(CNN Spanish) — “Cabin pressurization begins. We prepare for the ignition“. Fans of toy story (and all of Disney Pixar in general), are you ready for Buzz Lightyear to take off?
This week it will hit theaters Lightyear, one of the most anticipated animated films of the season and of the year. And it is not for less, because we will have one of Andy’s favorite toys as the protagonist.
However, the plot of the film will have nothing to do with Buzz’s toy facet (at least as far as we know). This Pixar film will tell a story that intersects with Toy Story in a certain way, but that will make science fiction and space travel shine.
Do you want to know more about it? Below, we give you all the details.
All you need to know about Lightyear
If you are a follower of toy story, surely you remember that the Buzz Lightyear toy is based on a Buzz Lightyear movie that Andy saw. So what we will have in front of us is that movie that Andy was watching.
“The Buzz Lightyear toy that lived in Andy’s room was an action figure based on a movie Andy saw, and it was finally time for the rest of the world to see that movie, too.” noted Pixar it’s a statement.
Therefore, while in the Toy Story saga we see Buzz’s existential questioning about whether he is a toy or a space ranger and his acceptance of that reality, in Lightyear we can see the character’s development as a star ranger, which makes the film in a science fiction movie.
“In particular, the film draws inspiration from the sci-fi movies of my youth. The two most important things to me are that it look cinematic (with lots of shadows and high-contrast camera work), and that the world has the feeling of being huge,” said Angus MacLane, director of Lightyearwho has previously participated in the animation of films such as toy story 2, toy Story 3, Finding Nemo Y Upand also co-directed Finding Dory.
The film will begin with Buzz and his companions on a planet where they have been trapped for a year. But, after that time, they prepare to perform the first hyperdrive test flight.
The plan was for the off-planet flight to last only four minutes; however, by activating the hyperspeed, Buzz breaks the space-time barrier and reaches another planet, where he realizes thanks to an “acquaintance” (the granddaughter of Alisha Hawthorne, one of Buzz’s star companions) that more than 60 years have passed.
These have been the main advances dubbed into Spanish that Pixar has presented on Lightyear:
