The release of the Pixar film Lightyear is set for June 17, 2022, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a jump on viewing some of the books which were recently revealed. Lightyear is a sci-fi action-adventure and the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear (voice of Chris Evans)—the hero who inspired the toy. The film reveals how a young test pilot became the Space Ranger that we all know him to be today.
You can now order select titles from Amazon and Chronicle Books. However, most book titles will not be released until late April 2022. Some great-looking covers were revealed, but the Izzy Hawthorne Destiny Awaits cover caught our eye the most – which book are you most excited about?
