The new Pixar Film, titled “the original Buzz Lightyear,’ is a story that explores the life of the “Toy Story” character which was originally voiced by Tim Allen in the four “Toy Story” movies.
Evans explained the role in a tweet, writing: “Just to be clear, this isn’t Buzz Lightyear the toy. This is the origin story of the human Buzz Lightyear that the toy is based on.”
