In an article by insider.com, Docter said that he has long been luring Evans to star in various animated films and discovered that his voice is the perfect fit for the iconic character Buzz Lightyear.

Evans also took to Twitter sharing his excitement about the new film saying “I still don’t have words.”

The animated movie is set to hit theaters on June 17, 2022, and is described by Pixar as the definitive story of the original Buzz Lightyear where the toy from the movie “Toy Story” was inspired from. Actor Tim Allen voiced Buzz Lightyear in all four “Toy Story” movies from 1995 to 2019.
