More On: Disney
Tim Allen criticized Disney's box office bomb Buzz Lightyear after Chris Evans took his place. Allen said, 'It has nothing to do with Buzz.' The Disney-Pixar movie didn't do well when it came out.
Allen, who voiced Buzz in the first four Toy Story movies, told Extra, "I haven't done anything about this." "We talked about this a long time ago, but this is not the brass that worked on the first four movies. It's a whole new team that had nothing to do with the first movies."
Allen then said, "There's really no 'Toy Story' Buzz without Woody," referring to the fact that there is no Woody character in the 2022 Lightyear movie.
The star of Last Man Standing said, "I'm a plot guy, so I'm not sure what the idea is. It seems like a big adventure story, but it's not a big adventure story." "It's a great story, but it seems to have nothing to do with the toy. It has nothing to do with Buzz."
Some people didn't like how the movie was cast, like actress Patricia Heaton, who criticized Disney-Pixar for replacing Allen with Evans and asked, "Why would they completely neuter" the Buzz Lightyear character?
Some Toy Story fans wondered if Allen was replaced by Evans because he was more conservative than Allen.
"You really need to watch out around here. Allen said in 2017 that being a conservative in Hollywood means you get beat up if you don't believe what everyone else does.
Lightyear, on the other hand, did not do well at the box office during its first weekend in theaters. In fact, it took a record drop at the box office.
Middle Eastern countries like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) also banned the movie because of a scene in which two female characters kiss.
After a bad start with $51 million in its first weekend, the Disney movie only made $17.7 million in its second weekend, which is a drop of 65 percent.
Evans told those who were offended by the gay kiss, "Those people are idiots." He also said, "There will always be people who are afraid, don't know what's going on, and want to hold on to what was. But those people die off like dinosaurs."
