"Lightyear" Teaser Trailer (and Turning Red, because...)


Recommended Posts

 

One of the things I love about Pixar is they don't need words to tell a story. (Another: they love good tunes.)

Put me down for Premier seats and popcorn.

 

Though first, I really, really, REALLY wanna see Turning Red.

Because - no spoilers - what happens in this sequence is terribly, horribly familiar.

Well, most of it.

 

...it also has the perfect needle drop to match the action...

I'm a tad confused.  Are they saying that, within the TOY STORY universe, the toy Buzz Lightyear was inspired by a "real" astronaut?  Or are they saying that the toy Buzz was inspired by a popular Buck Rogers-like movie/cartoon character like we were led to believe in the first three TS movies?  'Cause that's quite a retcon if we've never heard of this "real" astronaut before now.  (Okay, qualification: I've never seen TS4, so apologies if it was all explained there.)

 

Either way, as a big fan of 1930s -1950s serial Sci-Fi, this looks very interesting.

According to the director and Chris Evans his very blonde and nuzzlable self in interviews: this is the "origin movie" for the tie-in toy. Hence why Evans voicing the movie, Warburton voicing the cartoon and Allen voicing the toy (in the movies) is still canon.

 

Which came first isn't explained, and isn't necessary. Given we've had two GI Joe movies, a Barbie movie with Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling is on the way, we've had MLP, She-Ra and Masters Of The Universe remakes, and there's even been a Battleships movie... it makes still sense if Evans' movie is the "reboot" for a beloved 1980/90s toy, maybe more these days.

 

And there's quite clearly some detailed love for the original showing through even in the trailer: note that Buzz's ship appears to be powered by "crystallic fusion". Pixar being Pixar, expect in-jokes and Easter Eggs a-go-go.

 

Still waiting on the cinema event of the decade though...

I suspect they're just waiting to see if Dwayne Johnson would like to star in a third jungle-related franchise.  (Or does Rampage make that four?)

My take-away from the Lightyear movie is that it is the movie or TV show, which inspired a children's cartoon, which in turn the toy from Toy Story is based upon.  So think of it like the 80s Ghostbusters toys were chiefly based upon the Real Ghostbusters cartoon, which were loosely based upon the live action movie...
