Conventional wisdom would suggest otherwise, but despite the breakup of Disney and Pixar, Disney still controls the characters and the concepts of Toy Story (and all the Pixar films that were made while the co-production deal was in place).

Disney is going to go through with making 'Toy Story 3'. I don't trust Disney with being able to produce Toy Story 3. This is the company that created this type of entertainment. This is how much Disney has fallen in my estimation.

I dread to see what will happen to 'Toy Story 3'.

Randomed in - hi!

Couldn't agree more, I think Pixar was disney's last chance at greatness.

They showed some balls with Lilo, but its been Pixars work that has kept them at the top.

It gets worse though, you heard the rumours that they are set to start "recreating" their classics using Toy Story style computer visuals ?
Pinochio being likely first candidate.

I think the layout of your journal is absolutely sublime and I am 200% jealous of it. Big Thumbs up.

Let's assume you'll see this message. . .
I wish I was more in the habit of responding to comments earlier... Anyway, thanks for liking my journal style, but I can't take any more credit for it than I can for the user icon. This journal is in one of the new styles that that they made for the S2 styling. It's all prefabricated.

Anyway, about Disney, I think far too much of the problem is executive interference with the stories and production, mostly with Eisner and one of his underlings (I wish I had his name... if you do a quick read of Jim Hill you'll probably figure out who it is I can't figure out.)

This was actually a stub piece I was going to add to in rewrite, but since I got two favorible comments to it, I decided to leave it as is. I wanted to note that Disney isn't suffering from a creativity drought, but that they seem to go out of their way to demoralize and undervalue their talent.

*nod* I read this in Newsweek. They also can produce direct-to-video sequels to any of the other Pixar works they've got, including The Incredibles and Cars.
