    Sounds more and more like a political stunt based on not a whole lot of truth.

    Okay, I got some info. The ads are sponsored by The Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease. Here is a link to the ad and some info.

    I'm still very skeptical.

    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    I had the opposite reaction to be honest. Well, not opposite. It just left me very confused.

    I don't get who this is for...? Like it genuinely baffles me that this exists at all. Like, it's got no formal relation to the Toy Story franchise, it's got a completely different tone and aesthetic to what Buzz Lightyear - in the setting of Toy Story the fictional universe - was based on, it's got no Tim Allen and the character is completely removed from the version of Buzz that audiences actually know so there's no real link there either.

    It doesn't even tie in with the shortlived Buzz Lightyear of Star Command tv show which was meant to be the thing the toy was kind of based on.

    It is literally a film built and founded on the notion of recognisable iconography rather than an actual property.

    The Pixar team have obviously put a lot of work and polish into it but I am just conceptually completely stumped by how this came to be. I'm sure it will make a bunch of money and will be... i don't know... perfectly fine? But I am so shaken that this exists, it's almost like a parody of what we would expect from Disney.

    It's not all that far off from other toy/movie franchises except that it is kind of backwards???

    TBH, I really like the animation and the it looks very interesting.

    According to a piece from Variety:

    However, “Lightyear” doesn’t follow the toy-sized, space-faring exploits of Tim Allen’s iconic character. Rather, the 2022 film introduces the “real-life” human astronaut whose adventures inspired the toy line seen in the “Toy Story” franchise.
    I'm not so pedantic to nitpick at the deepest lore of Toy Story, but at the same time I kinda hate how that's now a thing.

    Andy lives in a world with faster than light travel. I didn't need to know this and I reject it vehemently.

    The suits in marketing played themselves in greenlighting something this safe with the brand recognition. Imagine if they made something new?

    According to Disney, the movie is a prequel to the Toy Story franchise and the definitive origin story about the real Buzz Lightyear, whose fame - due to his exploits in space - would later inspire the creation of the Buzz Lightyear show/toy brand within said-universe. It's a neat concept IMO. And the creators stated that Tim Allen isn't voicing this Buzz because they consider the toy and the person he's based upon to be two separate people.
