Future of Blue Sky Animation Studios unsure following Fox sale to Disney

I've really liked their roster of films for the most part, hope Disney finds the means to keep them going and not fold them into their animation studio or into Pixar or at least finds a buyer for them.

Waiting for the eventual Ice Age/Frozen mashup.

Dammit, don't give them any ideas (not that they probably didn't already think about it, lol)

The Peanuts movie and the first Ice Age were probably the only things I really liked from Blue Sky. They're output seems fairly erratic, but I'd hate to see a different animation studio go away and only have Disney/Pixar around doing high end larger budget stuff.

The Peanuts Movie was fantastic. Iím not sure if Iíve ever seen any of their other film though. Iíve seen bits and pieces of some of the Ice Age movies but havenít watched them all the way.

Rio was great and I think their best film. Really like Peanuts. Much better than it had any right being. Haven't seen Ferdinand yet but reviews seem good.

I agree I'd hate for them to fold and be left with Disney and dreamworks. Although Disney/Pixar had done so much better than their competitors in recent years it almost doesn't matter.

The Peanuts Movie was sheer quality by the standards of today's Hollywood. The rest of their output seems fairly hit or miss, though I tended to like them better than DreamWorks animation.

Peanuts was the only thing I've seen.

Doesn't really seem like a loss.

And that article is complete speculation. Nothing is known how the acquisition will go down. All of 21st Century and subsidiaries could become a banner under the Disney Brand.

Future of Blue Sky Studios in question after Disney/Fox merger

I've enjoyed their movies, from Ice Age and Robots up to their current ones - hope Disney decides to keep them around...

Essentially the same thing you posted two years ago...

I don't see Disney keeping them around, sadly.

I would be shocked if they ever made another film after whatever is already in the pipeline, unless Disney decides to sell them off.

As mentioned Peanuts is their crowning achievement but the first few Ice Age flicks were fun.

Sad to see one company own so much of Hollywood.

It's not like Disney is cranking out a ton of quality animated movies. Yes, they have hits, but what harm would there be to have other animated titles coming out and making bank on them? It seems like Disney is more focused now on live action and not many animated titles.

Within about a year they've released Coco, Incredibles 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and Toy Story 4. It'd say that's quite a busy release schedule.
