Tom Hanks has asked why Tim Allen wasn’t asked to voice Buzz light year.
When the film was announced, many assumed Allen would voice the character. However, it was revealed that Chris Evans would do so.
Evans defended his casting, clarifying that the film was not based on the toy, but rather the real astronaut that inspired the toy in the Pixar universe. Meanwhile, director Angus MacLane called the decision “premeditated”.
