View Full Version : USATODAY: Pixar whiz reanimates Disney

03 March 2006, 03:20 AM
"John Lasseter is a hugger, not a handshaker. The whimsical whiz behind Pixar, the premier maker of computer-animated family films, greets his guest with outstretched arms and a grin that recalls Toy Story's intrepid space ranger Buzz Lightyear.

Lasseter blames his "formal" attire a muted Hawaiian shirt rather than his preferred loud variety, slacks and shoes in place of jeans and sneakers on the Oscar-nominee luncheon he had to attend in Los Angeles earlier in the day. "
