Disney has given Cartoon Brew exclusive access to a brief scene that didn’t make the final cut of Pixar’s Lightyear, which touches down on digital and Disney+ on Wednesday before the 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD releases on September 13.
In the animatic for the cut scene, introduced by director Angus MacLane and with dialogue recorded by Chris Evans and Keke Palmer, we see what would have been the first meeting between the Space Ranger and his partner’s daughter Izzy. We’re also treated to the charming origin of Buzz’s “To infinity and beyond” catch phrase, although the clip’s exclusion from the final film means it’s probably not canon.
Lightyear is the origin story of the Buzz Lightyear character, a fictional movie hero who inspired Andy’s newest toy in the original Toy Story movie. In Lightyear, Buzz is a stalwart Space Ranger who, along with an entire ship of colonists, is marooned on a hostile planet millions of light-years away from Earth.
