After Chris Evans depicted Buzz Lightyear, Tim Allen clarifies the confusion ...

Tim Allen was the voice of Buzz Lightyear to an entire generation of families. The iconic Toy Story character wouldnt be the same without Allen's trademark heroic voice. A recent spin-off stars Chris Evans in the role, which caused a lot of confusion among fans.

In the latest film, Lightyear tells the story of the man who created the toy. Tim Allen plays the real life Buzz Lightyear.

Tim Allen spoke about the tense situation with Extra recently. He believes Lightyear has nothing to do with Toy Story. He doesnt believe Evans' character has anything to do with his.

Its a wonderful story, it just doesn't appear to have any connection to the toy, it has no connection to Buzz. There's simply no connection, I wish there was a better connection.

Many fans of the original were surprised to learn that Buzz Lightyear would be given a new voice. The notion of a character being a toy based on another character might have been too far for most moviegoers. Tim Allen himself does not understand why more effort was made to connect the two.

In the end, Lightyear will most likely be remembered for making such a dramatic shift from the source material. Tim Allen would have loved to tell the same story differently. Instead, fans got Chris Evans, which rekindled a lot of people's childhood prejudices.
