    Re: Bob Iger talks to CNN - CNN.com

    Of course. The interview starts with CNN ( I can't tell who the reporter is) asking Bob Iger (who's standing with Expedition Everest behind him and a pond) about the ride, has he gone on it, and what he thinks about it. He says that he loves it and that its even better at night (though he says that you have to love roller coasters to fully appreciate it). It also shows some really cool shots of the interior of the ride as well as the Yeti 'attacking' the trains. The animatronics look fantastic.

    Bob Iger continues by saying that the parks are a huge priority to Disney right now because that is where most people experience Disney outside of the theater, so he is going forward with the belief that the parks (and especially Disney World) need to become the worlds' premier family theme parks.

    He also talked about the Pixar purchase. Disney, he said, was founded on quality animated features and that he plans to bring that back. Pixar is one way that he plans to make that happen. He is also excited about Steve Jobs joining the board once the Pixar deal closes. He believes that Steve Jobs will bring to the table fresh, new, innovative ideas that the company needs.

    One of the reasons I liked the interview is because I thought he came across pretty well. After reading DisneyWar, I expected him to come across as kind of wooden, but he seems relaxed and approachable. It's also good to hear him stress animation as being central to Disney as a company.

    Unfortunately I didn't get the greatest video feed...

    I love how he skirted the downside of the job... Saying the challenge is maintainting creativity in the company... (Not a bad answer, he gets it...)

    Apparently, Expedition is a "Great" and "Unique" Experience!
