In the wake of Chris Evans Buzz's role in Lightyear, Tom Hanks hoped for Tim Allen to face off ...

Tom Hanks has spoken out against Pixars' decision to cast Chris Evans as Buzz in Lightyear rather than Tim Allen, a fellow actor.

Many Toy Story followers anticipated Allen to reprise his role as Buzz in the 2022 spin-off at the time of the film's announcement.

The latest addition to Disney and Pixar's franchise serves as the origin story for Buzz Lightyear, who has previously been voiced by Allen in other films.

Here's what Woody actor Tom Hanks had to say about Allen's replacement.

Tom Hanks lashes out against Tim Allen's replacement.

Tom Hanks would have preferred to see Tim Allen reprise his role as Buzz in Lightyear.

When asked about his new film Elvis, Hanks said he hoped to face off Allen at the box office.

Is it possible to do that? I wanted to meet Tim Allen head-to-head, but they refused to allow him to, according to Hanks. I do not understand that.

Hanks was asked if Evans would play the voiceover in the new film to which he replied: Yes, yes.

He said: Here's what I want to do: I want to go back in the theater with a group of strangers and leave with something in common. That's what I want to do, and I'm looking forward to seeing a film with [Allen].

Evans has been replaced by Glenn Allen, according to the director.

Angus MacLanerecent, the director of Lightyear, spoke up about his intention to resign in the 2022 spin-off.

MacLane said in an interview with Vanity Fair on June 8th that Tim's version of Buzz is a little funny and is a little dumber, thus he is the comic relief. In this film, Buzz is the action hero. He is serious and ambitious and funny, but not in a goofy way that would undercut the drama.

Chris Evans has the charisma and charisma that our character required to differentiate him and the film from Tim's toy story.

Evans praised Allen's performance and stated that he used it as a guideline for his role elsewhere in the interview.

The Marvel star claimed that he would be a fool not to acknowledge his efforts.

Where can I find a copy of the movie to watch?

Lightyear is now available in cinemas across the globe.

At some point this year, the animated film will be available on Disney Plus, a streaming service that is managed by Pixar Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

If given Disneys pattern to allow films an average 45-day exclusive theatrical window before arriving on Disney Plus, Lightyear's anticipated release date will arrive around late July this year or early August.
