Chris Evans happy to be part of new Disney animated movie

American actor Chris Evans, who rose to eminence over his portrayal of superhero Captain America, said his dream came true as he is a part of the Pixar family for giving his voice to a familiar hero Buzz Lightyear.

Disney Studios has released the trailer of animated movie Lightyear on Wednesday.

The 40-year-old actor is part of the project to lend his voice to the main character in the animated superhero movie. Buzz Lightyear is an astronaut - an inspiration from the favourite Toy Story figure Buzz Lightyear.

"Animated movie [sic] were an enormous part of my childhood. They were my escape. My adventures. My dreams," Chris Evans expressed his excitement while taking to a microblogging website.

"They were my first window into the magic of storytelling and performing. To @pixar and @AngusMacLane: 'Thank you' doesn't even come close #Lightyear."

Chris Evans also attached a screenshot of his statement about the movie to his tweet. "The phrase 'a dream come true' gets thrown around a lot, but I've never meant it more in my life," it stated.

"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 and work with these truly brilliant artists who tell stories unlike anyone else. Watching them work is nothing short of magic. I pinch myself every day."

"Lightyear" will be released to theatres in 2022 summer. The animated film unfolds the life of Buzz Lightyear, a Space Ranger. The Disney-released trailer shows Buzz Lightyear, dressed in his iconic suit, getting ready for a space mission at a training facility.
