Ahead of the theatrical release of Disney and Pixar’s new movie Lightyear – telling the backstory of the famous astronaut from Pixar’s beloved Toy Story franchise – Disney Plus invites fans to explore the history of Buzz Lightyear while getting a sneak peek at the making of the film.
Pixar Animation Studios’ new documentary, Beyond Infinity: Buzz and the Journey to Lightyear, explores the evolution of the character, tracing Buzz Lightyear’s route from hero to toy.
Featuring filmmakers, storytellers, artists and members of Lightyear’s voice cast—including star Chris Evans— Beyond Infinity: Buzz and the Journey to Lightyear details how Buzz’s original action-figure design was realized and how that look was translated years later into a live-action hero.
Beyond Infinity is directed by Tony Kaplan and produced by Sureena Mann.
Lightyear opens in theaters on June 17. The film is directed by Angus MacLane and produced by Galyn Susman.
