From a badass mass of flames to a shield-wielding superhero, Chris Evans is making our childhoods all scream. In 2022, he is set to do that once again, but this time as Buzz Lightyear of Toy Story fame.

The 39-year-old actor will be lending his voice to star as the iconic space cop in Lightyear, an upcoming animated movie by Disney Pixar. Announced at the recent Disney Investors Day, Lightyear follows the origins of the titular Buzz as he rises up the ranks of Star Command. The movie will premiere in theatres on 17 June 2022.
