Mercari celebrates the launch of Disney and Pixar’s Lightyear

We've teamed up with Disney and Pixar to celebrate the launch of their new film Lightyear. Get inspired by the origin story of the original Space Ranger, Buzz Lightyear.

Team Mercari

At Mercari, we believe that all things have a mission – and sometimes multiple missions – in their lifetime. The clothes, hobbies, and toys that inspired us in our earlier years can inspire new generations.

And few toys have inspired a generation like Buzz Lightyear. Now, Disney and Pixar’s new sci-fi adventure Lightyear shows us the story of the hero that inspired the toy, and expands on the world of the original Space Ranger. That’s why we’re especially excited to team up with Disney and Pixar to celebrate the film, coming exclusively to theaters June 17!

See our new campaign where we follow the journey of a beloved astronaut helmet – rediscovered in a garage – that takes on a new life and a new mission: helping a young girl become the next Space Ranger.

And if you have a story about how your once-favorite toy inspired a new owner, we’d love to hear it! Share it with us on Twitter.

Lightyear follows the legendary Space Ranger (voice of Chris Evans) on an intergalactic adventure alongside a group of ambitious recruits (voices of Keke Palmer, Dale Soules and Taika Waititi), and his robot companion Sox (voice of Peter Sohn). Also joining the cast are Uzo Aduba, James Brolin, Mary McDonald-Lewis, Efren Ramirez and Isiah Whitlock Jr. Directed by Angus MacLane (co-director Finding Dory) and produced by Galyn Susman (Toy Story That Time Forgot), Lightyear releases June 17, 2022, and is in theaters only.
