The trailer for the new Buzz Lightyear movie is here, and he’s gotten a bit of a glow up

Seriously Buzz, who does your brows?

If there’s been a rocket shaped hole in your heart ever since we said goodbye to Woody, Buzz and the gang for the final time in Toy Story 4, this may be the moment you’ve been waiting for.

In keeping with the recent Disney trend of character origin stories, Lightyear will follow the journey 0f Buzz, the young test pilot who inspired the toy we first saw trying to catapult himself out of Andy’s bedroom via Hot Wheels track back in 1995.

Taking over from Tim Allen, Chris Evans will voice Buzz in this new prequel. If you’re hoping for something Toy Story-esque, perhaps featuring an overtly flatulent sheriff (shout out Stinky Pete), bear in mind this story isn’t toy related. It looks a bit more serious and even has a slowed down, emotive version of Bowie’s Starman to set the scene. Speaking on Twitter, Chris Evans expressed his gratitude for being chosen to be part of the new film.

Will you be buying a ticket to infinity and beyond this summer? Or would you rather stick to what you know with a good aul reliable Toy Story marathon? Either way, we’re sure there’ll be a lot of BUZZ around this new origin story. Get it? GET IT? Sorry, I’ll let myself out.
