Upcoming sci-fi adventure Lightyear will tell the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero that inspired the toy inside the iconic Toy Story film franchise.

A 'film within a film' - Lightyear is something that Andy and his friends from the Toy Story universe would have gone to watch in the cinemas before picking up their very own version of the action figure - and now we're getting our chance to check the movie out for ourselves.

Everybody's favourite space Ranger is marooned on a hostile planet 4.2 million light-years from Earth, alongside his commander and their crew, including his adorable robotic companion cat, Sox. Trying to find a way back home through space and time, matters are complicated when Zurg arrives on the scene with a mysterious agenda and army of ruthless robots on his side.

Chris Evans (Avengers Assemble) lends his voice to Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear, whilst Uzo Aduba plays commander and best friend Alisha Hawthorne and, Peter Sohn voices robot feline Sox. Keke Palmer, Taika Waititi and Dale Soules play Junior Zap Patrol's Izzy Hawthorne, Mo Morrison and Darby Steel respectively, with the villainous Zurg being brought to life by James Brolin.

The voice cast is rounded out by Mary Macdonald-Lewis as onboard computer I.V.A.N., Isaih Whitlock Jr. as Commander Burnside, Efren Ramirez as Airman Diaz and, Keira Hairston as Young Izzy.

Angus MacLane (co-director of Finding Dory) serves as director here, with Galyn Susman as producer and award-winning composer Michael Giacchino (The Batman) putting together the score.

I couldn't be more excited to see this movie. Disney and Pixar have an incredible knack of tailoring their films not just for a younger audience, but for the adults that will undoubtedly be dragged to the cinemas with their children to check it out.

This new trailer showcases the great humour that has gone into making the film, as well as the incredible passion and detail which clearly comes from a sense of love from all of those involved.

I have a feeling that Lightyear is going to be one of this year's most talked about releases. To infinity and beyond!
