Disgraced Disney Head John Lasseter Returns With ‘Luck,’ the Year’s Worst Animated Movie

Quick Summary

There’s some serious pedigree here, and as the marketing for Luck informs us, the film comes "from the creative visionary behind Toy Story and Cars.” (One of these things is not like the other, but I digress.)In specific terms, that means that Luck is produced by John Lasseter—the man often credited for being behind some of the most beloved animated films ever when he was the Chief Creative Officer at Disney and Pixar.

Disney, for instance, has continued to build its legacy off of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; Pixar brought us computer-generated animation with Toy Story; and Illumination created a legitimate cultural shift by unleashing little yellow Minions in Despicable Me.

Skydance is keen on making a big impact in the animated world, bringing on the likes of eight-time Oscar winner composer Alan Menken and The Incredibles and Ratatouille director Brad Bird to work on future projects.
