How to relate characters in this film to original Toy Story characters

It should be clear that the Lightyear character in this film (we don't even have official confirmation his first name is Buzz, do we?) is NOT Buzz Lightyear. The latter character is the action figure representation of the character being portrayed in Lightyear. So it shouldn't be stated that Chris Evans is portraying Buzz Lightyear, he is portraying an all new character that for now I'm calling Buzz Lightyear (Lightyear), unless someone has a better name?

Absolutely agree with this naming. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 14:14, 28 October 2021 (UTC)
I suppose if we could do it all over, the existing Buzz Lightyear would be named something like Buzz Lightyear Action Figure and the character in Lightyear would be Buzz Lightyear. But that's not going to happen, so yes, we'll go with Buzz Lightyear (Lightyear) for the new character, I'll create the page now. Jeff (talk) 16:01, 28 October 2021 (UTC)
Well, I have a feeling that the human's name will not be Buzz, just his nickname. So we'll be able to switch to that at some point. We'll see... - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 16:36, 28 October 2021 (UTC)

Hawthorne name?

Where are people getting her first name as Alicia? I didn't see it in the trailer, just the last name. Remember, we need official proof. Jeff (talk) 13:48, 28 October 2021 (UTC)

Character names

I've had to revert a number of edits for voice cast due to a lack of official proof. Today, while looking at the Izzy Hawthorne page, I saw a photo of an upcoming Lightyear book that showed Izzy's name. To me, that's the proof we need for a character's name. Are there other books that show other character names? Otherwise, before adding character names or associating voice actors to characters, please comment here on where the information is coming from. Thanks. Jeff (talk) 13:41, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

I have locked the Lightyear page for now. I've gone through the sources provided and cleaned up the cast to the best of my ability. None of the sources on the page gave voice actors for characters like Burnside, Morrison, Diaz, Steel or Emperor Zurg. If you have a source that shows who is voicing one of these characters, add it here and I'll add it to the main page. Thanks. Jeff (talk) 23:21, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
I will lift the lock on Lightyear momentarily. But here is a warning: anyone adding unsourced/unconfirmed information regarding the cast or which characters they are voicing will be immediately blocked. Jeff (talk) 21:59, 6 April 2022 (UTC)
