[I]According to Coming Soon and a post at Animation Nation, Pixar heads turned Disney bigwigs Ed Catmull and John Lasseter “announced to Feature Animation employees [Tuesday] that the ‘Toy Story 3’ production will end effectively [Tuesday]. They said that sequels should only be made if there is a really great story that demands it, and should be the domain of those who created the original film.”
An Associated Press article confirmed said news - “One immediate sign of Lasseter’s influence is that plans for Disney to make the long rumored sequel “Toy Story 3” on its own have been scrapped. If the film is made, it will be done by Lasseter and the other creators of the original film, the companies said”.[/I]
It seems like we finally have some people who know what they are doing back in the positions Disney needs them. It also seems very likely that not 0nly will hand drawn come back, but it will come back and be better and bigger stories than we have seen in recent years - Pixar people know their story telling.
