Thank God for John Lasseter

This in depth story of what was going on with Dwarfs, the Snow White Prequel, is great. But here's the money quote:

The production team pressed forward on Dwarfs for about a month after Disa left. Then they pitched the film’s new storyline to Lasseter. He cancelled the project immediately.
— Josh Armstrong

Immediately. Thank God for John Lasseter
