Disney Exec John Lasseter Goes To Infinity And Beyond (Q&A)

Forbes -- John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer of Pixar and The Walt Disney Animation Studios, has been working closely with Disney Interactive and developer Avalanche Studios to ensure that this new line of toys and games will make its own mark this June. Disney Infinity will offer two ways to play – much like the Toy Story 3 game that Avalanche also created. There’s the story-driven “Play Set” featuring characters from movies like Pirates of the Caribbean, TRON, The Incredibles, Monsters University and Cars, and the “Toy Box” mode, which lets players mix and match characters across platforms.

Lasseter, who enjoys watching his kids play the latest video games, talks about his own video game background and what types of new opportunities Disney Infinity opens up for catalog and upcoming Disney franchises in this exclusive interview.

Funny to see a Hollywood big wig be kicked out of the room by his kids playing games.
