Chris Evans voicing a new version of one of the Disney-Pixar’s most famous characters, Buzz Lightyear – in ‘Lightyear.’
First introduced in 1995’s “Toy Story,” Buzz was made famous thanks to Tim Allen’s voice performance.
“The first time you have to do that iconic line, ‘To Infinity and Beyond…,’ you kind of just do a shameless Tim Allen impression. It’s intimidating.
“But Angus [MacLane, the film’s director] and everyone at Pixar was so collaborative, and you kind of let them guide you. Eventually you feel comfortable enough to make your own tracks in the snow and find your own interpretation, while still using Tim Allen as the blueprint,” Evans told Variety.
