The pains of remote working, the rise of Skydance, and the muted return of the box office…
John Lasseter-led Skydance Animation will make its big debut in 2022 with the release of two animated features, both directed by women.
The film will be among the first releases from feature animation start-up Skydance Animation.
John Lasseter is running an entire animation studio again.
Peggy Holmes will now direct the first film from John Lasseter’s animation studio.
Say Thompson: “[Lasseter] is presumably being paid millions of dollars to receive [his] second chance. How much money are the employees at Skydance being paid to GIVE him that second chance?”
Skydance Animation’s hiring of John Lasseter “endorses and perpetuates a broken system that allows powerful men to act without consequence.”
