Disney celebrates the 25th anniversary of the arrival of the first Disney Pixar movie, Toy Story. For this reason, the company has revealed for the first time the first original Buzz Lightyear sketches, unpublished never seen before.

As you have seen, some of the designs are very close to the final version that we could see in Buzz theaters, although others would undoubtedly have given it a completely different look. As a curiosity if anyone has asked about the marks on the sheets, it is because the sketches were made on a die-cut paper widely used for traditional animation that serves to put one sheet on top of another and make the different drawings to give the feeling of movement are perfectly registered.

Pixar historian Christine Freeman explains: “Buzz is one of our most famous characters and it is fascinating to see the different ways in which Pixar artists imagined him throughout the evolution of his design. Even various names were shuffled, from Tempus of Morph, Lunar Larry to Buzz Lightyear. You can even see the initials LL by Lunar Larry on the belt in one of the sketches. "

Since Woody and Buzz landed in theaters in 1995, as the first fully computer-animated feature film, Pixar films have become a favorite with fans worldwide and have achieved numerous milestones: to date, a total of 23 feature films and 21 short films, 37 Academy Awards, 21 Oscars® or the title of the best-selling Disney Store toy ever for the Action Figure with voice by Buzz Lightyear.
