Disney Girl

I'm a Disney Girl. It's a long neglected hobby of mine. One of those things you wish you could spend more time on, but rarely do. Well, I stumbled upon the Pixar Blog, and I've been following it the past few days. (If your at all interested in Pixar, it's amazing--check it out!) And it somewhat renewed my interest. I'm realizing how little I really know about the behind the scenes Dinsey/Pixar wonder. So I thought a good place to start would be John Lasseter. Wow--was I ever right. You basically can't get any higher. According to the amazing Wiki, here is his job description:

"
In April 2006, Disney purchased Pixar and Lasseter was named Chief Creative Officer of both Pixar and Disney animation studios. He was also named Principal Creative Advisor at Walt Disney Imagineering, where he will help design attractions for Disney's theme parks. He will report directly to Disney chief Bob Iger, bypassing Disney's studio and theme parks executives. He also received green-light power on films with Roy E. Disney's consent."

Wow. He can basically do whatever he wants. Talk about the top dog—someone (might have been the pixar blog) even said he was basically the Walt Disney of these times. Crrazy.

And on top of that, he was ultra involved with Bolt. Which, I will have you note, the smart guy who reviews movies in the local paper gave bolt an A- and only gave twilight a B something. Which gets my hopes up—I've been longing for a good Disney movie!

So, even though it might not be “a cool movie” (*sticks tongue out at Peter*) I really want to see it.

Yup. Now on to the 12 hours of HW I have this weekend.
