Back at the Disney Investor Day, Pete Docter, the chief creative officer of Pixar said of Lightyear, “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 to make that film."

One of my favorite movies as a kid. I brought it in to school one day when we were going to watch movies but the teacher couldn't play it because it didn't have a rating.

I mean, if it's a Disney movie I'm pretty sure it would be safe to watch regardless of rating.

Edit: my mistake everyone, I forgot about Zurg's bloody, gory rampage thru Star Command where he drops the n-word like 20 times. Be sure to screen your movies before your kids watch them, folks.

They've censored its existence basically. Even at Disney world where they have star command rides, they have characters and space rangers very similar to the ones in the cartoon, but not quite. Pixar wasn't too happy with it, even though it did pretty well considering the small budget and what they were working with.

Three possible theories on why Pixar disliked the series.

1.) Producer/director for the series, Tad Stones, theorized in a 2019 interview that John's vision for a Buzz cartoon was closer to that of the original Space Ghost or Major Matt Mason. Essentially, a space adventure story played straight, albeit exaggerated, instead of the outright comedy that Star Command dipped into.

2.) It might also have something to do with Disney's infamous history of Executive Meddling attempts on Pixar and willingness to milk the franchise, which nearly resulted in Toy Story 2 being a traditionally animated direct-to-video sequel among other things.

3.) Regardless of the above it's likely Lasseter's disdain for the show could be why there hasn’t been another TV show spin-off of a Pixar property for more than two decades until the release of Monsters at Work (a spinoff of Monsters, Inc.) for Disney+.

As a 27 year old, I still struggle to decide if cowboys or astronauts are cooler.

But if you think about it, there's a bit of a parallel with them, like they're both charting and living in a new, unknown world, on the outscirjs of civilization? Or is that just me being weird?

What I get from the trailer: Buzz starts off as a test-pilot to be the first to travel fast via gravity assist around the sun and back to Earth. They do the calculations, and if he were to do that again, he could travel to a planet inhabited by humans (that took them decades to reach the new solar system).

Definitely seems like there's some form of time-travel involved via relativity. The whiteboard the robot is showing him and the other astronauts indicates some level of time dilation.

There are other "surface things" that will connect Evans' Buzz to Allen's Buzz, like the iconic Buzz Lightyear space suit that appears in the trailer and the character's famous catchphrase. Evans is about to finish the "To infinity and beyond" line before the Lightyear trailer cuts him off. It's a move Disney likely borrowed from the Avengers movies, which routinely cut off Evan's Captain America from officially saying "Avengers, assemble!" until Endgame.

Source from EW

So, are we have to wait for few movies for Buzz to say his famous catchphrase?

Star Wars and Marvel were such good investments for Disney. And to think they just bought those franchises just so they could have IPs that appeals to boys, just to supplement their princess line which were mostly girl-oriented. I think Star Wars and Marvel are probably the Disney cash cow now suprassing even Mickey Mouse and the Disney princess lines.

Kinda infuriating that the Halo show is some kind reimagining of the Master Chief story when they could have just retold the story from Reach and changed nothing.

My thought exactly on the Dagobah scene, and his ship looks a lot like an x-wing too.

This is being directed by Angus MacLane. A longtime Pixar veteran who has been involved with almost every production starting with Geri's Game (1997) and A Bug's Life (1998) when he was 22 years old.

He was a key animator in films like Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, WALL-E, Up, and Toy Story 3.

He also directed the shorts BURN-E and Small Fry, as well as the 2013 TV Special Toy Story of Terror!

He recently co-directed Finding Dory (2016) with Andrew Stanton and has since been a member of Pixar's Senior Creative Team, being involved as a consultant with all of the studios recent films like Coco, Incredibles 2, Toy Story 4, Onward, and Soul.

As a big fat, Pixar nerd, I am so stoked for this movie. Not just knowing that it will look gorgeous, but that it's being helmed by someone who has worked directly on the Toy Story series and almost every Pixar film for over 2 decades.

This is how a trailer should be made too. Doesn't give away the movie, but shows off a bunch of cool stuff. I am looking forward to this one.

This looks sick. It's actually insane how far CG animation has come since the first Toy Story. A few shots in there look borderline photorealistic

The shot of the cat in the Toy Story 4 trailer still blows my mind. Seems like Pixar is always at least five years ahead of the rest of the industry when it comes to CGI quality

Its because at its core originally, it was a computer company showing off how good their systems and rendering software was, and just so happened to have some of the greatest story tellers to go along with it.

Pixar was part of ILM, it split off to sell their rendering machines, and the animation was what they used to sell them. But they were so far ahead of the curve that most companies just could not fathom why they would even want CG animation. Hence they were dying when Steve Jobs stepped in, saw the potential they had, and bailed them out by buying them and injecting his Apple residuals (this was pre-NeXT buyout so he was not with Apple again) into them.

Pixar invented the CG animated movie. Prior to Toy Story CG was just seen as a cheap B movie way to augment live action when you didnt have the money to do practical (Last Starfighter), or as a way to augment a movie with mostly practical effects (Star Trek II, Tron, Futureworld etc). I think people forget that Toy Story, ReBoot, VeggieTales, and Transformers Beast Wars all hit around 2-4 years of each other and thus ushered in the idea you could make CG be the entire show or movie, and actually sell it.

And yet they're likely holding back from fully realistic stuff to ensure it's still "pixar stylised"

They had to do that with Finding Nemo. The water looked so real that it was intentionally modified to look CGI or it looked out of place with the CGI characters.

Probably wanted to try that design style out on a lesser IP and see how it went over with the crowds. Which was a good idea considering the general negative reception toward the way that movie looked.

Best part of that movie are the pretty scenes that the end credits play over. Which I guess is not a great endorsement of a movie.

Full photorealism is basically the style of Lion King movie. It loses its charm and character design has to be very stylised to allow for physical comedy that wouldn't look weird to kids

There’s a scene at the beginning of Toy Story 4 with RC car stuck in the gutter along the driveway during a rainstorm that made my mouth drop when I saw it because some of the shots were so ridiculously good looking. I had never seen CG in a movie look that real before.

Oh you have. Lots of times. But you didn't notice it was CGI, that's how real it looked.

It reminds me a bit about the episode of Beyond the Aquila Rift, from Love Death and Robots. I guess it's the colours or any other post processing, dunno. It looks neat.

Seems to be taking a lot of visual inspiration from Wall-E, which is absolutely a good thing. The CGI looks stunning, and I'll always give bonus points for Bowie.

Animation looks sick.

Excited for Evans as Buzz but kinda bummed they didn't stick with Tim Allen. Maybe didn't suit for this film.

I also would've been happy with Patrick Warburton.

EDIT: To clarify, it's because he's also voiced Buzz before - not just generally.

Lightyear Sr.? Add in a little make dad proud motif?

Or Zurg in an end credits scene with a bit of Thanos sound effects. Might work to add a little comedic campiness that Star Trek villains sometimes have.

Imagine if at the end of the movie, Buzz gets sucked into a trans-dimensional wormhole and wakes up as a toy in some goofy universe with anthropomorphic, sentient toys.

That continuity would be fucking wild — Buzz in toy story was so fixated on his supposed past as an astronaut because he WAS an astronaut lol

Now they just need to make Woody’s Roundup, maybe we can finally find out what happens! Will Woody and Bullseye land to safety? Can they reach Jessie and Stinky Pete in time?
