Pixar and Disney

There's a great article at CNN by John Lasseter of Pixar about the history and future of pixar and their relationship with Disney.

On the making of Toy Story:

"What was interesting is that Disney kept pushing us to make the characters more edgy. That was the word that they kept using. We soon realized this was was not a movie we wanted to make - the characters were so "edgy" they had become unlikable. The characters were yelling, they were cynical, they were always making fun of everybody, and I hated it."

The fact that disney bought pixar made everyone nervous, but thankfully according to the article, the Pixar people will be the creative directors at disney; meaning Pixar won't get worse, Disney will get better.
