Following on from October's first look at the movie, Disney and Pixar have shared a fun new trailer for this summer's Lightyear.

They've also announced who else will be joining Chris Evans as Buzz Lightyear, with Keke Palmer, Dale Soules and Taika Waititi voicing 'a group of ambitious recruits', Peter Sohn as Buzz’ robot companion Sox, plus Uzo Aduba, James Brolin, Mary McDonald-Lewis, Efren Ramirez and Isiah Whitlock Jr.

"The cast for Lightyear is truly a dream team,” says director Angus MacLane. “Each of the performers immediately inhabited their character, which gave us the opportunity to play a bit during recording sessions. This resulted in a level of specificity that elevated the material and brought additional depth to the characters’ relationships. It has been a privilege to work with such a talented and generous cast."

Angus adds of the movie as a whole: “Buzz’s world was always something I was excited about. In Toy Story, there seemed to be this incredible backstory to him being a Space Ranger that’s only touched upon, and I always wanted to explore that world further. So my Lightyear pitch was, 'What was the movie that Andy saw that made him want a Buzz Lightyear toy?’ I wanted to see that movie. And now I’m lucky enough to get to make it.”

Watch the new trailer below:

Lightyear will hit cinemas on June 17, 2022.
