided a fresh look at its Buzz Lightyear origin story with a trailer that introduces the rest of the cast — including a robot cat. Lightyear is a sci-fi action film about the character of Buzz Lightyear, not a toy, this time voiced by Chris Evans. The new trailer features some of his Space Ranger compatriots — voiced by Keke Palmer, Dale Soules and Taika Waititi — as well as Sox, a creepy robotic feline played by Peter Sohn.
Now, the whole premise of Lightyear is a little confusing, and in a statement, director Angus MacLaine tried to clear things up. “Toy Story felt like being a Space Ranger had this incredible backstory that only the world touched upon, and I always wanted to explore more of that world,” he explains. “So my Lightyear pitch was, ‘What movie did Andy watch that makes him want a Buzz Lightyear toy?’ I wanted to see that film. And now I am lucky enough to make it.”
If that doesn’t clear things up, then you will have to wait till the film releases on June 17.
