Simon Pegg stars as Bob the black cat in the Apple TV+ upcoming film, Luck. Legendary John Lasseter is the Producer of Luck, and I was wondering what it was like to work with someone who’s had such an amazing career. You might know Lasseter from Pixar films like, Cars, Coco, UP, and The Incredibles. Find out how Simon answers in this exclusive interview.
Simon Pegg Interview on Working with John Lasseter
“It was really the pedigree of one of the branches of Pixar being involved. I think that’s reflected in the visuals. The great thing about the Pixar films, is that they were always much more than a story. There was a lot of depth to them, there was a lot of meaning. There wasn’t just visuals, there was a human story involved in it. Genuine life lessons about friendship and love, and more things that were the signature of Pixar. I think that’s comparable to what Skydance Animation has, which is a good thing.”
