pixar to do 2D?

just saw this posted over at AICN, but haven't seen it here.

http://www.aint-it-cool-news.com/display.cgi?id=16604

heres a piece from it

"The word is that PIXAR is starting their own 2D Animation Division. A company that will use the PIXAR brand... that name which stands for supreme excellence, innovation and soul in animation today... and putting it behind the form that everyone there loves. 2D Animation.

The first film? Well, Brad Bird, who is wrapping up work on THE INCREDIBLES for Pixar is apparently going to be the goto guy on this to kick it all off."

LOL!
I hope this is true. What a slap in Disney's face if it is, especially if they go to someone else for distribution. They're the perfect company to show people that 2D isn't dead.

Pixar could do a feature using all sock puppets and it would rule. Those guys just know how to do stories.

That would be cool... a pixar muppet division!

haha! AS IF!! I'm sure this is just some hopeful rumour. I hope it puts ideas into PIXAR's heads though.

Well, we can dream can't we?

Yeah, I thought I was gonna get burned for posting the link. Its prob just a rumor, but glad to see other people get excited about it as well.

I don't like the idea of slapping Disney in the face.Too many great memories of past excellent movies and all else Disney.But Pixar and 2D would be just beautiful and fun to see.

I should have said slap Eisner in the face.
DisneyCorp blames 2D for their failures, so think of the irony if Pixar does a 2D feature that does terrific, after Disney just shut down their 2D department. It's sad, but you would have to appreciate the irony.

I had a hunch that this would happen as soon as i heard roy disney left. It would be awsome if pixar hired Disney to head up their 2d division.

If this is true, PIXAR is the new Disney!! Whooohaaa!!
Hope that the love Lasseter have towards japan animation especially Miyazaki, will have some influence in their 2D stuff.
