Director Angus MacLane was very excited about this project and the potential to work with Evans on such a beloved property. He recently spoke with Fandango about how Lightyear is teaming up with Toy Story himself. It is not as simple as some internet commentators would like you to believe.
“There is one central idea about Buzz that we noticed when we really delved into looking at all of the Toy story movies: That Buzz has a disagreement over the nature of reality, ”MacLane began. ” In the first Toy story, he believes he’s a space ranger when Woody says he’s a toy. In the second movie, they had to bring in another Buzz Lightyear to revive that. And he had to convince his other self that HE was a toy. And there is Spanish Buzz in [Toy Story 3], then the interior monologue in [Toy Story 4]. It was the foundation of something we knew we had to pay for. “
“Buzz is someone who takes his job very seriously and follows the rules,” added the director. “And has an unwavering faith in himself. There are these tropes of this kind of hero that we recognize, nurture and play with. But he’s such an amalgamation of weird sci-fi clichés. you this more than one It was really the burden of [the] movie.”
