Friday, June 17, 2022- Disney released the highly anticipated movie Lightyear. The “Buzz” about Disney’s newest release is being talked about to Infinity and Beyond. Lightyear is the backstory for the whole Toy Story franchise and one we all have been waiting to hear. In the first Toy Story movie, Buzz mentions to Woody that he was a toy from Andy’s favorite movie, that movie IS Lightyear! Of course Disney would make a movie for us from one line out of a movie, and what seems like lightyears later, we are finally getting to know what makes Buzz so out of this world. Disney is celebrating around the parks by blasting off in some big ways- don’t miss your chance to get on this spaceship and celebrate!
