Disney is buying Pixar for $7.4 billion. I thought the only good way for this deal to go down would be if Pixar would maintain a lot of creative independence, and it seems like it will since several of its key executives will be handling most of Disney’s animation division. Jobs takes yet another step up in the world . . .
Of course, this will have little bearing on Pixar’s film this year, Cars, but it will be interesting to see if this starts a downward turn for Pixar’s films. Honestly, Cars hasn’t gotten me that excited yet, so maybe this is the beginning of the end for Pixar already!
