The lead character in the Disney and Pixar film series Toy Story is Buzz Lightyear, who is mostly voiced by Tim Allen. He is a Superhero toy action figure that is based on the Space Ranger from the in-universe media franchise, which includes a blockbuster feature film and animated series.
Despite the fact that his companion Woody serves as the series’ main protagonist in each of the four animated films that make up the franchise, he is the only Toy Story character to appear in any of them. In Toy Story (1995), unlike most other toys, Buzz Lightyear struggles to accept that he is only a toy after first believing himself to be the “real” Buzz Lightyear.
Buzz meets other Buzz Lightyear action figures from the toy line in Toy Story 2 (1999), including the character’s in-universe father and archenemy Emperor Zurg. Ten years later in Toy Story 3 (2010), Buzz explores a romance with cowgirl figure Jessie, and his Spanish mode is also revealed. Finally, in Toy Story 4 (2019), Buzz discovers his inner voice and bids Woody goodbye as he departs to be with Bo Peep.
The fictional Buzz Lightyear, Space Ranger character from the 2000 direct-to-video film Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins and later spin-off television series Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, both voiced by Patrick Warburton and Allen, respectively, also makes an appearance.
Chris Evans provided the voice for this character in the 2022 spin-off movie Lightyear, which explored the origin story of the Toy Story characters through an in-universe movie they would watch (as was previously shown in the opening scene of The Adventure Begins). James Brolin also provided the voice for Zurg, an elderly, cynical Buzz from an alternate future (a separate character from Emperor Zurg).

Conception And Creation Of Buzz.
Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, the second astronaut from Apollo 11 to set foot on the Moon, is remembered by the name Buzz Lightyear. Lunar Larry was the character’s original working name, but the Pixar producers thought it sounded “too wacky.”
During a speech at NASA, Aldrin acknowledged the honor by bringing out a Buzz Lightyear figurine. The DVD commemorating Toy Story’s tenth anniversary contains a clip of this. Aldrin didn’t get paid to use his moniker as an endorsement.
Director of Toy Story John Lasseter discussed the creation of Lightyear, saying he wanted to make an action figure in the G.I. Joe line for the movie and chose a spaceman figure. Lasseter cites the Apollo astronauts as an inspiration for his design, citing their white suits, clear helmets, skullcaps, and communication equipment in particular.
Lasseter and his wife both had a favorite color scheme, which was either purple or fluorescent green. It’s also thought that Ed Kemmer, a television actor, served as a model for Lightyear’s appearance. One of the first science-fiction television shows on American television, Space Patrol, featured Kemmer as Commander Buzz Corry.
Initially, when a screen test was being created, producers wanted Billy Crystal to voice Buzz. After seeing the first movie, he admitted that turning down the job was “the biggest mistake of his career.”

Buzz Lightyear – The Well-known Space Ranger.
Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.
This version of Buzz Lightyear has a different personality from the one in Toy Story.
A framing device depicts Andy’s bedroom, where all of his toys are about to watch the VHS recording of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command (which takes place after Toy Story 2). In the movie, Buzz Lightyear and Warp Darkmatter, members of the noosphere-dwelling race known as Little Green Men (L.G.M.), who serve as scientists for Star Command’s Universe Protection Unit, are looking for three missing Little Green Men.
They find the missing L.G.M. at a secret laboratory belonging to a group run by the villainous Emperor Zurg. Zurg’s robots are kept occupied while Buzz and Warp enter and retrieve the L.G.M. However, Warp appears to be killed when Zurg activates the self-destruct mechanism, pinning him under debris and forcing Buzz to flee moments before the explosion. Buzz is unwilling to have a spouse since he feels guilty for having survived Warp’s death and is afraid Zurg would kill them too.
Later, he runs across Commander Nebula, who offers Buzz her as his new companion and introduces him to Mira Nova, a genius ranger and the princess of the planet Tangea that Buzz had saved from Zurg. Nova is practically unstoppable because to her “ghosting” ability, but Buzz is still hesitant. After that, Buzz stops Booster, a kind-hearted janitor who aspires to one day join the space rangers, from getting fired.
