American actor Chris Evans expressed his excitement as Disney dropped the trailer of Buzz Lightyear animated movie on Wednesday.
The 40-year-old actor has been signed in to voice the main character in the animated superhero movie — an astronaut who inspired the beloved Toy Story figure Buzz Lightyear.
Chris Evans, famously known for his role as Captain American, will be portraying the hero, Buzz Lightyear, in Disney and Pixar’s “Lightyear.”
“Animated movie [sic] were an enormous part of my childhood. They were my escape. My adventures. My dreams,” Chris Evans said in a tweet.
“They were my first window into the magic of storytelling and performing. To @pixar and @AngusMacLane: ‘Thank you’ doesn’t even come close #Lightyear.”
Chris Evans packed his excitement in a note attached with his tweet. “The phrase ‘a dream come true’ gets thrown around a lot, but I’ve never meant it more in my life,” the actor’s note read.
“Anyone who knows me knows that my love for animated films runs deep. I can’t believe that I get to be a part of the Pixar family and work with these truly brilliant artists who tell stories unlike anyone else. Watching them work is nothing short of magic. I pinch myself every day.”
The animated movie “Lightyear,” is set to be screened in theatres in 2022. The movie tells the story of Buzz Lightyear, a Space Ranger.
The trailer begins with Buzz Lightyear present at a training facility and is seen dressed up in his iconic suit.
