The “Toy Story” series is one of the most popular animated films ever. The reasons for this are obvious: the films are incredibly detailed and fast-paced in terms of animation and staging, the characters – although they are toys – extremely lifelike and the tangible emotions that develop from them make “Toy Story 3” a real masterpiece did.
With “Lightyear’ one of the main characters from the ‘Toy Story’ franchise gets his own movie: Buzz Lightyear (originally from “The Gray Man”-Star Chris Evans spoken, while Tom Wlaschiha from “Game Of Thrones” can be heard in the German dubbing). After the sci-fi adventure about the iconic action figure only started in German cinemas on June 16, 2022, the film is already available as a Disney+ subscription from today.

In the prehistory “Lightyear’ we go with Buzz Lightyear actually into space, where we learn more about the background of the titular hero. The fact that the endless expanses are not a toy construction is because the action figure itself is not the center of the action, but the fictional human astronaut of the same name who served as inspiration for the toy.
Director Angus MacLane (“Finding Dory”) wanted to capture the sci-fi adventure that Andy may have seen from “Toy Story” and made him want to create his own buzz Lightyear to have. This is also the reason why in the original it is no longer the “Listen who’s hammering” star Tim Allen, but Marvel hero Chris Evans who dubs the brave Space Ranger.
You should only lower your expectations a little, because on the same playful and creative level as “Toy Story” is “Lightyear“ Ultimately not. The conclusion of the official DashFUN review is: “An impressively battered, albeit somewhat monotonous look as well as an amusing group of figures ‘Lightyear‘ into some sizable space action fun. In terms of storytelling, on the other hand, Pixar Animation Studios shows its unambitious side.”
Next to “Lightyear”, today on Disney+ with “Bob’s Burgers” a real series highlight is now in its twelfth round.
After “Bob’s Burgers – The Movie” started exclusively on Disney+ on July 13, 2022, the 12th season of “Bob’s Burgers” awaits you on the streaming service starting today. The cult animated series about the quick-service restaurant business of the chaotic-eccentric Belcher family is reminiscent not least of the grandiose first seasons of “The Simpsons” due to its unerring humor.

And while the yellow icons from Springfield have only been a shadow of themselves for a few years now, “Bob’s Burger” has taken over the reins and is regarded as an absolute highlight among animated sitcoms.
