Does ‘Lightyear’ live up to the ‘Toy Story’ legacy? Featuring a former Disney Parks cast member

A generation of kids grew up on the iconic ‘Toy Story’ character, Buzz Lightyear. Now with the new Disney/Pixar film ‘Lightyear,’ we take a closer look at the more human side of this zealous Space Ranger. Will this movie live up to the legacy of the original films? That’s what Fan Effect Hosts Andy Farnsworth and KellieAnn Halvorsen ask. Together they discuss the new out-of-this-world movie along with Brooke Larson Whipple, a former Disney Parks cast member, current artist, and fellow movie nerd.
