    Backlash brews over John Lasseter's big new Hollywood job

    A backlash is brewing following news that former Pixar head John Lasseter has been given a new job, heading indie studio Skydance’s animation arm. Lasseter, who directed Toy Story, Toy Story 2 and produced movies like Frozen and Finding Dory, took an extended sabbatical from Pixar last year, following multiple accusations of sexually improper behaviour over his long tenure at the award-winning animation house. Lasseter officially left Disney on 31 December, 2018 after serving briefly in a reduced role as consultant.
