Per a user report:
Tonight, Disney and Pixar rolled out their big summer flick, \Finding Nemo" about a papa fish on a quest to find his lost son (according to the poster, "Sea It"). But before the lights went down, Steve Jobs was there to introduce PIxar's work.
Preceded by Robert Goulet singing "You've Got A Friend in Me" and escorted to the stage by a chorus line dancer, Jobs spoke about how Pixar was going to realize its goal of releasing one quality picture per year, starting with "Nemo" and followed by "The Incredibles" and "Cars". Then he went on about how Pixar has grossed over $1.7 billion at the box office, and how proud he was of the company. Jobs ended by introducing John Lassetter, the creative guru behind Pixar's success. No word on the long-term future of Disney and Pixars' production deal.
PS - And yes, he wore his trademark black shirt.
