I’m Now Less Interested in the Lightyear Movie

The first teaser trailer for Lightyear really struck a chord with me thanks to its sweet rendition of David Bowie’s “Starman”. We didn’t know too much about the story, and I am totally open to a movie about Buzz Lightyear the fictional character. That’s fine by mean and not too hard to understand.

But now we’ve got a new story trailer, and I’m liking the movie less and less with each subsequent trailer. There’s no “Starman” at all in this one.

I guess I don’t know what I’m expecting from this movie, but a typical adventure where our hero teams up with a squad of rando losers in order to save the day wasn’t one of them. That seems less a story about something and more just story filler. Also, and perhaps I’ll take flak about this from the millions of people who read this blog, but I already hat that robotic cat.

I’ve really taken a hard stance in recent years against animated animal sidekicks. Movies don’t need that crutch!

Anyway, Lightyear comes to theaters on June 17.

  1. I don’t like it simply because they recast Tim Allen.