A new henchman named Agent Z shows up in Zurg’s fortress in the meantime, carrying a robotic arm with multiple weapons. When Zurg learns that the L.G.M. homeworld’s enormous sphere known as the Uni-Mind is what causes their telepathic connection, he sends his new agent to find it and capture it. A new robot soldier named XR is created by Star Command’s L.G.M.s and offered to Buzz as a buddy because he can be fixed after being damaged.
A psychic communication informing them about the Zurg attack on their homeworld follows. Agent Z attacks Buzz and XR as soon as they land on the L.G.M. planet, destroying XR as Zurg takes the Uni-Mind. The L.G.M. rebuilt XR because they couldn’t think clearly, but they ended up giving him a mind of his own. Despite Mira’s claim that a lone ranger could use the prototype Alpha-One to stop Zurg, Commander Nebula chooses to launch a full-scale assault on Planet Z.
In order to subjugate everyone to his whim, Zurg implants the Uni-Mind inside the “Mega-Ray” after corrupting it with his own wicked thoughts. In order to battle Zurg, Mira steals the Alpha-One prototype spacecraft. Buzz, who wanted to carry out her plan, pursues Mira in his own craft without realizing Booster and XR have stowed away.
After Buzz eventually captures Mira and places Alpha-One in the cargo compartment of his spacecraft, Booster and XR are found. Before activating Star Command, the Zurg’s Mega-Ray subverts numerous planets in fast succession. When Buzz, Mira, Booster, and XR learn that Zurg has abducted every member of the staff, including Nebula, they take off on Buzz’s Star Cruiser. Zurg detonates a bomb on Buzz’s ship using every weapon in Star Command’s armory. Just before the bomb explodes and the cruiser is destroyed, Buzz and the others manage to flee in the Alpha-One. Zurg thinks Buzz is deceased.
The ship accidentally crashes land on Planet Z thanks to Booster. Buzz issues the order for the others to go since he is determined to complete the job alone. When Agent Z exposes himself to be Warp—who, in addition to having faked his own death, had been secretly working for Zurg for years as a double agent—Buzz is rendered helpless and brought to Zurg. A coded distress call to Mira, Booster, and XR is dictated by Buzz in his “final log entry.”
Buzz will be the target of Zurg’s Mega-Ray attack, but XR and Booster save him just in time. After Booster lands on Warp, Mira and he demolish his artificial arm. Prior to Buzz’s allies being able to arrest Zurg, Zurg flees while Buzz battles him. Warp is apprehended by Booster and XR, who then jump from Zurg’s exploding tower.
Zurg is temporarily rendered impotent and horrified as Mira uses her “ghosting” ability to force Buzz into the Uni-core Mind’s and return it to normal, liberating the imprisoned humans. The L.G.M. is once again united, and Warp is imprisoned for treachery.
XR, Mira, and Booster form a new squad dubbed “Team Lightyear” alongside Buzz as he finally admits he cannot work alone.

American computer-animated science fiction action-adventure movie Lightyear was released in 2022 by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios. The movie is a prequel to the Toy Story movie series.
The focus is on Buzz Lightyear, and the movie presents itself as a part of the Toy Story franchise in which Lightyear appears as a character.
The “Turnip,” a Star Command exploration ship, modifies course to look for indications of life on the uncharted planet T’Kani Prime. Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear, his commanding officer and best friend Alisha Hawthorne, and newbie Featheringhamstan scout the landing site after emerging from slumber.
They are attacked by alien lifeforms and attempt to flee, but Buzz accidentally alters the Turnip’s escape trajectory, resulting in the ship’s collapse despite his best attempts. Buzz offers to be the test pilot for the hyperspace fuel crystal they will need to develop to get back home, taking responsibility for their failure to escape and leaving the team stranded. The crew has built a new colony to carry out repairs after a year.
