Rashida Jones

Yesterday, Pixar CCO and Disney’s Head of Animation John Lasseter announced that he would be taking a six-month leave of absence due to allegations of inappropriate behavior towards female employees.

While yesterday’s report came with horrifying details that support these allegations, it’s not clear how many victims there are. However, it did speculate that Toy Story 4 writer Rashida Jones left the project due to one of Lasseter’s unwanted advances. Now, she is coming out to refute those speculations and to clarify why she left and support those who may have been victimized. More on the story below.

John Lasseter

The wave of sexual assault allegations continues to flow in, and people who were once highly respected by their peers are turning out to be creeps and perpetrators. Among those people are Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, and Louis C.K., all of whom have lost a great deal in the weeks since they’ve been outed.

Now, John Lasseter, the CCO of Pixar and head of Disney Animation Studios, is stepping away from his responsibilities and going on a six-month leave of absence in order to address some of the serious “missteps” he has taken throughout his career. More on the story below.

Toy Story 4‘s progress has remained under the wraps for quite some time. The last time we heard anything about the sequel was actually at D23 2015, where it was revealed that Rashida Jones and Will McCormack’s script would be a romantic animated flick that centers on Woody reuniting with his long-lost love Bo Beep. Of course, other Pixar flicks like Coco and The Incredibles 2 took precedence since they are getting released earlier. But at this year’s D23 Expo on Friday, John Lasseter revealed a little bit more about the planned fourth installment. Check it the details below.

A Wrinkle in Time Mannequin Challenge

The mannequin challenge craze has caught the nation by storm. And while I believe that it is a popular trend that will eventually find its way out the door, film PR might as well use it to promote their movies while the trend is still hot.

In this case, everyone involved in the production and publicity for Ava DuVernay‘s A Wrinkle In Time participated in the mannequin challenge to announce the release date for the upcoming film. Check out the video below.

Toy Story Wood and Bo Peep Disney Pixar

It was first thought that 2010’s Toy Story 3 would be the end of Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story film franchise, with the characters to live on through animated shorts. Director John Lasseter had explained that there won’t be a Toy Story 4 unless there was a story that was worth telling. But Lasseter’s wife would help with the inspiration for a fourth feature film, and when the Pixar Brain Trust Member Andrew Stanton worked together on the sequel, Stanton came up with a treatment that convinced him that it was worthy to revisit the world of Toy Story. Months after, it was confirmed that Will McCormack and Rashida Jones would develop the treatment to a full script.

Now we know more about the film, which has been described as a romantic film with a Pixar touch. Lasseter made an appearance on Friday at the Pixar Animation Panel during Disney’s D23 Expo, where he talked more about the next installment.

Toy Story

The Walt Disney Company chairman Bob Iger has officially announced that Pixar is making Toy Story 4, and that original Toy Story director John Lasseter will be returning to helm the fourth installment himself.

Disney has also locked in the June 16, 2017 calendar spot for a release date. The story will see Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the toys beginning a new chapter. The idea for the story was developed by some of the Pixar Brain Trust, including two-time Oscar-winner Lasseter (Toy Story, Tin Toy), two-time Oscar winner Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL-E), Oscar winner Pete Docter (Up), and Toy Story 2 co-director and Oscar-winning Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich.
