We recently reported on a possible retheming of Space Mountain inspired by Pixar’s Lightyear (2022). However, this is still speculative, and many fans remain skeptical about the news, as Disney officials have not addressed this rumor.

Chris Evans recently visited Disney California Adventure to promote Pixar’s Lightyear, in which he takes on the role of Buzz Lightyear. The photo shoot at the Park quickly went viral, with Guy Fieri hilariously recreating the “not photoshopped” pictures.

Fans of this character can now head to their favorite movie theater to enjoy this new story, starring Chris Evans and directed by Angus MacLane. A synopsis of the film reads:

From Disney and Pixar comes an animated sci-fi action-adventure — the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear (voice of Chris Evans), the hero who inspired the toy. “Lightyear” follows the legendary space ranger on an intergalactic adventure alongside ambitious recruits, Izzy, Mo and Darby, and his robot companion Sox. As this motley crew embark on their toughest mission yet, they must learn to work as a team to escape the evil Zurg and his dutiful robot army who are never far behind.
