John Lasseter Talks "Cars"; Confirms New 2-D at Disney
An article in the New York Times covers the pressure on Pixar Animation Studios on the upcoming film Cars (registration required), noting that it is poised to extend Pixar’s critical and box-office winning streak past that of Walt Disney himself. Several comments by film director and Disney Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter delve into the creative inspirations and technical challenges that Cars presented.
Elsewhere, animation historian Jerry Beck links to a Lasseter profile article where he states, “We’ll still definitely be doing some hand-drawn animated films at Disney, without question.”
Cars opens in the United States on June 9.
