Disney+ launched in the US & Canada on November 12, 2019, and in many other countries in early 2020.
The new streaming service offers thousands of viewing options which includes original content that is exclusive to Disney+. In addition, Disney+ offers some of the best library content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
Despite hours and hours worth of content to enjoy, there’s one show in particular that fans are craving to re-watch, “Buzz Lightyear of Star Command”!
What’s “Buzz Lightyear of Star Command About”?
The TV show was released shortly after “Toy Story 2” and is an origin story for, you guessed it, Buzz Lightyear. The series aired on UPN and ABC from October 2000 to January 2001 as part of Disney’s One Saturday Morning and Disney’s One Too programming blocks.
Buzz is joined by a new crew including Princess Mira Nova, Booster Sinclair Munchapper and XR. The show ran for two seasons with a total of 65 episodes.
It is the first series to be based on a Pixar franchise, followed by “Forky Asks a Question” (debuted on Disney+ in 2019) and “Monsters at Work” (set to debut on Disney+ in 2021)
When Is “Buzz Lightyear of Star Command” Coming To Disney Plus?
As it stands, “Buzz Lightyear of Space Command” is not available on Disney+. As of writing, Disney hasn’t announced if or when the TV show might be added to the service.
We think the chances of the show making an appearance on Disney+ is about 50/50. There is still a lot of excitement around the Toy Story franchise, but Disney has moved on to other shows, such as “Forky Asks a Question”, which has proven to be popular with audiences.
There are even some rumors that Disney isn’t a big fan of this show, and if it didn’t see the light of day again, that would supposedly please some execs. It was also reported that John Lasseter, the creator of “Toy Story”, was one of the biggest voices with disapproval for series.
It’s also possible that Disney just hasn’t had an opportunity yet to rework the show for Disney+. The series is over 20 years old, technology has, of course, changed dramatically during that time and there are certain adjustments needed to be made for Disney+.
Stay tuned to Disney Plus Informer as the moment we know, you’ll know.
