Buzz Lightyear Gets a New Look in Disneyland and We Have THOUGHTS

Lightyear is officially in theaters, y’all!


Let’s go meet Buzz Lightyear

The film has already scored BIG at the box office, and we even learned that Disney consulted with NASA on the movie (how’s that for realism?)! Disney’s giving away a free Lightyear Collectible Key online, and new Lightyear merchandise has arrived both online and in the parks. Now, though, Buzz is meeting with guests in Disneyland…but there’s something VERY different about him… . 

Okay, so we’ve all seen Buzz in the parks before, right? We’re used to seeing him like this — Andy’s toy in the Toy Story  movies!

But today, as we were waiting to meet Buzz, we noticed something VERY different about him.

Um…Buzz Lightyear is now a FACE character in Disneyland!


Buzz, is that you?

Okay, so maybe we get Disney’s reasoning behind this. Lightyear tells the story of the REAL Buzz Lightyear that inspired the toy that Andy gets in Toy Story. So Disney thought, “Hey, we’ll make him a real person in the parks.”

Needless to say, a lot of Disneyland guests are a little confused, though. We mean, it’s not the first time we saw Buzz get an update, but we’ve personally never seen him as a face character before. Many guests were doing a double take and honestly unless you look closely, you might be confused about who you are meeting!


Okay, it IS Buzz Lightyear…

We are torn on the new meet and greet and aren’t sure if we love it or not. So we would really love you thoughts? Is this the coolest thing ever, or do you prefer classic Buzz? Please let us know!

If you’re wanting to meet the new Buzz, he’s going to be in Tomorrowland in Disneyland at the top of every hour until 4PM.

For all you huge Buzz Lightyear fans, be sure to catch Lightyear in theaters, and don’t forget to enter Disney’s BIG Lightyear giveaway — you could win a chance to design your own shoes with the company that inspired the shoes Buzz wears in the movie! If you want to know more about Lightyear, Chris Evans (who voices the character in the new movie) recently offered up some details for fans of the character.
