George Lucas to Honor John Lasseter

This is long overdue, but better late than never! John Lasseter and fellow Disney/Pixar directors (which are Brad Bird, Lee Unkrich, Pete Docter and Andrew Stanton) will be honored with the Golden Lion for lifetime achievement. Better yet, George Lucas will present the award at the Venice Film Festival! The award will be presented along with the premiere of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 in 3D and a ten-minute preview of The Princess and the Frog and a preview of Toy Story 3. The festival starts September 2nd and ends on the 12th.

This is great! The Pixar crew is inspirational to so many people, me included. Lucas presenting the award must be because he's venturing into the three-dimensional universe. You rock, Pixar directors!
