    Lasseter and Grier at Nemo Opening

    I was exiting Space Mountain and saw a pair of faces I recognized. Notice the one in the Nemo shirt!





    John Lasseter and Ed Grier were just about to enter the HISTA theater to be at the What's New briefing.



    Posing for the camera.

    Later I saw John Lasseter after Nemo's opening doing some souvenir shopping for himself and his son.

    I brushed out his son's face to protect the identity of the innocent.









    What impressed me was it looked like he paid for the souvenirs because he signed something from the register. I just liked that he did not demand something free but paid for the things he purchased himself.

    I am sure that he was very proud to be there with his family to enjoy the day.

    Haha, the first two pics of John you had, I was about to cry "FAKE!" But the third shot proved me wrong. Nice job capturing the moment!

    And John is an outstanding guy through and through. I wonder if he saw some of the merch and thought "junk.... this is junk.... junk... hey, son, do you want something?"

    Reyn Spooner has an exclusive line of Disney/Pixar
    Hawaiian Print shirts. Here's link to the men's shirts.
    Sometimes the shirts are exclusive to cast members,
    but whenever a new Disney or Pixar movie is released,
    Reyn usually has a new shirt available to the general
    public. I don't see any nemo shirts now, but on the
    2nd page, there is one still available for the Incredibles.
    I have one they did for Lilo & Stitch

    Uh, yeah, the shirts are a little spendy.

    Haha that's awesome!

    Maybe it was a special shirt made for those that worked on the film? I don't know.

    The only thing I've noticed is that he frequently appears in a suit, but with a colored dress shirt (like the blue one he's wearing in the photos) and no tie. It's between dress and casual (probably a little closer to dress than casual).

    I thought of the same thing myself. A clash of cultures... I do think that the fun shirt that Lasseter is wearing reflects a heart-of-a-child approach to whatever he does.

    Awesome, thanks for the link. Could not find any Pixar/Nemo shirts just now, but then I noticed the Collegiate link at the top of the page, and they had Virginia Tech. My husband was definitely thrilled with that. And once we see how the one fits, may end up getting a Mickey print one to wear when we go to the park.

    I wonder if John was secretly wanting to captain one of the subs!

    Thanks for the pics!
