Pixar Kills Cheapo "Toy Story 3"
You read it here first. Popsurfing predicted new Disney animation head John Lasseter would put a stop to cheapo, direct-to-DVD sequels to Pixar gems like "Toy Story." According to the UK's Independent, that's exactly what he did on Wednesday. No word yet on how Lasseter will deal with the highly lucrative flood of direct-to-DVD sequels for Disney classics like "Bambi II" (which is out in ten days.) (Perhaps I missed the story about Lasseter kiboshing "Toy Story 3"when my computer was down? A Monday story by Variety about Lasseter taking over makes no mention of it, oddly enough.)
