Joe Johnston is an American film director and former effects artist at IndustrialLightAndMagic. He's known for directing action films (mainly under the Disney branches like Touchstone or Marvel) that appeal to broad audiences. He's one of the most triumphant examples in Hollywood that action films don't need to DarkerAndEdgier, [[RatedMForManly R-rated]], or [[BestKnownForTheFanservice full of gratuitous sex]] in order to be entertaining.
