Looks like we don't have John Lasseter salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6834 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on November 1, 2011.
2He wore a Scottish kilt to the premiere of Brave (2012).
3In Toy Story (1995), Woody was based on a pull string Casper that John owned when he was a child. Buzz Lightyear was based on a G.I. Joe action figure that John also owned when he was a child.
4He has an extensive collection of vintage toys and model trains. He also has an extensive collection of Hawaiian shirts, most of them have his iconic Pixar characters.
5His first job at the Disney Animation studio was the introduction of Copper in The Fox and the Hound (1981). He even collaborated with Glen Keane on the climactic fight scene.
6Decided to be an animator as a child after spending $.49 to watch The Sword in the Stone (1963) in a theater.
7He loves spy movies, especially the Jason Bourne trilogy. His favorite movie is Dumbo (1941).
8Five days after Toy Story (1995) opened in theaters, he was on a trip with his family and upon getting off a plane, he saw a little boy with a Woody doll, which was enough to convince Lasseter how successful the film was.
9While at Lucasfilm, he worked with Sam Leffler, who was the author/editor of "The Unix System Manager's Manual". At Leffler's request, Lasseter created a cartoon version of "Beastie", the daemon mascot of BSD Unix, to appear on the book cover; Lasseter would reprise the character for two later books. Although Lasseter did not create Beastie, and several other artists have interpreted the character over the years, his rendering has proven to be one of the most popular and endearing versions.

1[on new directions in animated storytelling] You've got to tell them for today's audiences, You can't have a female character sitting around for a guy to come save her. There's not one woman I know - my mom, my wife - who is waiting around for guy to save them. For Tangled (2010), the story had to have a little something extra. This was a challenging story that involves child abduction and a poor girl raised in one room for her whole life. But her decision not to wait for someone to save her was what ended up driving the story. We switched Rapunzel from a damsel to an aspirational character.
2The previous [Disney] regime had decided that their audience didn't want to look at hand-drawn art anymore and that they wanted computer animation. They didn't care about the artists, the history, the art form. They thought the world had grown too cynical for traditional fairy tales, but I was sitting at Pixar thinking, "No! Hollywood's grown too cynical for them! the rest of the world loves them!".
3Everything I do in my life is because of Walt Disney, and how he entertained me as a child and as a young adult growing up.
4[on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)] The animation of the dwarfs themselves is something pretty much impossible to achieve in computer animation. That fluidity, that squash and stretch, that kind of stuff - it just works in hand-drawn animation.
5[on Hayao Miyazaki] Miyazaki is one of the greatest filmmakers of our time and he has been a tremendous inspiration to generations of animators at Pixar, when we have a problem and we can't seem to solve it, we often look at one of his films in our screening room. Toy Story (1995) owes a huge debt of gratitude to the films of Mr. Miyazaki.
6Let me tell you a funny story. I took the family to see this film one weekend - I'll go to see almost any film that's good for the whole family. And so we're sitting there watching this film, which I won't name, and there are long stretches that are just not very entertaining. My little son - he was probably six at the time - was sitting next to me, and right in the middle of this dull section, he turns to me and says, "Dad? How many letters are in my name?" I must have laughed for five minutes. I thought, "Oh, man, this movie has lost this little boy." His mind has been wandering, trying to figure out how many letters there are in his name. So I told my wife, Nancy, what he said, and she started laughing, and then the story went down the row through my whole family, our four other sons, and we're sitting there as a family giggling and laughing. 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.
7Andrew Stanton always said that 2-D animation became the scapegoat for bad storytelling. But you can make just as bad of a movie in 3-D.
8From the beginning, I kept saying it's not the technology that's going to entertain audiences, it's the story. When you go and see a really great live-action film, you don't walk out and say "That new Panavision camera was staggering, it made the film so good." The computer is a tool, and it's in the service of the story.
9We make the kind of movies we want to see, we love to laugh, but I also believe what Walt Disney said "For every laugh there should be a tear." I love movies that make me cry, because they're tapping into a real emotion in me, and I always think afterwards "How did they do that?".
10When I was in high school, I read this book called "The Art of Animation" by Bob Thomas. It's all about the Walt Disney studio and the making of Sleeping Beauty (1959). I read this and it dawned on me - wait a minute, people do animation for a living?
