I think this is beneficial for Disney. If they resign with Pixar, they need to reorganize the current contract. Then Disney wouldn't earn as much. Who knows what's going to happen after 2 more movies. Pixar cannot possibly turn out one hit after another.

Pixar is moving on completely, they're not renegotiating the contract with Disney. The two companies could not agree on a new deal and Pixar has already stated that they'll use a different distributor. So Disney screwed themselves out of the only animation that actually makes really good money...


Don't bet on Pixar not continuing their success with future films. It's no accident that they've developed films like Toy Story, Monsters Inc and Finding Nemo.

Beneficial for Disney? You are probably the only person on this planet who thinks that. Especially with the turmoil the stock and management has been in lately.

I have a feeling that this could hurt special features related to "The Incredibles" and "Cars" on DVD, which Disney will be releasing as part of their original contract.

If someone from Pixar says that they want to put a commentary or some special features on the discs, I can see Disney saying "Too damn bad. Take a hike."

Pixar should just distribute their own films. After all, as good as they are, why let someone else reap the rewards.

Disney Pixar Breakup

I think if this split hurts anyone , its going to be disney. Pixar will be off making great features (they haven't made a bad one yet). And Disney will be well on there way to releasing Brother Bear 2: Electric Bugaloo.
