Today, Chris Evans is one of the top celebrities in the film industry and is also well known for “Captain America”, but this time, not Captain America because it is Buzz Lightyear’s time, and if you don’t know, then tell that in Pixar’s ‘Lightyear’, the voice of Buzz Lightyear is that of Chris Evans, and everyone loving the voice of Chris Evans as Buzz Lightyear. But did you know Pixar Studios is paying a whopping amount to cast Chris as a voice actor in this film?
Chris Evans Salary For Lightyear
According to media sources, Chris Evans has been paid $10 million for Buzz Lightyear’s character in Pixar’s ‘Lightyear’, and it’s not a shocking amount for Chris Evans because Chris Evans has also charged $20 million for its 2022’s upcoming project ‘The Gray Man’, and $20 million is a double amount to ‘Lightyear’s salary.
The notable thing is that Pixar’s not paid $10 million only for voice but also for participating in the promotion campaigns of the film, and it’s compulsory because voice actors are considered the main pillars of the film. On the other side, ‘Lightyear’ is a big production with a $200 million budget, so $10 million is a normal amount for the main cast, which has millions of fans.
As you all know, Tim Allen has been dubbing Buzz Lightyear since the beginning, and his voice is very much liked, but despite this, casting Chris in this film was a big challenge for the makers. On this, director Angus Malone said the voice of Tim Allen is good, but in ‘Lightyear’, Buzz Lightyear is an action hero, so Chris was the best for this. But in our opinion, the makers have cast Chris Evans keeping an eye on his fan following more than his voice.
The official theatrical release date of Pixar’s ‘Lightyear’ is 17 June 2022 in the USA.
