Peter Docter, the long tenured veteran & Chief Creative Officer of Pixar has finally provided an answer to the age old question about Toy Story’s infamous space ranger, Buzz Lightyear.
Alongside the successful release of Pixar’s “Soul” on Christmas Day on Disney+, fans can’t help but think about one of the biggest plot holes in the realm of Disney Pixar. In the original Toy Story, Buzz Lightyear denied Woody’s claim that he was, in fact a toy, though he falls “limp like a toy” whenever Andy, his mom, his friends and basically any other humans are in full view of the space ranger. Many fans find it difficult to accept this aspect of the story as reasonable, though a small number of those fans disagree.
According to the statements made by Docter, this aspect of the movie was the subject of conversation back in 1995 when the film was released. Overall, the team at Pixar made the decision to conclude that this aspect of the movie didn’t matter. “We went through a lot of discussion on Toy Story, the first one, about like, ‘If Buzz doesn’t know he’s a toy, why does he go rigid when a kid walks in the room? We had a lot of explanations and talk about that, too. And in the end, nobody cared.”, Docter stated. He added that inside the process of the story’s development it was important to project what details of the movie the audience will resonate with the most “or at least push their interest there.”
