Lightyear

Lightyear ★★★

Smart and inventive, "Lightyear" is a rollicking space adventure that's peppered with hilarious gags and knowing nods to iconic movies, while recounting a sparky tale about the importance of teamwork.

Does it ever reach "Toy Story" levels of quality? Not quite, but neither did "Toy Story 4", so it's not like this is the first imperfect chapter of the franchise. In the end, even if Angus McLane's feature debut is blatantly engineered by the studio bean counters, there are a lot of aspects to like here, especially, the delightful cast of characters, with Peter Sohn's Sox and Taika Waititi's Mo Morrison.

Great? Never. Likeable enough? For sure.
