The release date for Lightyear Disney+ Hotstar has been set for August 3 ...

From August 3, Lightyear, the animated Pixar film starring Chris Evans, Taika Waititi, Keke Palmer, and Uzo Aduba, will be available on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar. It first released on June 17.

Lightyear will be available on Disney+ Hotstar in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam.

Lightyear, according to director Angus MacLane, is fantastic on the big screen, of course, but we are so excited to bring it to Disney+.

We have dedicated years of our lives to this documentary and are so proud of it. We want it to be shared with as many people as possible.

Disney+ gives more people an opportunity to see Lightyear, but also gives us all the resources to see it again and again.

Buzz Lightyear, the hero who influenced the Toy Story action figure character, has been brought back to Earth by his commander and crew.

Evans, a Captain America alum, said he was a kid in a candy store before being invited to be a part of the project.

Toy Story was a wonderful film, and the characters were so varied. Evans shared a behind-the-scenes story.

Buzz Lightyear's origin story is shown in this film. It's the story that made Andy and his friends want to own a Buzz Lightyear toy.

Im a huge Pixar fan. I remember going to a candy store as a kid. Evans describes it as the unlikeliest Pixar film to date.

Lightyear was banned in several Middle East countries, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, due to the inclusion of a same-sex kiss.

Following the outcry over a statement from Pixar employees, the film, about the female character Hawthorne (voiced by Uzo Aduba), was initially withdrawn from the film.

Lightyear is the latest of a growing number of major Disney films, including Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Eternals, that have encountered difficulties in Gulf countries due to performances that include LGBTQ references or issues, which often fall foul of censors for theatrical release due to homosexuality being illegal in the region.

West Side Story was also barred from entering cinemas in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, and Kuwait in January.

Lightyear will be available on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar starting August 3, whenever available.
