Disney Pixar’s summer offer is the toy story spin off Light yearwhich claims to be the movie the Buzz Lightyear toy is based on in the toy story saga.

Pixar fans and Chris Evans head to the theater this weekend for Light year might wonder if the new movie has a post-credits scene. Similarly following the Marvel Cinematic Universe and other Pixar films, Light year has not just one but three post-credits scenes. The first two are more comedic and light-hearted, but the third opens the door to a possible sequel to this Buzz Lightyear solo film. Let’s break down each of them and how they connect to the movie or a possible sequel.
The first of Light yearThe three post-credits scenes come after the most important billing sequence. This is Commander Burnsides, who took over base operations after the death of Alisha Hawthorne, sitting at his desk when one of the planet’s insects flies out the window and gets zapped by the surrounding laser shields. the complex. He laughs to himself when he hears the electric zaps and says approvingly that the laser shields were a good idea. The scene harkens back to his earlier comment about how the science team and the community they’ve built for generations are here to stay with the laser shields protecting them from the planet’s killer bugs.
After the credits end, the audience is treated to another goofy post-credits scene of the droid DERIC still giving Buzz, Mo, Izzy, Darby and Sox instructions on how to locate the mining base where they can get a reel of replacement for their damaged spacecraft. . Earlier in the movie, the droid kept tripping over directions and getting it wrong, having to start over. It’s a fun scene meant to make the audience laugh, much like the Pizza Poppa post-credits scene from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
But Light yearThe shocking post-credits scene comes immediately after the Disney and Pixar title card game. Zurg and his robots float through space after Buzz and his team blow up the Zurg ship, apparently dead and destroyed. Suddenly, Zurg’s mask lights up and his eye lenses flash bright red. The post-credits scene implies that Zurg is still alive and ready to exact revenge on Buzz, who refused to give him the special hyperdrive fuel cell that would allow him to time travel.
With the revelation that Zurg is still alive after the third act battle, a Light year sequel could depict his mission of revenge on Buzz and his crew. The two comic post-credits scenes show that the resort is well established and carrying on with life as usual, so they clearly have a home they think is worth defending against invaders. A sequel could show them and Buzz’s new Space Ranger Corps battling Zurg and sci-fi villains across the galaxy. All post-credits scenes for Light year show that Pixar isn’t ready to drop Buzz, Zurg, or any of the Space Rangers for future films.
You can catch Buzz and the Lightyear crew, playing exclusively in theaters.
