Chris Evans Teams Up With The Cast Of “Lightyear” At Its World Premiere

“Toy Story” Franchise is one of the highest-grossing franchises worldwide earning over 3 billion dollars in revenue. Spanning more than two decades, the Toy Story series became a part of our childhoods and many of us are happy to revisit all the characters. After four “Toy Story” films, audiences are seeing a new version of Buzz Lightyear, one of the main characters, in Pixar’s latest movie, Lightyear, on June 17. The movie portrays Buzz Lightyear, a space ranger embarking on an intergalactic adventure, leading a team of recruits in a fight against invaders.

On 8 June, Disney hosted a special premiere event at Hollywood’s EI Captain Theatre to celebrate Pixar Animation Studio’s 26th feature film, “Lightyear”. Actor Chris Evans and the cast of the movie attended the event. We also see some special guests such as Jabari Banks, Yvette Nicole Brown, Sherry Cola, Matt Cornett, etc.

Below are some photos of the “Lightyear” cast at the event.
