Disgraced Former Pixar Head John Lasseter Is Back Heading Up a New Animation Studio

Skydance Media, the production company behind the Baywatch movie and the two rebooted Star Trek movies that weren’t any good, is starting an animation studio. They have decided that they need a serial sexual harasser to head it, so they got John Lasseter, the former chief creative officer of Pixar. This seems like a bad idea, but studio head David Ellison, the son of tech billionaire Larry Ellison, clearly has some sort of developmental disorder.

Seriously, there is something wrong with that guy.

He looks sort of like if Frankenstein’s monster made its own monster.

He looks like Rocky Dennis cosplaying as a Tom Cruise.

Lasseter was let go from Disney in the wake of the time’s up movement amid reports that he turned the bullpen into Kevin Spacey’s Playboy Mansion, so it’s kind of surprising. But as Variety reported, Ellison sent a memo saying he’s looked at Lasseter’s behavior in the past and he’s convinced that John can make him a lot of money and finally win him his father’s love.

While we would never minimize anyone’s subjective views on behavior, we are confident after many substantive conversations with John, and as the investigation has affirmed, that his mistakes have been recognized. We are certain that John has learned valuable lessons and is ready to prove his capabilities as a leader and a colleague. And he has given his assurance that he will comport himself in a wholly professional manner that is the expectation of every Skydance colleague and partner.

We are very hopeful and excited about what the coming years will bring, as John’s art transcends generations and cultures, while deeply resonating on a fundamental level with what makes us uniquely human.

You can just see the dollar signs in his tiny little deformed eyes. And he’s right, no one on the planet is going to boycott a movie because the production company’s chief creative officer or whatever is a douche.
