Lasseter Q&A at ComingSoon.net

ComingSoon.net brings us a fresh Q&A with Pixar creative chief and Cars 2 director John Lasseter.

Over five questions, Lasseter discusses the film's conspiracy angle, his inspirations for the story, and general technique as a filmmaker.

"I'm very collaborative. I don't pretend to know everything that is needed to make a movie," he says.

Lasseter also talks about Cars Land, the new attraction under construction at the Disney California Adventure Park.

Anonymous, while she's going to be credited as such, from what I understand she's no longer working at the studio in any capacity. She's still being paid since she's still under their payroll but not involved anymore. Unless you know something I don't.

She's not working on Brave anymore. Even though she's getting credit, she was essentially kicked off.
