Pixar Finally Bought By Disney

Okay, so all of the other blogs (Cinematical, Coming Soon, Aint It Cool) you might read have reported that Disney has dropped Pixar into it's giant gaping maw. Pixar is evidently worth $7.4 billion. There was the normal "we will preserve their culture," and "great opportunity for both companies" and "we don't think Steve Jobs will be impossible to deal with." You know all the stuff you legally have to say when you merge.

This is really good for Disney. I know it, you know it, your 5 year old niece knows it. Is it good for Pixar? Well, they get a distributer with no more worries over Disney destroying their brand with inferior releases. They also lose a competitor in Disney. Finally, they get $7.4 billion. That's nice too. Only time will really tell if Pixar is able to remain Pixar as part of Disney. --Terrence Ryan
