5. Is He Going To Be An Astronaut?
Buzz Lightyear claims to be a space ranger, who can shoot lasers and travel the galaxy. However, if this movie is going to be based around a real human, and be based around things we can all relate with, then that isn’t something that will be possible.
So the question is, what job will the human version of Buzz actually have? The most likely option seems to be that he will be an astronaut, as this would explain him being able to head out into space in a realistic manner. Pixar has stated he will be a ‘young test pilot’ but that could easily link him into this role.
4. Playing Into The Pixar Theory
The Pixar Theory is certainly a fun one, with a lot of fans believing that every single Pixar film all links together. If the decision is made to keep Buzz as a real space ranger who fights aliens and travels the galaxy, this could be a great way of making the theory a reality.
Seeing him travel into the world of Monsters Inc. or into space with Wall-E would certainly open that opportunity up. Even if it’s just background glimpses, it would provide even more opportunity for the theory to be real, but that remains to be seen.
3. Will Tim Allen Appear?
When it comes to Buzz Lightyear, the voice that everyone knows and recognizes for this role is Tim Allen. There was serious controversy when it was announced he wouldn’t be involved in this project, but the movie isn’t going to be about the toy itself, which is where Tim’s voice comes in.
The film is focusing on the human character that the toy was based on, but it would certainly be interesting to see whether or not the toy makes a cameo appearance at the end of the movie. This would allow Tim Allen to have a small role, continuing his link with the franchise.
2. Will Other Toy Story Characters Make Cameo Appearances?
It isn’t just the toy version of Buzz Lightyear that people are hoping to see either. Anytime the stories and characters from this franchise are involved in something, people want to see the entire gang if possible. While this movie might be focused on humans and the real version of Buzz, there’s no doubt that Pixar could fit the characters in for cameo roles.
This is a spin-off movie for the franchise and there’s no doubt going to be a large portion of the audience that wants to see some of the Toy Story characters, and will likely be disappointed if none of them appears.
1. Why Hasn’t This Been Mentioned Before?
There have been four Toy Story movies now, and Buzz Lightyear has been one of the lead characters in every single one of them. So one of the big questions is how this situation was never brought up before? Woody’s past was showcased heavily, revealing exactly why he was created.
But Pixar has made out that Buzz was simply just a very cool space toy in the past. It made sense that he was in that role as well, as there are plenty of toys that are just awesome. But it will certainly be interesting to see whether or not there’s an explanation as to how it was never linked before.
