About the film:

The origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero who inspired the toy. As Buzz tries to fix the mistake that left him and his crew marooned on a hostile planet, he does his first test flight for Star Command. It doesn’t go as expected, as he ends up time traveling 62 years into the future instead and must now find a way to return home with the help of a group of ambitious recruits and his robot companion, Sox, who together embark on an intergalactic adventure. However, when the evil Emperor Zurg threatens the universe’s safety along the way, Buzz may be its only hope to save it.

“a captivatingly spirited toon take on splashy live-action retro popcorn entertainment… balancing heroism and human fallibility with infectious warmth”

—David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter
