Patricia Heaton blasts Pixar for not casting Tim Allen as Lightyear, asks "Why would they completely castrate this iconic, beloved character?"

Patricia Heaton is a not a fan of Pixar’s choice to cast Chris Evans as Buzz Lightyear instead of Tim Allen, who played Buzz in all previous Toy Story movies.

Heaton wrote “Saw the trailer for Buzz Lightyear and all I can say is Disney/Pixar made a HUGE mistake in not casting my pal @ofctimallen Tim Allen in the role that he originated, the role that he owns.

“Tim IS Buzz! Why would they completely castrate this iconic, beloved character?” she asked.

One Twitter user answered “Do people not pay attention? Tim Allen’s Buzz is the toy based off of a person. Chris Evan’s Buzz is the the real person that inspired the toy. The movie is about Buzz Lightyear the Person, not Andy’s toy.”

Another Twitter user replied ‘Disney makes ALL decisions with political implications in mind. Tim Allen is conservative so no longer suitable for hire in a Disney production. Stop with the “this is not the toy” or other spin. You know and I know why Allen didn’t voice Buzz.’
