Mission Perpetual is one of my favourite sequences,” Giacchino said in a statement. “It’s early in the movie, and Buzz is attempting to complete a mission and failing. It was a thrilling task for me because the music had to portray so many emotions: Buzz’s anger with himself and the misery of being alone in his pursuit, as well as his unwavering passion and will to succeed. I had to go through a similar’mission’ to get this cue correct, but it was immensely fulfilling after I did.”
