Tim Allen Breaks Silence On Lightyear And Shares What He Really Thinks About The Toy Story Spinoff

We all know Buzz Lighter as the lovable space ranger who teams up with Woody in their many Toy Story adventures, but what exactly inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy line? Well, you can find out now, as the Buzz Lightyear solo movie called lightyear is out, but it stars Marvel actor Chris Evans as the title character. A Buzz Lightyear movie without Tim Allen? If you’re curious how the Santa Clause actor feels about that, he has decided to break his silence on the subject.

lightyear is all about the space ranger who inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy line. So it’s understandable why Pixar decided to go for a different voice actor for the role of the young test pilot. As for how Tim Allen feels about that decision, he said to ExtraTV that while he would have loved to have taken part in a standalone Buzz Lightyear story, he knew lightyear would have nothing to do with the Toy Story movies:

I’ve stayed out of this, because it has nothing to do with [the original films]. We talked about [a standalone story] many years ago. It came up in one of the sessions. I said, ‘What a fun movie that would be.’ We spoke about it. But the brass that did the first four movies is not this. It’s a whole new team that really had nothing to do with the first movies.
