Lightyear of its English title is the first project from Pixar studios to receive the honors of a cinema broadcast.

Who is Buzz Lightyear?
Buzz Lightyear is a fictional hero from the Toy Story saga produced by Pixar studios and whose first film was released in 1995. In these films, it is more precisely a toy bearing the image of the fictional character of Buzz Lightyear, a Space Ranger. He lands for the first time in a child’s room without knowing his true nature. The character is directly inspired by astronaut Buzz Aldrin who took the first steps on the Moon with Neil Armstrong in 1969.
What is the synopsis of Buzz Lightyear?
In the movie Buzz Lightyear (2022), the space ranger makes his first flight for Star Command. Unfortunately, the mission goes wrong. Our hero is then propelled 62 years into the future and lands on a planet where machines have taken over. Stuck on this star, he will do everything in his power to return to his space-time. Meanwhile, the evil Emperor Zurg attempts to take over the universe and only Ranger Buzz Lightyear can stop him.
It is not the toy Buzz, hero of the first Toy Story that we find in this film, but the fictional character. The synopsis is completely disconnected from the “toy” saga. Nevertheless, “Buzz Lightyear” can be considered a cinematic work belonging to the diegesis of Toy Story, a film that Andy could have or could watch in his living room. The toy and the ranger share a common history, but are not the same entity.
