What is important to take into consideration about this movie was revealed by Evans in his tweet written almost a year ago: “And just to be clear, this isn’t Buzz Lightyear the toy. This is the origin story of the human Buzz Lightyear that the toy is based on.” The real person who inspired Buzz Lightyear was American astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who, together with astronaut Neil Armstrong, were the first ones to land on the moon in 1969.
