To Infinity… and Beyond! Actor and comedian Tim Allen (“Home Improvement,” “Galaxy Quest,” “The Santa Clause”) visited Walt Disney World‘s upcoming Toy Story Land expansion recently, and found time to say hello to his alter-ego Buzz Lightyear!
Allen was in Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park to shoot special TV segments dedicated to Toy Story Land, scheduled to air this Wednesday, May 2nd on ABC.
Tim Allen portrayed the voice of Buzz Lightyear in all three “Toy Story” movies from Disney/Pixar, plus numerous animated shorts and the fourth feature entry in the series, due out in the summer of 2019. Mr. Allen will appear with Mr. Lightyear on “Good Morning America” and “Nightline” this Wednesday. Additionally, ABC’s “The View” and “The Chew” will feature stories about the highly-anticipated Toy Story Land.
The exclusive access starts with a live welcome from the all-new 11-acre Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World Resort, hosted by Paula Faris. Inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story” films, the new land will transport guests into the adventurous outdoors of Andy’s backyard where they will feel like they have shrunk to the size of a toy.
Last week Tim Allen took to his personal Twitter account to pose alongside his famous Space Ranger counterpart.
