Pixar in the Vanity Fair 100

Vanity Fair 100: The New Establishment lists the world’s most influencial people in business, government and entertainment and Pixar has a big presence this year.

Steve Jobs is among the individuals listed, the co-founder of Apple and former CEO of Pixar is at number 4. Vanity Fair recognizes:
"[Jobs can be proud of] Pixar, his animated-film powerhouse." 
Steve Jobs is now Disney’s biggest shareholder and sits on the board of directors.

Also very high on the list is Disney and Pixar Animation Studios Chief Creative Officer and director extrordinaire John Lasseter; Finding Nemo and WALL•E director Andrew Stanton; and The Incredibles and Ratatouille director Brad Bird (all tied at #28).

Other Pixar-related persons of interest on the list include Disney CEO Bob Iger (at #35) famous for reuninting Pixar with Disney and Tom Hanks (at #34) the voice of Woody in Toy Story and Toy Story 2, as well as the upcoming 2010 sequel Toy Story 3. Also listed is George Lucas (at #23) known for directing the Star Wars series and owning the Lucasfilm Graphics Group that would later be bought by Steve Jobs and become Pixar.

Great to see Pixar being recognized for their impact on the world.

    Lasseter and Bird, yes. But STANTON? Goodness me, that’s a stretch. His interviews review quite the large ego.

    Oo Bob Iger get ready for the David and Golieth remarks for around Walt Disney Studios from your people, the’ll make a meal out of you coming in 35# on the List Bob Iger, and John Lasseter coming in A 3 way tie at 28#.

    Question is will you be able to handle that Bob Iger,or will you feel your Achievements were of no importance and of overlooked because of Pixar and John Lasseter running your show now at WDC/WDAS ect.

    How is it that Staton came in at 28 tied with Brad Bird and John Lasseter,that was one I didn’t see coming,good to see Original founder of Pixar George Lucas on the list at 23# as well.
