Yeah, I'm really curious to know why they didn't delay his announcement until after opening weekend. Someone must have forced their hand. You can bet that this news will do no favors for Coco's numbers.Probably not the best news for Coco's imminent release, either.
There was an article earlier today with accusations. Took just a couple hours for him to announce his leave of absence. - This is incorrect information! The article was being prepped.Of course, but that means that whoever's accusation they beat to the races was timing the accusation for maximum damage to the studio.
Sorry I messed up the timeline the article was being prepped when he decided to take a leave. I'm guessing he was tipped off or contacted for comment - https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/john-lasseters-pattern-alleged-misconduct-detailed-by-disney-pixar-insiders-1059594Wait- there was an article published before his announcement?
