I’ve been a massive fan of their films since the very beginning. My team could barely contain their excitement when they told me that Pixar had a pitch for me. All they said was ‘Buzz Lightyear’. I didn’t know what that meant, since Tim Allen is Buzz Lightyear, and no one could ever touch his performance. I needed to know how this character was different and why this story was worth telling.”
Evans further elaborated the entire thing and discussed two things with absolute confidence.
- He never stopped smiling through the entire pitch
- All of you can rest easily in the light mood.
He shared, “Trust me when I say that they REALLY know what they’re doing over there. This one is going to be special, and it doesn’t step on a single thing. I can’t even put my excitement into words. I smile every time I think about it,” an ecstatic Chris said in his Instagram post.
