By now – pretty much everyone has seen Coco, Pixar’s latest family classic that makes even hardened cynics shed a tear or two. So much of the success of the film depends on how authentic it feels to Mexican tradition. The music – from the score to the songs – capture a culture ill represented by Hollywood cinema as of yet. For composer Michael Giacchino (The Incredibles, Rogue One) and songwriter Germaine Franco (Kung Fu Panda 3), it was critical that the music of Coco never felt like your typical Disney or studio approved sounds, that the music had a unique feel …

Screenwriters Rashida Jones And Will McCormack No Longer Involved In Toy Story 4 Amid John Lasseter Scandal

It seems Toy Story 4 is in need of new screenwriters.

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Rashida Jones walked out on the animated sequel after John Lasseter, the renown head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation, made an “unwanted advance.” This news comes just as Lasseter takes a six-month leave of absence because of unspecified “missteps.”

Disney’s official statement on the matter failed to mention specifics, but the allegations against John Lasseter are beginning to mount. At the time of writing, Jones has not responded to her alleged incident with the Pixar co-founder, though it should be noted that she’s still listed as Toy Story 4‘s screenwriter. Her writing partner, Will McCormack, also left the project early on in a show of solidarity.

As the director of both Toy Story and its beloved sequel, these accusations are shocking and deeply troubling, and subsequent reports have alleged

Toy Story 4 Writers Left Over Pixar Head's Alleged Misconduct
John Lasseter, head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation, is the latest Hollywood power player to be embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal, with a new report claiming his behavior affected the highly-anticipated sequel Toy Story 4.

‘Coco’ Will Beat ‘Justice League’ Over Thanksgiving, but That’s Not Great Box-Office News

‘Coco’ Will Beat ‘Justice League’ Over Thanksgiving, but That’s Not Great Box-Office News
Good news: Pre-opening estimates suggest Pixar’s “Coco,” opening Wednesday, will best “Justice League” for the five-day Thanksgiving weekend.

Bad News: “Coco” will likely gross around $60 million-$65 million, which would rank as one of least-impressive Thanksgiving box office returns in years. To be a blockbuster, “Coco” would need a very strong multiple and an international performance better than most Pixar films.

At $65 million for five days, it would be the lowest (in adjusted numbers) top grosser for the holiday weekend since the barely remembered “Four Christmases” in 2008. It also would fall short of the top 25 for the date; top animated titles on that list include Disney’s non-Pixar “Frozen,” (over $100 million), “Moana” ($83 million), and the original “Toy Story” and “A Bug’s Life,” both of which opened to over $80 million.
