Another successful mission. And we can’t wait to talk more about it. Everyone’s favorite computer-animated movie ‘Lightyear’ has hit the screens, and audiences can’t get enough of it.
You might be wondering if there will be a sequel after watching the movie. And, after all, who doesn’t want to see Buzz Lightyear in action? We’ve come to explore the status of a sequel’s renewal and the possibilities.
Buzz Lightyear, a legendary space ranger, embarks on an intergalactic journey with aspirational recruits Izzy, Mo, Darby, and his robot partner, Sox.
The film has received generally positive reviews from audiences, which is a promising sign. The audience laughed a lot, and the emotional scenes never felt like an outsider.
Lightyear is a love letter to all things Buzz, as well as an exhilarating treat for those who grew up loving him in Toy Story. Now let’s talk about a sequel.
Is A Lightyear Sequel Already Confirmed?
Let’s be clear about something. The movie was just released, and the sequel has yet to be confirmed by the creators and Pixar. But don’t give up because this is just the beginning.
A sequel is not yet confirmed because it will be determined by the success of the initial movie. And once the box office hit and other aspects of Lightyear are analyzed, we may hear something soon.
Lightyear was amusing, action-packed, and had an amazing storyline. There was a lot of character development, and the narrative was not rushed. And the audience’s reaction to the movie will be considered in the happening of a sequel. But we simply have to wait a little longer.
We Might Get A Sequel To Lightyear
Everyone believes that there will be a sequel to Lightyear. But, once again, these are just wild guesses.
According to reports, the movie is expected to gross between $70 and $85 million in its first week due to the enthusiasm of the audience. And if that happens, and it becomes more mainstream, there is a good chance of a sequel.
Angus MacLane, the film’s director, mentioned something about the movie.
“What I liked about Star Wars is it always allowed for the expansion of what the world could be. I think that open-mindedness is often what’s most exciting, it’s when you start closing those doors and connecting those things that it becomes less compelling.”
The director further explained, “So our focus right now is honestly finishing this movie, but it’s meant to be this like island of a narrative that is very much we don’t start when Buzz is born. It was very much this thing that you’d imagined stuff before and afterward, I think connecting it is risky, but you know, who knows?”
The movie grossed $5.2 million from Thursday night previews. It appears that we will now have to wait and see how the movie performs. And it is entirely dependent on the audience.
But we do hope there will be a sequel. In the meantime, you’re welcome to share your reviews on Lightyear in the comment section below.
