Terrible Pixar News!!
Joe Ranft, the guy behind a lot of the story elements for movies like Toy Story, Finding Nemo, A Bug's Life and various others has died in a Car Crash just days ago out in California.

He was best known as the voice of the over-the-top caterpillar in A Bugs Life and Weezy the Penguin in the Toy Story movies.

If anyone has those DVD's, switch on the bonus features to get an idea about just how much he contributed to the studio. This is horrible news all-around.

He was only 45.

More Here

and a profile on him and his work Here.

Who knows how this will impact the quality of forthcoming projects.
