Pixar And Disney Part Ways

from the wow dept

While there were rumors a year ago that Steve Jobs was looking to get back at Michael Eisner's trashing of Apple's "Rip, Mix, Burn" campaign by signing a deal with some other studio once Pixar's deal was up, most people thought they'd patch up their differences and keep going. Looks like that's not the case. Steve Jobs announced today that talks between Pixar and Disney have broken down, and Pixar will be looking for a new movie studio to work with. This isn't such a big deal for Pixar, but could be even more trouble for Disney (who's having plenty of trouble already).

    Re: No Subject Given

    If Pixar chooses not to co-finance those sequels, as it has the right to do, Disney stands to make more money on them than the studio would have had the partnership survived. That's a mixed blessing, analysts say, noting that Disney's animation track record of late hasn't been nearly as strong as Pixar's.

    Who else is going to do it, DreamWorks?

    I hope not.
