Lee Unkrich, the director of ‘Toy Story 3’ and ‘Coco’, and one of the creative masterminds behind Pixar, pull, after 25 years, the door of the animation studio behind. That reported entertainmentmagazine The Hollywood Reporter. “It is almost impossible to imagine that I am not here anymore,” said the American.
According to Unkrich, it was “time for new challenges and adventures”. The director dragged into service by Pixar two Oscars in the wait: for ‘Coco’ (2018) and ‘Toy Story 3’ (2010). He was also co-director of blockbusters like ‘Toy Story 2’, ‘Monsters, Inc’ and ‘Finding Nemo’.
“I am leaving not to make movies for another studio. I look forward to more time to spend with my family and dormant interests are fully chasing after”, it sounds in a statement on Twitter.
The next Pixar film perches on 21 June down in the cinemas: ‘Toy Story 4’, directed by Josh Cooley.
