Chris Evans has been busy promoting the highly-anticipated Toy Story spin-off prequel Lightyear, where he will voice the beloved Buzz Lightyear.

And on Saturday, the 40-year-old struck a pose with the 1995 version of the Space Ranger superhero while spending time at Disney’s California Adventure.

Along with Buzz, Evans mingled with the likes of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and a myriad of Pixar characters near California Adventure’s fun-filled Pixar Pier.

Evans stood in a tight white t-shirt and a pair of gray jeans. A blue cap was pulled low over his eyes and a gold chain hung down toward his impressive pectoral muscles. 

He stood in tall brown Timberland boots and his facial hair was groomed.

Mickey and Minnie ditched their traditional garb to dress up as cowboy Woody and superhero Buzz as a nod to Lightyear’s impending release.

Costumed individuals as Woody and Buzz were also in attendance to welcome Evans to the Pixar family as were Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl from The Incredibles, and Joy and Sadness from Inside Out. 

The Avengers star’s appearance at California Adventure came just a couple days after he admitted his first attempts at Buzz Lightyear’s voice were heavily influenced by Tim Allen who voiced the character in all four of the Toy Story movies. 

The Knives Out star said he was doing a ‘shameless’ impression of the Home Improvement star playing the character when he first started.

‘The first time you have to do that iconic line, “To Infinity and Beyond…,” you kind of just do a shameless Tim Allen impression. It’s intimidating,’ he said in an interview with Variety at the film’s premiere. 

He went on to say that the film’s director Angus MacLane really helped him find the voice for this iteration of the character. 

‘Everyone at Pixar was so collaborative, and you kind of let them guide you,’ he explained. ‘Eventually you feel comfortable enough to make your own tracks in the snow and find your own interpretation, while still using Tim Allen as the blueprint.’
