Personal Quote:

I think, in Japan, animation isn't relegated to being a genre unto itself. It's just a medium by which you can tell any number of stories, be it horror or action or adventure or drama or whatever, and we're trying to do that as well. Every film that you go see from Pixar, we're hoping is a little bit of a surprise. See more »

Trivia:

As of 2015, all three of his films have focused on the main protagonist protecting a child character in one way or another. (Sully protecting Boo in Monsters, Inc. (2001), Carl protecting Russell in Up (2009), and Joy & the other emotions working to guide Riley in Inside Out (2015). See more »
