Following its 45+ day theatrical release window, Disney has announced the most recent Pixar movie, “Lightyear”. It will be available on Disneyplus.com/begin on Wednesday, August 3, 2022. Many nations worldwide, including the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Spain, and others, have confirmed the Disney+ release. Expect other nations to do the same.
The well-known Space Ranger is followed in the sci-fi action adventure “Lightyear.” He is stranded with his crew on a perilous planet 4.2 million light-years away from Earth. Buzz Lightyear, the hero who served as the inspiration for the toy, is the main character. As he looks for a way to travel through space and time to get back home, a group of enthusiastic recruits and his adorable robot cat buddy Sox joins Buzz. The mission is put in jeopardy by the arrival of Zurg, a powerful force with an army of cruel robots and a murky aim.
The movie’s director, Angus MacLane, remarked, “‘Lightyear’ looks wonderful on the big screen, of course. But we are so happy to present it to Disneyplus.com/start.” We spent years of our lives making this movie, and we’re really proud of it. We want as many people to hear about it as we can.
