Pixar back to Disney? Say it ain't so?
Will Pixar go back to Disney and renew their distribution deal? Time will tell. According to an article in The New York Times renewing with Disney is just one of the options chief executive Steven Jobs is considering when their current deal with Disney expires after Cars is released this time next year.
"We are not going to make a decision until the last possible moment," Jobs said. Jobs says a major reason why are the changes in executive positions at the studios in upcoming months. Sherry Lansing, Paramount's chairwoman, recently said she would leave when her contract ends in 2005, and Disney chief executive Michael Eisner will retire when his contract ends in September, 2006. :::Mack swears he hears cheering when he typed that:::
Given the proven and almost guaranteed success that each Pixar film has in the market you would think that studios would be clamoring to get in line to offer Pixar a deal. According to an article over at ComingSoon Jobs has admitted that two other studios, Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox, could provide the type of distribution deal they're looking for.
Personally? I think it's time for Pixar to move to greener pastures and try a deal with another studio. I would think that they would get more attention to themselves instead of sharing the limelight with Disney. That's how it's always been. Pixar and DISNEY! They needed the name before to get people to come see their movies. They've proven now they know what they're doing and they rule like lords at what they do.
That and I loathe Disney.
So much anger.
