It looks like the Toy Story franchise will be milked for all its worth by Disney after Pixar's departure from the company. Toy Story 3 will be made without Pixar. www.rottentomatoes.com/news/comments/?entryid=150487 This is the price Pixar paid for trying to renegotiate a better deal with their distributor. Disney have no chance of creating a Toy Story which will be half as good as either of the first two films; Pixar wrote the book on CGI films so they are leaving big shoes to fill. Disney are short-sighted fools. Everyone will compare their Toy Story to those by Pixar. They should try making Mickey Mouse & Co. CGI films instead; that would be a fresh start for Disney and a more exciting prospect than a road movie with the Toy Story cast. As for the intelectual property they own, Disney should continue to make games, toys, books, etc. I do not see any problem with merchandise based on Pixar's characters, but a flop movie would surelly de-value the intellectual properties owned by Disney.
