    My #1 request: Let Andrew Stanton and Brad Bird write and direct their own animated features again. Please. Finding Nemo and The Incredibles haven’t just raised the bar… they’ve taken the bar, bent it into a pretzel, and jammed it down the throat of Dreamworks animation.

    If so, Peter, what did Pixar get in return? Control of Disney’s animation wing.

    Being the trusting Pixar fanboy I am, I’d say (for once), “The hostages have been freed & everybody wins!”

    I know there are some who are concerned about this merger. With Steve Jobs being the largest shareholder in Disney currently, I’m not worried about who’ll have the last say about quality when it comes to Pixar’s films. If Jobs has any say in the matter, it’ll be Lasseter & Pixar. From a purely business-minded POV, that’s where the strongest (by far) track record has been over the last 10 years. Jobs is right, stack up Pixar’s last 3 films next to Disney’s last 3 animated movies & you’ll see what I mean. It’s no contest!

    Then again, there is the argument that Disney only threatened to make Toy Story 3 as a way of bringing Pixar back to the bargaining table — so one could argue that Disney held the Toy Story series hostage, and Pixar fell for it!
