Emma Thompson Shares Strongly Worded Letter On Why She Left Skydance Animation’s ‘Luck’
  |  @   |  

The fallout of Skydance Animation hiring of John Lasseter continues. Last week, Emma Thompson left her role in Alessandro Carloni‘s animated feature Luck. Although she didn’t give a specific reason as to why she was leaving at the time, many suspected that it had to do with her working with a company who knowingly hired someone like Lasseter, who had been exiled from Disney and Pixar after allegations of him engaging in sexual misconduct surfaced. It would only be a few months after when Skydance Animation announced they had hired the disgraced former animation head. And it would be a decision that many, especially those inside the company, were very unhappy with.

Now Thompson is explaining why she exited the project, in a newly released letter that criticizes Skydance’s decision and the failed attempts to justify the hiring. More on the report and the full letter below.
