But, What movie did Andy see to wish he had a Buzz Lightyear toy? This was the question that Angus MacLane asked himself 21 years later (Finding Dory), director of Lightyear.

Lightyear tells the origins of Buzz, the hero who inspired the toy, and introduces us to the story of this legendary space ranger told as a exciting intergalactic adventure. Action and science fiction are the main ingredients of this animated film, but making bad decisions and their consequences are also central to the plot. A situation that many people have faced on occasion.

The film opens with the accomplished Buzz, his Major Alisha Hawthorne and a team of more than 1,000 scientists and technicians returning home from their last mission. About 4.2 million light-years from Earth, a sensor indicates that they are approaching an unexplored but potentially resource-rich planet. At that moment, Buzz decides to divert the scout ship’s course towards T’Kani Prime. A decision that does not turn out as he expected and for which he will have to bear the blame. The entire crew is marooned on a decidedly hostile planet and prepares to be there for quite a few years.
