“To be here today, to be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, I just can’t believe it.”

On November 1, 2011, animator, director, and Chief Creative Officer of Pixar and Walt Disney Studios John Lasseter was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work in the field of animation. His star is located in front of the El Capitan Theater, where every Pixar film has been shown since the company’s first full-length animated feature, Toy Story. Lasseter was joined by his family and his colleagues at Pixar, as well as Pixar voice actors Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt, Patton Oswalt, Cheech Marin, Emily Mortimer, Don Rickles, and Pixar favorite John Ratzenberg. Lasseter also gave thanks to the late Steve Jobs, by saying, “[W]ithout Steve, Pixar wouldn’t exist. These films wouldn’t exist. I honor him.”
