Tim Allen Gets The Last Laugh As ‘Lightyear’ Flops Without Him

Tim Allen has to feel kind of good to see that “Lightyear” flopped with Chris Evans who replaced him.

Last week, we reported on the backlash over Disney replacing Tim Allen, who originated the role of Buzz Lightyear, with Chris Evans in the new movie Lightyear. Now, Allen is getting the last laugh, as Lightyear has flopped at the box office after it came out on Friday.

But first, check out a trailer for Lightyear below.

Though experts had expected Lightyear to make $70 to $85 million domestically, it only made a measly $51 million across the U.S. and Canada, according to NBC News. In contrast, Toy Story 4 made $120.9 million in its opening weekend when it came out in June of 2019.

Variety reported that Lightyear wasn’t even able to beat Jurassic World: Dominion, which was the top movie of the weekend, making $58.6 million in North America. The production value of Lightyear was $200 million before marketing, so it has quite a ways to go before it even breaks even.
