Tom Hanks finalmente parla dell’esclusione di Tim Allen da Lightyear

Nonostante il suo iconico personaggio del titolo, “Lightyear” non ha raggiunto l’infinito e oltre al botteghino. Secondo Forbes, il film spin-off deve ancora recuperare il suo budget di $ 200 milioni di dollari. Sebbene i film originali di “Toy Story” siano amati dal pubblico, vantando una valutazione del 100% su Rotten Tomatoes, “Lightyear” è una rara bomba per la Disney in mezzo alla concorrenza di franchise come “Jurassic World” e “Minions”, così come il contraccolpo di conservatori per i suoi personaggi LGBTQ. Inoltre, “Lightyear” ha sostituito Tim Allen, il doppiatore originale, con la star di “Knives Out” Chris Evans. Evans ha spiegato (tramite Radio Times) cosa rende il suo Lightyear diverso dalla versione di Allen: Allen interpreta il giocattolo, mentre Evans interpreta l’umano su cui si basa il giocattolo. Prendilo?

Amid the controversies, Allen mostly stayed quiet until he told Extra, “The short answer is I’ve stayed out of this ‘cause it has nothing to do [with my Buzz Lightyear].” Patricia Heaton of “Everybody Loves Raymond” even jumped in, saying “Why would they completely castrate this iconic, beloved character?” Yikes! Now, Allen’s “Toy Story” co-star Tom Hanks is joining the chorus.

There’s been plenty of controversy (via Forbes) around Disney’s new movie, “Lightyear.” And now Tom Hanks has expressed how he feels about recasting Tim Allen. In a new interview with CinemaBlend, the legendary actor who played Woody in the original “Toy Story” series, said “How about that? I wanted to go head-to-head with Tim Allen and then they didn’t let Tim Allen do it. I don’t understand that.”

Hanks is referring to his own film “Elvis,” where he plays the King of Rock and Roll’s manager Tom Parker. While “Elvis” and “Lightyear” don’t necessarily share the same target demographic, they’re currently in theaters at the same time. “Elvis” is ahead of “Lightyear” on Box Office Mojo, at third and sixth place respectively, with the newly-released “Minions: The Rise of Gru” crushing everything in its path.

Even though Hanks expressed confusion at the new “Lightyear” film sans Allen, he still closed out the soundbite in a diplomatic fashion: “Just as long as people come back to the motion picture theater…I want to go back in the theater with a bunch of strangers and leave with something in common.” Amen!
