Pixar released its first feature-length film, Toy Story, over 25 years ago in 1995. Yet, years later, the franchise is still going strong 

the upcoming spin-off Lightyear set to release in June 2022. With the most recent Lightyear trailer, it appears the film will be one of Pixar's most mature movies to date 

Unlike all the other films in the franchise, Lightyear tells the story of the "real-life" Buzz Lightyear, who the toy is supposedly based on.  

With the '90s release of Toy Story, many kids who grew up with this character are now fully into adulthood, so it feels right that Lightyear should cater to older audiences.  

Although, that's not to say Pixar hasn't always appealed to adults. Many of Pixar's most popular movies tackle mature themes 

The first notable thing from the trailer is the visuals, as Pixar continues to push the boundaries of 3D animation.  

It's clear Pixar has come far since its first release, and the studio continues to be one of the best when it comes to animated movies.  

With how many people grew up with the Toy Story movies, as well as the old Buzz Lightyear cartoon show, it feels fitting that the franchise grows along with its audience.
