The Pixar team leads NEW Disney renaissance!

The Pixar team that came into Disney Animation in 2006 believes their work at changing the culture at the then-struggling studio has paid off over the last few years, according to the Wall Street Journal. Disney and Pixar president Ed Catmull said, “When we came to Disney eight years ago, it was to bring the artistic integrity into the studio, and bring that flair back. So, six films in a row have had great scores on Rotten Tomatoes, but the last three have finally risen above. This is now the new Disney.” John Lasseter, the chief creative officer of both companies added they did it by turning Disney into a filmmaker-driven studio like Pixar. “We are so, so excited to have the renaissance of Disney animation. We were dedicated to bringing the studio back”.
