Walt Disney Co's board of directors is expected to meet by Monday to consider buying Pixar Animation Studios Inc in a deal that could revive Disney as the world's dominant animation studio and give computer pioneer Steve Jobs a new platform of power.

A source familiar with the talks said it was not clear whether the board meeting would be held on Sunday or Monday or whether board members were prepared to vote on a proposed merger of animation hit factory Pixar with Disney.
