Expected "Space Oddity," got something more satisfying for marrying with those images in the trailer.

Saw what looked like a nod to Dagobah in there.  Robot cat or flerken?

Diggin those totally-not-Z'Goks. Also how did this sneak under everyone's radar?

Confused on how to feel about this.  It's a real person who inspired the toy, but the toy is in present reality and the real person in the future?

Kinda glad there's no Tim Allen, who's grated on me in recent years.

Those aren't mutually exclusive. Being snarky about things making a billion dollars is kinda in these days.

Live action move in the universe of the Toy Story characters?

Garbage. Cloying and pandering. More flavorless bland pap for the masses without an original thought meant to cash in on feeble minded nostalgic morons. A mockery of art. A blasphemous effigy of humanity.

I'm glad you've seen it already!

Mind you, that very well could all prove to be true.  I'm just not sold on it being worthless from what we've seen so far (very little).

That's what I'm thinking. This is the character and movie that inspired the cartoon and toy in the Toy Story universe. Weird super-meta take on a character, but I am intrigued nonetheless.

I'm sure Chris Evans will be fine in the role, but I wish they'd brought back Patrick Warburton.  He did a great Buzz for the "Buzz Lightyear of Star Comman" animated series back in the early 2000s.
/It's a shame Pixar seems to want to bury that show, it was a quality program.
 
2021-10-27 10:06:54 PM  
Back when the first film was pitched, Buzz was described as a toy based on a sci-fi blockbuster movie.

This is that movie.

This looks like heaps of fun. Here's hoping the movie takes the tone of the trailer.

I still use the word "craters" as an expiative when around children because of that show.

the end of the movie closes showing that its just kids pretending and playing with these toys.

Grizwald: the end of the movie closes showing that its just kids pretending and playing with these toys.


Better idea, it ends with a tv screen turning off before showing an astronaut in living quarters.  A communicator comes on and tells him/her that they are approaching Mars.  The astronaut gets up and looks at a picture on the wall before leaving.  The picture is of him as a child holding his Buzz and Woody toys while sitting on a grown up Andy's lap.
 
2021-10-28 1:26:32 AM  
I'm kinda fangirling over the animation. Looks like some of the best Pixar has done yet. Also, they did give Buzz and bit of a plastic look, almost an homage to his Toy roots.
And how can you go wrong with Chris Pratt?
 
2021-10-28 2:03:48 AM  
Was that a Weyland-Yutani logo on his shirt?  If not, it was pretty close.

I'd say good call, but Patrick, gawd luv 'im, is a walking caricature, especially his voice, and I think they want a little more gravitas to the character.

So he's no longer a toy?

So far Disney has stayed away from the Pixar movies for their live action crap*.

*Except Jungle Book, that was pretty good. But the original wasn't that great to begin with, except for some of the songs.

Neither the "Jungle Book" nor its remake have anything to do with Pixar.

What if it's the reverse? A guy played with a buzz lightyear toy as a kid which inspired him to go to space?

So far I've noticed nods to Stargate, Farscape, Expanse, ET, SW, and the MCU (and of course Toy Story)

I kind of have mixed feelings on the animation style.  I don't think it works when Pixar blends photorealism with cartoonish exaggeration in the characters.  For example, this frame...

I think the two approaches end up competing and just don't blend well.  Same thing happened in the Pixar Dinosaur movie.  They rendered out beautiful photorealistic scenery and landscapes, but the cartoonish dinosaurs just looked weird in those environments.  It didn't help that the story was fairly generic with that one. I'd expect that to be better for the Lightyear movie.

I'm waiting for the gritty western reimagining, where Woody has gone all Jonah Hex.

That would be amazing, but Andy wouldn't have the toys as an adult, because he gave them to Bonnie at the end of Toy Story 3.

Bonnie was the toys' owner / creator of Sporky in Toy Story 4

So you'd actually want a female astronaut who turns out to be Bonnie.

And another half billion in China.  But really, how did they not come up with this earlier?  It's so obvious a story, especially since they did an origin story with Sully and Mike 8 years ago.  It's obvious now that somebody else has thought of it, of course.
