Buzz Lightyear is a very traditional hero character who thinks that things are best done when you do everything yourself. In his role as a space hero, he is used to taking action and protecting others at any cost.

As the story progresses, Buzz learns that everyone makes mistakes sometimes and the biggest demands on yourself don’t necessarily come from others. The teaching of science adventure is related to the cooperation of different friendships, receiving help, and flexibility. The end result can be good, even if everything doesn’t go exactly according to the original plan.

The film contains a lot of action as well as threatening and emotional scenes. The finiteness of life is also discussed. The heroes fight against aliens and quite scary robots with laser guns and explosives. Of course, there is humor that lightens the atmosphere and likable characters, but the use of age flexibility should be considered for the very youngest audiences who are not used to action films.

The film is inspired by the character Buzz Lightyear from the Toy Story films, but understanding the story does not require knowledge of Toy Story. (Source:
