Chris Evans said, "The phrase 'a dream come true' gets thrown around a lot, but I've never meant it more in my life." He continued saying, "Anyone who knows me knows that my love for animated films runs deep. I can't believe that I get to be a part of the Pixar family work with these truly brilliant artists who tell stories unlike anyone else. Watching them work is nothing short of magic.

Zurg and Aliens

Fans continue speculating on other characters Buzz from Toy Story knew and interacted with. The biggest question asked is if Zurg will be making an appearance or not. In Toy Story Zurg was the enemy of the astronaut and later on the toy of Buzz Lightyear. Some people speculate he will appear as a villain in Lightyear as well or possibly a teaser at the end of the movie for a possible sequel. Another question is the aliens also seen in Toy Story. People are speculating they will make an appearance but neither of these characters were seen in the Teaser Trailer.
