“Why remove that one element that makes us want to see it #stupidHollywooddecisions.”

For millions of movie fans, Tim will always be associated with Buzz Lightyear, the not-so-smart astronaut he voiced in the 1995 animated Pixar blockbuster.

But Captain America star Chris admitted he was a little intimidated when he took on the voice of Buzz for Lightyear.

When it came to delivering Buzz’s famous catchphrase, “To infinity and beyond,” the Hollywood star said he was simply copying Tim’s version.

According to The Daily Telegraphhe said, ‘I do Tim and I don’t care.

“It makes you so nervous to hear yourself out loud — it almost feels wrong. It’s like trying to say, “Bond, James Bond,” and you say, “No, no, no — that’s for someone else.”‘

Chris’ character in the original photo isn’t quite the dork Tim Allen played.

In Toy Story, Buzz was just a toy who thought he was an astronaut.

Lightyear, Chris explained, is supposed to be the movie the toy is based on.

In the plot of the new film, Buzz is a Space Ranger, stranded on a hostile planet, trying to find his way home. The character is a bit smarter than the toy Buzz.

†[Tim Allen] Buzz Lightyear is to me too – I grew up with these movies,” he said.

“So you definitely want to use it as a template… And it did it so well that I’d be crazy not to process some of the choices. But at the same time you have to make a kind of fresh track in the snow.’

Evans also recently re-explained the film’s plot, nearly two years after a tweet he initially posted was ridiculed by fans.

At the time, he wrote, “And just to be clear, this isn’t Buzz Lightyear’s toy. This is the origin story of the human Buzz Lightyear on which the toy is based.”
