John Lasseter@Disney

And I thought to myself, If ever a child anywhere in the world leans over to their daddy during one of my movies and asks, “How many letters are in my name?” I’ll quit.   

John Lasster is still up there as his customers never get a chance to waver during his movies. They are enthralled and happy and so is John Lasseter, in what he likes doing the best, extending the frontiers of computer animation.

Life comes a full circle for John Lasseter at Disney, who once got fired by the same company. After creating several path breaking blockbusters that grossed over US$3 billion, he is back at Disney to a rousing welcome.

John Lassester recounts his fascinating story to Brent Schlender of Fortune.
