Hi... =D

Ive just seen this in two brazilian news sites. Both refer to the Wall Street Journal:

negotiating a deal doesn not mean it will happen. like the last line in one of the links said


The Reuters report included comment from several analysts who thought an outright sale of Pixar was unlikely.

more importantly,
how [or why] would that have a good/bad impact on cg film [or artists]?

i already see someone crying out "NOOOOU" .....

i would think its a good move [from a busineess stand point] since disney has been their publisher for sometime.

The general perception of the problem is, Disney spent the past half decade (or more, depending on how you look at it) crashing and burning all creative energy they owned, associating themselves with "garbage products", rather than "quality products", as it used to be.

Pixar on the other hand, have been able to produce critically and commercially successful hit after hit.

If Disney buys Pixar, the fear will be that Pixars hands will make Disney garbage.
