Tim Allen Praised Chris Evans After Criticizing The Movie

The Golden Globe winner Tim Allen was replaced by the Captain America actor Chris Evans in 2022. The legendary actor had been the voice behind the beloved character Buzz Lightyear. According to Pixar, the spin-off required a new voice for the Space Ranger who has been a part of all the four installments of the Toy Story. The decision to replace Tim Allen was taken by Pixar to differentiate between the two voices for the spin-off.

During an interview with the media outlet, The Daily Mail, The Last Man Standing actor, had expressed his confusion over the Pixar movie. The actor was all praises for his replacement Chris Evans. He said-

“They were two completely different movies. And Chris did a great job doing an ancillary part. It was very confusing to all of us on the Toy Story movie side, which was real? I’m a script guy, so if Buzz is real, then Chris’s version of it was, as an actor doing it, really confusing to me.”

Previously the actor had criticized the movie Lightyear. Tim Allen took a dig at the Pixar movie and even went on to mention-  “there is no Buzz without Woody.”  The Shaggy Dog actor broke his silence during an interview with Extra after being replaced by the Marvel actor. He said-

“I’ve stayed out of this because it has nothing to do… As I said a long time ago, we talked about this many years ago, it came up in one of the sessions. I said, ‘What a fun movie that would be.’ We spoke about it. But the brass that did the first four movies, this is a whole new team that really had nothing to do with the first movies. I thought it was a live-action when they said they were doing a [movie with humans and not the toys].”

Tim Allen even went on to mention that the role wouldn’t have been right appropriate for him after the spin-off because it had no direct connection with his Buzz.
