Disney Looking To Buy Pixar
Well, duh. They should have done this years ago. Jobs would become the single biggest shareholder of Disney stock in the reported deal. But it's all pointless unless the creative talent is on board too and they're put in charge of Disney animation. If that happened, they'd probably be smart enough to continue hand-drawn animation (which Disney has run away from) and they'd certainly put the kibosh on cheapo direct-to-DVD sequels to "Finding Nemo," "Toy Story," et al.
