Yesterday, Disney announced a brand new behind-the-scenes documentary centered around Lightyear called Beyond Infinity: Buzz and the Journey to Lightyear.
Streaming on Disney+ on June 10, 2022, we’re not sure how long the documentary will be, but we assume it will be similar to, Embrace the Panda (the Turning Red documentary) which is just over 45 minutes.
The official press-release details are below.
Beyond Infinity: Buzz and the Journey to Lightyear
Pixar Animation Studios’ “Beyond Infinity: Buzz and the Journey to Lightyear” explores the evolution of an icon, tracing Buzz Lightyear’s route from toy, to actual Space Ranger.
Featuring filmmakers, storytellers, artists, and members of the “Lightyear” voice cast, the documentary details how Buzz’s original action-figure design was realized, and how that look was translated years later into a human hero.
Delving into the cultural impact of the galaxy’s most famous flying toy and his significance to Pixar filmmakers, this doc tries to grapple with what actually is beyond infinity. Directed by Tony Kaplan and produced by Sureena Mann, “Beyond Infinity” streams exclusively on Disney+ beginning June 10, 2022.
