After working on multiple Toy Story films and shorts, director Angus MacLane began to wonder about the inspiration for the character of Buzz Lightyear . Since Buzz, the toy, is based on Andy’s favorite movie, why not make that movie? Lightyear tells the story of Buzz Lightyear, the space ranger, as he spends years trying to return home after being marooned on an unknown planet. When he finally figures it out, he encounters an army of ruthless robots commanded by Zurg. The challenge for MacLane was to create a film that an existing character would be based on, without telling the same story. DEADLINE: When you’re making this film, how do you take Buzz Lightyear, the character from the film Lightyear , and differentiate him from Buzz Lightyear, the toy? ANGUS MACLANE : Well, Buzz has a different story function in Toy Story than he does in Lightyear , in the sense that as a side character, he’s allowed to be the sidekick. He’s much more the comic relief and … [Read more...] about ‘Lightyear’ Director Angus MacLane On Using An “Echo” Of ‘Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear As Inspiration

TMZ/Getty Composite Kanye West 's 2019 gospel album "Jesus Is King" made Billboard history several times over -- but gospel music legend Marvin Sapp is sympathetic to other artists who, he says, fell victim to Ye's immense celebrity!!! Marvin thinks gospel music is far too welcoming ... something he lamented with VladTV, saying the genre jumps to include artists in its ranks just because they happen to make a song or 2 about God. He also cited Lil Nas X 's country music controversy over his "Old Town Road" hit as an example. Marvin called Kanye's popularity at the pulpit "unfair" ... suggesting Ye doesn't actually live out the lifestyle that reflects gospel music.

Marvin released his fifteenth studio album "Substance" back … [Read more...] about Marvin Sapp Didn’t Like Kanye West’s ‘Jesus Is King’ Dominating Gospel Music
