Lightyear is an upcoming American 3D computer animated film produced by Pixar set to be released on June 17, 2022. The film, a spin-off of the Toy Story series, will tell the origins of the human Buzz Lightyear.[1] The film will be Pixar’s 26th feature film.



According to Pete Docter at the Disney Investor Day in 2020,

At first glance, you might think, 'this is a Toy Story film.' Well, not so fast! See, back when we created the first Toy Story, we designed Buzz Lightyear with the idea that he was a toy based on some really cool character from an epic blockbuster film. Well, all these years later we decided it's time to make that film.


And after the release of the teaser trailer on October 27, 2021, director Angus MacLane commented,

The movie doesn't end and then you see Andy eating popcorn […] This is its own thing… This is standalone. It's the Buzz Lightyear movie. It's that character but as the space ranger, not as the toy.
