    What the future holds for Disney/Pixar

    Two years into the Disney purchase of Pixar and the future looks bright. As Wall.E delights test audiences and a line up of Pixar and Disney films begins to emerge, it is a great time to reflect on how the company got to this point and what the future may hold.


    Creative mergers have a tendency to destroy more value than they create, as one company changes the other and destroys part of the corporate culture. When Disney purchased Pixar for 7.4 billion in 2006, there were cheers but lots of worries over how it would all play out. Would Disney destroy Pixar? Would Pixar lose its edge and winning streak? Thankfully, this is one of those rare mergers which has enhanced both companies. So far, Disney CEO Bob Iger has allowed Pixar to maintain their independence while giving Pixar the full support of the Disney publicity machine.

    The New York Times details the Disney Pixar merger, how it has fared so far, as well as what the future may hold in their report: Disney and Pixar - The Power of the Prenup

    Great article and worth the read. It seemed very positive and well-balanced. There have been many great things said of Iger lately. The future looks good!


    Eddie: You mean to tell me you could have taken your hand out of those cuffs at any time?
    Roger: Not at any time. Only when it's funny.

    To put it simply, I hate what Disney's done to Pixar. Don't really want to get into it, but I think Disney's completely screwed Pixar over. I hope some investor, if not Mr. Jobs himself, pulls the plug and buys Pixar back.

    What could they possibly have done that would warrant having Pixar try and sever ties with Disney. So far everything I have seen looks pretty positive on both ends, Pixar still maintains their independence and is influencing the way that WDAS makes its movies. The only thing that I could see people might object to is Cars 2, but I will wait til that comes out to judge it.
