Buzz Lightyear hit the headlines again recently thanks to the new Pixar Popcorn short, To Fitness and Beyond. In the short, Buzz Lightyear attempts to lead Bonnie’s toys in an exercise class, but things keep going wrong. Returning characters in the short included Mr. Potato Head, Forky, Hamm, Rex, Slinky Dog, and the Little Green Men.
It would seem that the Buzz Lightyear workout may be catching on as Pixar have just shared how to follow in the Space Rangers footsteps and do your very own Buzz workout:
This is working out…with style! Stream the Pixar Popcorn short, To Fitness and Beyond, now on #DisneyPlus.
Of course, this isn’t the last time we’re going to see Buzz at Pixar. Lightyear is an upcoming film set to release next year that works as a sort of spin-off of the Toy Story franchise. The film will follow Buzz Lightyear the pilot (who went on to inspire the toy) and details how a young test pilot became the Space Ranger that everyone knows him as today.
Despite causing a bit of controversy with the casting of Chris Evans as Buzz, it isn’t the first time that the character hasn’t been voiced by Tim Allen. Patrick Warburton famously played Buzz in the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command television show.
Disney and Pixar have clarified that Chris Evans is not replacing the voice of Tim Allen as the toy version of Buzz, he is playing the human counterpart the toy is based on and that’s where his role will end.
