Few people have shaped the course of modern animation as much as John Lasseter. The man directed classic films such as Toy Story 1 and 2, and A Bug’s Life, but he’s also the Chief Creative Officer at Pixar and at Walt Disney, in addition to being the Principal Creative Advisor for Walt Disney Imagineering. In short, this man brings out the child in each one of us, and makes that child’s dreams come true. We had the chance to sit down with Lasseter for a quick chat about his inspirations for Toy Story 3, the 3-D trend for animated films, his approach to Pixar villains, and what he has planned for Walt Disney Imagineering.
