I wonder if it is possible to find a president or chief of a huge company that has climbed all the way to the top by being kind and humble and without using the elbows. Since Lasseter has been accused of micromanaging and other stuff, and he is far from alone in this, maybe the personal traits that allows someone to reach such positions also includes other personal traits. If it comes with the package, finding someone perfect would be very hard.

Also, if he should be replaced somehow, one has to hope that Disney doesn't try to compensate by swinging the pendulum too far in the opposite direction.

yeah, aggressive ambitious A type personalities often kinda tend to overlap with narcissist type ones.

that story about the Dwarves movie is unbelievable, how can they be so clueless! Im glad it didn't get made!

While I'm pleasantly surprised by this, it doesn't negate all the horrible things he's done.

Quote:
Dixon runs a production company, WalkRunFly, with choreographer Warren Adams. He recalled that Adams had once remonstrated in a meeting with executives when they were casting roles for a cruise ship production of Toy Story. The better black female dancer under consideration was given the role of the monkey toy; the less-good white female dancer was given the lead, said Dixon. Adams told the executives that the black dancer should be the lead and suggested executives call John Lasseter, chief creative officer of Pixar. When Adams returned to the room a few moments later, he discovered Lasseter had given the green light for the black dancer to be given the lead role.

This is why every film from WDAS and Pixar feels the same.

His absence has been felt in every corner of Disney’s animation business, current and former employees say. Though he personally directed only five movies, the last one in 2011, he consulted on every movie at Pixar and Disney Animation, weighing in anywhere from every few weeks to every few months depending on how smoothly production was running, employees said. Approval from Mr. Lasseter was necessary to move past key benchmarks in writing, storyboarding, production and editing.

Well, Brenda Chapman did accuse him of micromanagement, but she wasn't specific from what I remember. Maybe she meant that he insist to put certain elements into the movies (and exclude others), like a red thread (or several threads) that runs through the different animated projects.

Seriously, I feel that both studios should establish their own identities and not try to be copycats of each other.
