What You Should Know About ‘Lightyear’

Buzz Lightyear has already been part of everyone’s childhood days. Not only that, but it has also become the favorite anime movie of adults because of its unique storyline that follows a Space Ranger. But the question that remained unanswered today is that “Who is Buzz Lightyear?”

This year’s CG-animated movie ‘Lightyear’ will tell us the origin of Buzz Lightyear. However, this does not necessarily mean that this is a prequel to the Toy Story. Here’s the official synopsis of ‘Lightyear’, according to a published article in COLLIDER:

  • “The definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero who inspired the toy, “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. As Buzz tries to find a way back home through space and time, he’s joined by a group of ambitious recruits and his charming robot companion cat, Sox. Complicating matters and threatening the mission is the arrival of Zurg, an imposing presence with an army of ruthless robots and a mysterious agenda.”
