Disney has launched a creative new contest in a search for a photo of John Lasseter from 1977. It isn’t just any photo they are searching for. You see, during 1977 and 1978, the Pixar and Disney Animation Chief Creative Officer served as a tour guide on the famed Jungle Cruise ride at Disneyland.

Find a photo (which can be verified) and you can win a trip to the grand opening of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure! Check out the contest video and the full press release here. [Read more…]
