After a six-month sabbatical arising from allegations from sexual misconduct, Disney is considering bringing Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios head John Lasseter back to the company in a role that would give him "less managerial power but full creative influence over the studio’s considerable animated projects," according to a report at Tomb at the Cartoon Monkey.

It's a bit misleading to say that the report is at Tomb of* the Cartoon Monkey (the current blog of former TAG leader and blogger Steve Hulett). The actual report is this article in the Wall Street Journal. Hulett is just quoting a small part of a Yahoo article – which refers to the original WSJ report – in his blog post.

It IS interesting to read Hulett's thoughts, especially in lieu of him actually working at Disney back when Lasseter was there originally. But right now, he's just speculating like everybody else.

Yeah, but I'm worried about a certain SOB of an animation historian (who I wonder about) will continue to brew fuel to the fire about John (pun not intended). Not to mention fans that are now cautioned of him. Also, I hate to hear any stories if someone like Tex Avery had these issues as well (one of the many reasons why I'm glad the Internet didn't exist back then).

It looks like John is going to leave in December: http://www.msn.com/en-us...ear/ar-AAyp8Gq?ocid=iehp

I'm a bit worried that the quality of both studios will decline when he leaves. And I hope that one animation news mogul is happy (see if I buy his Kimball book).
