Voiced by Chris Evans, Buzz Lightyear embarks on a sci-fi action-adventure after getting marooned on a hostile planet located 4.2 million light-years away from Earth, alongside his commander and crew. Throughout the movie, Buzz’s efforts to return everyone home lead them far into the future, where they encounter evil robots.
