Disney announced yesterday you’ll be able to stream Pixar’s ‘Lightyear’ movie on its Disney+ streaming service starting on August 3, 2022.

A new ad spot was released celebrating the upcoming streaming launch of ‘Lightyear’ on Disney+, which you can see below:

“’Lightyear’ looks amazing on the big screen, of course, but we are so excited to bring it to Disney+,” said director Angus MacLane, in an issued statement. “We devoted years of our lives to this film and we are so proud of it. We want to share it with as many people as possible. Disney+ not only gives more fans an opportunity to see ‘Lightyear,’ it gives us all the means to see it again and again.”

The synopsis of Lightyear is as follows:

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. As Buzz tries to find a way back home through space and time, he’s joined by a group of ambitious recruits and his charming robot companion cat, Sox. Complicating matters and threatening the mission is the arrival of Zurg, an imposing presence with an army of ruthless robots and a mysterious agenda.

‘Lightyear’ features Chris Evans as Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear (where’s Tim Allen!), Uzo Aduba as his commander and best friend Alisha Hawthorne and Peter Sohn as Sox.

Keke Palmer, Taika Waititi and Dale Soules lend their voices to the Junior Zap Patrol’s Izzy Hawthorne, Mo Morrison and Darby Steel, respectively, and James Brolin is the enigmatic Zurg. Mary McDonald-Lewis is the voice of onboard computer I.V.A.N., Isiah Whitlock Jr. as Commander Burnside, Efren Ramirez as Airman Díaz, Keira Hairston as Young Izzy and Tim Peake as Tim/Mission Control (in U.K. release).

‘Lightyear’ is directed by Angus MacLane (co-director “Finding Dory”), produced by Galyn Susman (“Toy Story That Time Forgot”) and features a score by award-winning composer Michael Giacchino (“The Batman,” “Up”). You can still catch ‘Lightyear’ in theatres but the streaming release on Disney+ in Canada and beyond is August 3, 2022.
