There is a great interview with Ed Catmull at this site - download the podcast.
Remember, while John may be head creative, Ed is another integral piece to getting Disney, in particular Walt Disney Animation Studios back on track. He is nearly every bit as important as John. Very interesting stuff he talks about...Ed in charge of the business with John in charge of the creative aspects really shows a bright future for all of Disney animation. Listen to how he speaks about the business, the craft, and the craftsmen...he gets it.
