Disney Media & Entertainment will release Pixar’s Lightyear for digital purchase Aug. 3, and on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Sept. 13.
Aug. 3 is also the date it becomes available to stream on Disney+.
The CG-animated film is based on the Buzz Lightyear character from the “Toy Story” films, and presents an adventure of the hero upon which the toy is based in the fictional world of “Toy Story.” The story finds Lighyear (voiced by Chris Evans) leading a team of Space Rangers into battle against the evil Zurg.
Extras include an audio commentary with director Angus MacLane, writer Jason Headley and director of photography Jeremy Lasky; a deleted scenes introduction from director Angus MacLane, with six deleted sequences; the featurettes “Building the World of Lighyear,” in which the filmmakers researched the Johnson Space Center, “The Zap Patrol,” about the voice cast, and “Toyetic,” about designing ships, sets and characters that could be easily turned into toys.
