  • I chose John because he animated some of my favorite movies like Toy Story or Cars and some of the short clips like Knick Knack or Luxo Jr. He smiles all the time and he as a very different way of animating things to look different

  • John Lasseter was born January 12th, 1957 in Hollywood, La in California. He started thinking about animation when he was in highschool. He read a book called “The Art of Animation” and he thought; People do animation for a living? When he became older he became an American animator and film director, and the chief creative officer of Pixar Animation Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and DisneyToon Studios. He also is the Principal Creative Advisor for Walt Disney Imagineering.

  • He also created some of my favorite characters like Jessi from Toy Story, Mator from Cars, and Tinkerbell from well Tinkerbell.
