Disney and Pixar will be releasing its highly rated film “Lightyear” in South African theatres just in time for families to enjoy this upcoming youth day weekend from TODAY.
The movie is a great watch for both parents and children, as it explores the different facets how we as individuals can view the world. Life is never what we plan for and things don’t always go the way we want it. But this movie is all about not dwelling on the past and wishing that things were different—that seems like a waste of time.
The movie teaches both adults and the youth that in spite of bad things and bad decisions that we need to rather focus on doing what is best with where one is right now and making the most of one’s time.
As individuals we make bad decisions, but if we spend our lives regretting those bad decisions instead of investing in what’s in front of our eyes, is that really living?”
Filmmakers called on actor Chris Evans to voice the accomplished Space Ranger, Buzz. “Lightyear” also features the voices of Uzo Aduba as his commander and best friend, Alisha Hawthorne, and
Peter Sohn as Buzz’s dutiful robot cat, Sox. Keke Palmer, Taika Waititi and Dale Soules lend their voices to the Junior Zap Patrol’s Izzy Hawthorne, Mo Morrison and Darby Steel, respectively, and James Brolin can be heard as the enigmatic Zurg. The voice cast also includes Mary McDonald-Lewis as onboard computer I.V.A.N., Isiah Whitlock Jr. as Commander Burnside, Efren Ramirez as Airman Díaz, and Keira Hairston as Young Izzy.
