When Pixar’s original “Toy Story” movie was released in 1995, Chris Evans was a 14-year-old, obsessed with Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam, who dreamed of working at Disney and being a film animator. So getting to utter the famous quote “To infinity and beyond!” as an adult was a thrill almost three decades in the making.

The catchphrase now has emotional heft, reflecting the strong bond between astronaut Buzz (voiced  by Evans) and his mentor/commander Alisha (Uzo Aruba).

To infinity and beyond!

In the new movie, the space rangers say it to each other and touch fingers when they’re about to embark on a mission, and it becomes a much larger theme through “Lightyear” as Buzz also shares it with his friend’s Alisha’s daughter Izzy.

“What was really great watching it in this movie is you understand that it’s a pact between friends. It’s a promise. And I think that’s wonderful,” Aduba says.

Adds Evans: “You knew that Pixar was going to have fun with all of those origins, those reasons for why he says the thing he says. That line in particular, (it) was really satisfying to know that it was actually part of this connection he had with this person.”

Chris Evans looking cool!
