I've been following the news of late about D & Ps separation and I've been doing some hard thinking. I LOVE both companies and their movies in the partnership they've had for the past 10 years. There's talk of both cos. getting back together but now that Disney is committing to starting another 'Toy Story', word is it'll make it harder for both sides to kiss and make up.
I work for Disney as a merchandiser and what pisses me off is how the greed factor has been pushed up so high. Disney AND pixar are both making a killing in this contract and I don't see why Jobs [Steve] is seeking out more money. If he loves his partnership with Disney so much, why doesn't he stay with them. He is, after all else, the CEO. He has final say, right? With 'The Incredibles' soaring past 100 mil and climbing and 'Cars' looking to be another smash hit for both sides, why take away the magic and replace it with money?
I'm glad 'Toy Story 3' is happening but it's like a zombie without its soul, ya know? TH and TA are saying they might not return and I feel without their voice talents, you may as well call the project "The Black Pearl"... the ship is sailing on, but just with soulless creatures with no heart. I'll be so sad if they $#!+ on this movie. TA and TH were the souls of TS 1 & 2 and it just wouldn't be the same with Patric Warburton and Tom Hanks' sound-alike brother. I see it going straight to video. I did read where it sounds like a theatrical release but we'll see. I also read where they're looking for "animation heavyweights" so that sounds promising. If anyone hears anything at all on the further developments on the D & P split or the future of TS3, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. What do you all think? I'm curious now. Chime in when ready...
