Word reaches us that numerous Disney Feature Animation people have been journeying up to Emeryville to check out goings on at Pixar... ...word also reaches us that Pixar employees are complaining about not getting work done because of all the looky-loos from D.F.A. who're interrupting that work. So John Lasseter has put a freeze on junkets from Burbank to the Bay Area. At least, that's how the story goes... UPDATE: (April 3, 2006) The issue, it appears, was too many requests coming in for visits to Pixar from Disney Feature. Pixar said (in effect): "Whoaa. Let's talk about this. A few people, fine. The numbers you're talking about, could be excessive."
