Jimmy Hayward

Jimmy Hayward is widely renowned for his work in feature film animation. His studio directorial debut, Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! starring Jim Carrey and Steve Carell, was a huge success, earning nearly $300 million worldwide. Jonah Hex marks his live-action feature directorial debut.

Hayward gained early directorial prominence as a commercial director before venturing into television in the nascent years of CGI as one of the original animators of ABC's pioneering computer-animated series Reboot.

He was quickly recruited by Pixar Animation to work as animator on the groundbreaking film Toy Story, followed by Toy Story 2, A Bug's Life, Monster's Inc. and Finding Nemo.
