Disney-Pixar on Wednesday released the first trailer for the computer-animated science fiction action film “Lightyear,” an origin story of the Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear. The trailer aired on ABC's "Good Morning America."

"Lightyear" is about Buzz Lightyear’s human-life space adventures and missions. The trailer shows him heroically lifting off into space to explore alien planets.

"Lightyear" is scheduled to be released on June 17. The film is directed by Angus MacLane. Actor Chris Evans is the voice of Buzz Lightyear.

Tim Allen did the voice-over for Buzz Lightyear in the past four Toy Story movies.

MacLane told "Good Morning America" that the movie will be serious and funny but not goofy.

"At first glance, you might think, 'This is a 'Toy Story' film.' Well, not so fast," he said.

"See, back when we created the very first 'Toy Story,' we designed Buzz Lightyear with the idea that he was a toy based on some really cool character from an epic, blockbuster film. Well, all these years later we decided it’s time to make that film.

"And so, this is a film where we find out about Buzz Lightyear and the origins of the Space Rangers and all of the fun things about that, but it's meant to be this movie, in the best sense of the word. It's a film that celebrates that feeling you would get watching the sci-fi movies of the late '70s and early '80s."