Due to temporal dilation, four years had elapsed on T’Kani Prime in place of the four minutes Buzz spent in flight on his disastrous first test trip. Alisha reveals that she recently got engaged to Kiko, a scientist she first met three years ago. She gives a robot therapist named Buzz Sox the appearance and programming of a cat.
Alisha orders Buzz to hold off on trying new crystal concoctions until they figure out another way to get the crew home, but Buzz takes the initiative and decides to carry out additional tests with Alisha’s reluctant support. Buzz returns after his final flight after a dozen failed tests to find Alisha has passed away from old age. She records a message for him in which she expresses her joy and welcomes him to her granddaughter Izzy.
Buzz is informed by her replacement, Commander Cal Burnside, that the colony has decided to stay on the planet and rely on a laser shield to defend it from dangerous natives outside. The colony has given up trying to restore lightspeed capabilities. Sox claims that he has been working on formulating a stable form of the crystal for the past 60 years. Buzz flees with Sox when Star Command sends personnel to decommission him, defying Burnside’s instructions to carry out one last test.
Buzz is able to test the new mixture and achieve hyperspeed with Sox’s assistance. He skips ahead another 22 years, meeting an adult Izzy there. She reveals that a horde of robots recently occupied T’Kani Prime and are now trying to get into the colony, which is at the moment being shielded by Burnside’s laser. She plans to attack a sizable ship from which the robots drop with a group of cadets led by Mo and Darby.
Buzz resolves to complete the task alone after witnessing the group’s incapability in battle after an encounter with one of the robots, but the others unintentionally accompany him on the quest. The party escapes on a ship called “Armadillo” from a nest of hostile bugs that they unintentionally disturb, but Zurg, the leader of the robots, shoots down the ship.
Buzz learns the significance of asking others for aid and invites Izzy, Mo, and Darby to work with him and Sox to complete the mission after searching a local mining complex for a small energy coil that will help them restore power to the ship.
Even though the group manages to get away from Zurg and his robots, the hyper crystal is lost as a result of his intervention. Then, Zurg captures Buzz and takes him aboard the cruiser, where he reveals that he is an older version of Buzz from an alternate future timeline that split upon Lightyear’s return to the planet following the successful hyperspace test. In this timeline, soldiers from the colony tried to arrest Buzz on Burnside’s orders without the robot army holding them back, forcing Buzz to flee into space.
Alternate Buzz and Sox made their getaway at top speed and used time travel to travel hundreds of years into the far future when they came across highly developed technology. To stop the Turnip from ever setting foot on T’Kani Prime and avoid stranding the spacecraft on the planet, he spent 50 years devising a technique to go back in time.
Old Buzz, known to the robots as B-Zurg, needs a new crystal to fuel his ship and complete his mission because his previous one ran out due to time travel and heavy use. He makes a request to his younger self. Buzz declines, understanding that accepting would destroy Izzy and Alisha’s friendship and their shared existence.
The alternate Sox, who is opposed to Zurg’s plan, knocks out Zurg as he tries to forcibly utilize the crystal himself. The alternate Sox then directs Buzz to the ship’s control room where he starts the self-destruct sequence before being crushed by a furious Zurg. Buzz and his team are able to flee the cruiser before it explodes following a wild assault on it.
Buzz’s ship is assaulted by Zurg once more as they crash-land back on the planet, and he then steals the crystal for himself. Buzz is compelled to blast the crystal, which results in an explosion that appears to kill Zurg, but with their assistance, he is able to save his squad from colliding with the planet’s surface.
Buzz ultimately embraces T’Kani Prime as his home once the fuel runs out. Burnside plans to imprison Buzz, Izzy, Mo, and Darby for their careless behavior, but he changes his mind after seeing Buzz’s valor in facing the robot fleet. Buzz surprisingly chooses Izzy, Mo, Darby, and Sox as his trainees after being given permission to reconstitute the Space Ranger Corps. Buzz and his gang set out on a new adventure with a new hyper crystal, they manufactured from the computer left behind after the mutiny.
