Buzz Lightyear, the spaceman from Toy Story franchise, gets his own Pixar feature with Lightyear, screening June 15 at the Sebastiani Theatre.
The origin story 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 and his army of ruthless robots.
The film features the voices of Chris Evans as, Uzo Aduba as his commander and best friend Alisha Hawthorne, and Peter Sohn as Sox. The voices of Keke Palmer, Taika Waititi, and Mary McDonald-Lewis are featured as well. Alas, no Woody.
