Pixar and Disney back together

Recommended Posts

glad to hear it. this tag team has made some great animated movies.

Steve Jobs' Pixar Animation Studios is likely to renew a lucrative movie-making partnership with Disney, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Despite publicly backing out of talks with Disney in January and making the rounds of other Hollywood studios looking for a partner, Jobs has come to believe that the best home for Pixar is at Disney after all, sources said.

A reunion would mark a significant victory for Disney CEO Michael Eisner (search), who has long had an acrimonious relationship with Jobs.

Pixar's decision earlier this year to end discussions with Disney over an extension of their deal became a focal point for angry shareholders looking to oust Eisner.

But it appears Eisner called Jobs' bluff when he dug in and refused to renew the deal on the significantly less lucrative terms that Pixar had been proposing.

Under the current deal, which expires at the end of 2005, Disney and Pixar split the profits on the movies evenly; Disney also receives a 12.5 percent distribution fee. By some estimates Disney and Pixar could split some $1 billion from their most recent hit, "Finding Nemo." (search)

I believe the movie is called SHARK TALES. I saw the previews of it and it looks like a great animation. 8)
