Promising Pixar Artist Dies at 27

Sad news coming from Emeryville this week, Justin Wright, a promising artist working in the Story department at Pixar, died this week from a heart attack. Justin was a heart transplant survivor, but by all accounts had the heart of a lion. Just visit Justin’s blog to get a feeling for his talent.

Ronnie Del Carmen has a tribute and a list of links to other websites remembering Justin’s remarkable life.

All the staff at The Disney Blog send our condolences to Justin’s family at home and at the studio.

  1. As a member of the viewing public I extend my
    condolences on the loss of such a wonderfully talented young man. My husband and I saw Wall E and Presto today….we had to find out more about Justin after seeing the memorium in the credits.
    Thank you for allowing us a place to share our thoughts.
