Is The Lake on Netflix?
It’s finally time to get Buzz Lightyear’s origin story. While it’s out in theaters right now, will Lightyear head to Netflix when it comes to streaming?
Throughout four movies and various specials in the world of Toy Story, we know that Buzz Lightyear had some sort of backstory. He was the only toy who didn’t know that he was a toy, which made things hilariously difficult in the very first movie.
Now it’s time to find out what that backstory is. Buzz has his own origin movie. While it’s not Tim Allen doing the voice, we still have a fun movie that takes children to infinity and beyond.
The movie is currently out in theaters. It’s the first Pixar movie to head exclusively to theaters since the start of the pandemic. Everything else went to streaming. Eventually, it is going to streaming, but where will that be?
Is Lightyear coming to Netflix?
There is some bad news for those who want to watch the movie on Netflix. Lightyear is not going to get a Netflix release. At least, that’s no the case right away—and I can’t see why Netflix would end up getting it.
Pixar is owned by Disney. Disney has its own streaming platform. We’ve already seen Pixar movies head to Disney+, so it’s not surprising to hear that this latest movie within the Toy Story franchise is heading to Disney+ in the future.
How long will we need to wait for the streaming release? That’s not easy to call just yet. After all, previous Pixar releases skipped the theater and headed straight to streaming. Other Disney releases have come to Disney+ somewhere between 47 and 89 days after the theatrical release. Without consistency with other shows, it’s impossible to make a call on this one.
