Disney hosted a special premiere event at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre which saw the stars, filmmakers and special guests coming together to celebrate Pixar Animation Studios’ 26th feature film, “Lightyear”.
A sci-fi action adventure and the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero who inspired the toy, “Lightyear” follows the legendary Space Ranger after he’s marooned on a hostile planet 4.2 million light-years from Earth alongside his commander and their crew.
