Chris Evans On “Buzz Lightyear” Casting

1 Comment

A major announcement, even amidst the dozens of others at the Disney Investor Day this past week, was that of Pixar’s “Lightyear” project.

The film is a kind of spin-off of the “Toy Story” franchise, a big sci-fi blockbuster epic helmed by Angus MacLane (“Toy Story of Terror”) which follows ‘Buzz Lightyear’ – not the toy voiced by Tim Allen but the character that inspired the toy line within the “Toy Story” screen universe.

As a result, Chris Evans will take on the voice role of this film’s ‘Buzz Lightyear’. Speaking about his casting on Instagram, Evans seeked to clear things up about how this project came to him:

“Working with Pixar is a dream come true. I’ve been a massive fan of their films since the very beginning. My team could barely contain their excitement when they told me that Pixar had a pitch for me. All they said was Buzz Lightyear.

I didn’t know what that meant, since Tim Allen is Buzz Lightyear, and no one could ever touch his performance. I needed to know how this character was different and why this story was worth telling.

I can say two things with absolute confidence: 1. I didn’t stop smiling through the ENTIRE pitch. Ear to ear. 2. Everyone can rest easy. And get very excited. Trust me when I say that they REALLY know what they’re doing over there. This one is gonna special, and it doesn’t step on a single thing.”

Fans of Tim Allen have not taken the news lightly on social media. “Lightyear” is presently on course to hit cinemas on June 17th 2022.

I wish more actors would communicate reassurances like this, especially with the seemingly never ending amount of reboots and spinoffs from cherished and beloved characters.

When I was Young I Played Video Games

1 Comment

“Video Games” is a nostalgic and bittersweet song from the album Mixtape for the Milky Way by jeremy messersmith. The papercraft video was animated by fellow video game fan Eric Power.

Working on this video was a true joy. I’ve been playing video games since the mid 80’s when I first got a hold of an Atari. Since then, they have been a part of many cherished memories with friends as well as solo adventures. When we were talking about the making of this video, I asked jeremy if we should make up our own games or straight up feature the ones we grew up with. We decided to just go for it and each made lists of some of our favorites. This proved to be a very difficult curation, as my intention was not just to show a random selection of games, but to also choose moments within those games that had a particular significance to us while also going hand in hand with the song. I hope you all enjoy!

EXCLUSIVE: Star Trek Fan Art Gets Officially Licensed For Tee Shirts And More

1 Comment

The world of Star Trek merch design just got a whole lot bigger. Unlicensed fan art has always been something celebrated by the Star Trek community, but this is the first time that fan artists are selling their Star Trek art on tee shirts and other goods under official sanction from CBS.

Supporting independent artists

A new deal between CBS and TeePublic, a website where artists can sell their designs on tee shirts, hoodies, stickers, mugs, and more, has resulted in the approval of dozens of new Star Trek designs. TeePublic is the world’s largest marketplace for independent creators to sell their work on the highest quality merchandise. Every purchase of a newly licensed Star Trek design supports the artist who created it.

Small independent artists can have a difficult time selling their work that celebrates Star Trek due to legal issues surrounding the sale of copyrighted works and difficulties in obtaining an official license such as cost and availability. This first-of-its-kind arrangement between CBS and fan artists opens up a whole new world for Star Trek merchandise.

Get 31% off these designs and more at the TrekMovie TeePublic store!

A new shirt for the con?

TeePublic reached out to us here at TrekMovie to create the first web store full of these newly licensed designs. If you order now and choose expedited shipping, you’re guaranteed to get your new tee in time for Star Trek Las Vegas later this month. Plus, TrekMovie fans get 31% off for the first 72 hours to celebrate the grand opening of our storefront. That means $20 classic tees are now selling for $14!

The shirts can be ordered in a male or female fit, various styles from classic to v-neck, in multiple colors, and in sizes from S to XL. CBS have just approved the first batch of Star Trek designs for sale, but be sure to keep an eye on the store for new shirts that come in.

Check out the Star Trek Vinyl, Crew Shirt, and Blueprint designs in the TrekMovie store.
