    John Lasseter will be presented with the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement on Sunday September 6th 2009, at 5 pm, during a special ceremony to be held in the Sala Grande of the Palazzo del Cinema at Venice Lido, in the presence of Pixar directors Brad Bird, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrich.

    Commenting on the announcement, Lasseter said: “All of us at Pixar are extremely grateful and honored to be recognized by the Venice International Film Festival in such a special way. This is a great time for Pixar Animation Studios as we celebrate the release of our tenth feature-length film, Up, and the Premieres of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 in Disney Digital 3D™. I am so proud of the directing teams we have at both Pixar and Disney Animation Studios, and their ability to keep pushing the boundaries of the medium while continuing to tell fresh and original stories and create characters that are meaningful to them and memorable to moviegoers all over the world.”

                Toy Story 3D is going to be great! Way to revamp the ones that worked the best! Brilliant part on Disney to take a movie that sold millions of copy's, make an awesome upgrade, and re-sell the same movie to the same people!
                I have to say I'm also insanely excited for Beauty and the Beast 3D. The ballroom scene where Disney first used CGI integrated with drawn animation will be a must see! Can't wait.

Life can be blissful."
