Lightyear, Toys for Man-Hero – Culture & Shows

“Beyond infinity and beyond” is the unforgettable motto of Buzz Lightyear, the brave toy astronaut, icon, along with cowboy Woody from the Pixar world of Toy Story. A phrase that could not be missing in the new animated Disney Pixar film that brings the astronaut out of the world of toys to a galactic human adventure originating in “Lightyear – The true story of Buzz” by Angus MacLane (former co-director of ” Alla research of Dory) “arrives in theaters from June 15 with Walt Disney Company Italia.
Captain America Chris Evans dubbed the protagonist: “With this film we have the opportunity to find characters we already know and to explore them deeper, with a more nuanced interpretation. We know Buzz as a toy hero., Who had little doubt because he “knew that he had a purpose. It is interesting to make him human and to confront him with the burden of another weight, the uncertainty, the consequences also for others, of his actions and choices,” the actor explains at the conference. international streaming -. I’ve always loved Buzz, the other characters, and the whole Toy Story world. It’s a saga that has revolutionized animated history. “
Equally enthusiastic about the film is the Italian voice of the main character, Alberto Boubakar Malanchino (Doc – in your hands): “What I like best about Buzz’s story is how you tell the value of collaboration and friendship – he explains at the press conference Roman with the other Italian voice actors -.
In a world where we are all more divided, team spirit saves you. Then it is important that we talk about the fallibility of man, about how to face his faults. It’s nice that we’re starting to ignore some toxicity in certain alpha male heroes. “
In the tale, we find Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear, commander and friend Alisha Hawthorne, and a crew of more than a thousand scientists and technicians on their way home after their final mission. But an accident causes the crew to be stranded on a treacherous planet. In a short time, a colony was born where people try to live as peacefully as possible (even Alisha finds a partner with whom she starts a family), while Buzz continues to indulge tirelessly and feel guilty for what happened. , between time fluctuations, ‘enemies’ and decades that go by, experimenting with space crystals that can bring everyone home. A mission where he wants the car for his Sox robot cat and that of sui generis space students, such as Alisha’s granddaughter, Izzy, the troublemaker Mo and former convict over 60 Darby. The film, which focuses on improving inclusion and diversity (“Science fiction, especially with series like Star Trek has always predicted society in this sense,” the director recalls), made headlines well before the release of Pixar employees’ open letter against the decision to to cut the first gay kiss in the franchise, the family kiss that Alisha and her partner share: a protest that prompted Disney to reinstate the scene in the film.
“We wanted to show a real family relationship beyond gender, and having a kiss was also very important,” explains producer Galyn Susman. “Disney staff have done very well in protesting: all families must be represented, being seen changing things, making you feel welcome,” emphasizes Esther Elisha, Alisha’s Italian voice.
In the rich circle of voices there is also Taika Waititi (for the robot cat Sox, in Italian with Ludovico Tersigni’s voice), which we will find in cinemas in a few weeks as director of the new Marvel chapter “Thor: Love and Thunder”: “Studio always the way Pixar structures the story in their films … annoyingly enough, they are always right in the choices they make “observes the actor and director with a smile. Finally, to sign the soundtrack instead, there is the American composer of Italian descent Michael Giacchino, already the Oscar winner for another Disney masterpiece, Up.
