Disney Plots Pixar-Less Toy Story 3

Toy Story The Disney-Pixar relationship has been on shaky ground for a while, but a new development might kill it dead. The Hollywood Reporter says Disney is working on "Toy Story 3" without Pixar.

Disney owns the rights to "Toy Story" sequels, but the Reporter says the studio held off on a third installment because of its Pixar pact.

So much for that. Disney is now setting up a digital animation facility and recruiting animators.

Disney and Pixar are contracted for one more film (2005's "Cars"). After that, both companies are free to part.

"Toy Story 3" is in the early, early stages of development, so scripting and casting information have not been released. "Toy Story" star Tom Hanks recently expressed reservations about the third "Story," but reservations tend to disappear when projects (and contracts) come together.

We'll be following future developments on our "Toy Story" spotlight page. -- Mac Slocum
