Lightyear - FREE Family Fun Activities

Disney / Pixar's Lightyear gives us the origin story of everyone's favorite Space Ranger, Buzz Lightyear.  In this intergalactic animated film, we leave the world of Andy's bedroom and meet new heroes. . .and a robot pet cat, Sox, who might just be my new favorite Disney sidekick!  Both of my boys loved seeing the film, with 7 year old Caleb calling it "the greatest film of all time."  I don't know if I'd go that far, but I really enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at how Buzz became the heroic Space Ranger we all know and love.

Can't get enough Lightyear?  Want to add some family fun to your movie night?  Check out these FREE downloadable activities from my friends at Disney / Pixar.

A sci-fi action adventure and the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero who inspired the toy, “Lightyear” follows the legendary Space Ranger after he’s marooned on a hostile planet 4.2 million light-years from Earth alongside his commander and their crew. As Buzz tries to find a way back home through space and time, he’s joined by a group of ambitious recruits and his charming robot companion cat, Sox. Complicating matters and threatening the mission is the arrival of Zurg, an imposing presence with an army of ruthless robots and a mysterious agenda.
