First trailer for Toy Story movie Lightyear with Chris Evans

A first look at Pixar’s Toy Story prequel Lightyear has been unveiled in a new teaser trailer.

The movie will see Marvel’s Chris Evans voice the iconic character, with the film due out next summer.

Our first glimpse shows Buzz Lightyear rocketing off towards the sun (and beyond), while also giving us a look at his time in a space port and facing off against a tentacled monster… and a robotic cat.

The clip is soundtracked by David Bowie’s iconic and very apt ‘Starman’, and even gives us a teaser of Buzz’s iconic catchphrase: “To infinity, and beyond.”

Lightyear has been described by Pixar’s chief creative officer Pete Docter as the “definitive story of the original Buzz Lightyear” with “a new twist to an iconic character”.

The movie was first confirmed in December last year during Disney Investor Day as part of a slate of announcements from the company.

Evans, who takes over the role from Tim Allen, reacted to his casting at the time by admitting he didn’t “even have words”.

He elaborated: “The phrase ‘a dream come true’ gets thrown around a lot, but I’ve never meant it more in my life. Anyone who knows me knows that my love for animated films runs deep.

“I can’t believe that I get to be a part of the Pixar family and work with these truly brilliant artists who tell stories unlike anyone else. Watching them work is nothing short of magic. I pinch myself every day.”

The Captain America star also clarified last year that the Buzz who fans will see is very much human as opposed to the toy we all know and love from Toy Story.

“And just to be clear, this isn’t Buzz Lightyear the toy,” he explained. “This is the origin story of the human Buzz Lightyear that the toy is based on.”

Lightyear will mark the first movie in the long-running Pixar franchise since 2019’s Toy Story 4, and will be directed by Angus MacLane (Finding Dory).

Lightyear is set to fly into cinemas on June 17, 2022.
