Rashida Jones Says She Didn't Exit Toy Story 4 Because Of John Lasseter — But Over 'Philosophical Differences' With Pixar!

no title

Rashida Jones did exit Toy Story 4 early on in the project's development, but it wasn't because she was creeped out by Pixar co-founder John Lasseter.

The Angie Tribeca star and her writing partner Will McCormack issued a joint statement on the nature of their departure from the animated film following Lasseter's announcement that he will be stepping down from his position as head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation.

After the animator's memo to staff went public, multiple allegations surfaced detailing years of Lasseter making his employees uncomfortable with unwanted hugs and inappropriate touching.

One source even claimed that Jones and McCormack left Toy Story 4 early on after Lasseter made an "unwanted advance" toward her.

The writing duo clarified the rumors on Tuesday, admitting it wasn't Lasseter that made them exit the project, but Pixar's general treatment of female and minority employees.

In a joint statement to The New York Times, they wrote:

John Lasseter's Alleged Misconduct Exposed! Did Rashida Jones Exit Toy Story 4 Over An 'Unwanted Advance' From The Pixar Co-Founder?

no title

Sounds like Disney has been using all its Fantasia brooms to sweep years of in-house drama under the rug.

On Tuesday, John Lasseter stepped down from his position as head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation after acknowledging "missteps" in which he made his employees "feel disrespected or uncomfortable" over the years.

After the executive shared the memo to his staff, tongues began to wag about the type of environment Lasseter ran at the imaginative company — which, according to sources, included lots of inappropriate touching. Though it wasn't just company employees Lasseter apparently made feel uncomfortable.

According to a Hollywood Reporter source, Rashida Jones — who is credited as a writer on Toy Story 4 with her then-partner Will McCormack — exited the project early on after Lasseter made an unwanted advance toward her.

Disney declined to comment on the alleged incident, however a studio source told THR that Jones's departure was over "creative differences."

Unlike Jones, unfortunately, Pixar employees couldn't walk away from the co-founder's alleged behavior. One longtime company employee said Lasseter was just as well known for hugging employees as he was for "grabbing, kissing, making comments about physical attributes."

Multiple sources say some women at Pixar routinely turned their heads quickly when encountering him to avoid his kisses. Others even used a move dubbed "the Lasseter" to

No! Not John Lasseter!

The director of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 is stepping down from his position as head of Disney Animation after what he calls "missteps."

Apparently Disney has handled all of this in-house as we hadn't even heard anything about it before he released a memo, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter.

While Don Rickles had been cracking people up for decades, there's a whole generation who will only know the late comedy legend from one role: Mr. Potato Head.

In all three of the Toy Story films, the standup brought his trademark lovable crank style to the child's toy, whose previous personality was entirely determined by how much you angled the detachable eyebrows.

Pixar's Favorite Secret Message Was Finally Found In The Good Dinosaur — Check Out All The Best Easter Eggs In Disney & Pixar Films!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisney

no title

With stunning animation, imaginative stories, and poignant messages that will make you cry like a toddler — there's always a reason to watch a Pixar movie.

But if you need a reason to watch more than once, its the running inside jokes, or easter eggs, that the animation studio hides in its films for fans to find!

Usually, it's a clue to an upcoming film or a favorite character cameo in the background — but Pixar ALWAYS loves to hide "A-113" in its films!

A-113 was the classroom number used by studio head John Lasseter when he was a graphic animation student at the California Institute of the Arts.

This number is hidden in EVERY Pixar movie — and after several weeks a reddit user was FINALLY able to find it when watching the studio's latest film The Good Dinosaur!

This is definitely not the only hidden gem in Pixar or Disney films though…

We can't wait!

Disney and Pixar make quite a team; we LOVE almost everything they do!

That's why we were so excited to hear that they were making a sequel to one of our favorites — Finding Nemo!

The film — which is titled Finding Dory — already had some plot details revealed, including where the flick will take place.

In fact, earlier this year, Pixar Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter said the film will answer the question, "Where is Dory's family?" Lasseter went on to say:

"That has been just bugging us since we made (Finding Nemo) and we thought this could be a great place to move forward."

We still don't know a ton of specifics — though we do know that Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres will be back along with the news that Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy will be voicing Dory's parents.

Despite the not knowing a whole lot about the flick though, the studio just released the first poster for the the oceanic animated flick and it's PERFECT!

Ch-ch-check out the pic (below) and let us know what you think!
