    I am sorry for those loosing their jobs, but maybe not so sorry for second rate sequels. Maybe Pixar will hire some of those people and take the helm of making other sequels from Disney instead....here's hoping...

    I believe that these animators are the ones that work more on the pixar side of things and are the makers of the sequals like The Little Mermaid 2, Lion King 1.5, you know...the straight to Disney/DVD. I do believe that they are recasting the some of the old-school animators.

    well then, I hate to say it, but this sounds like a good thing. kicking out the people who made the, in my opinion, junk and bringing back the classic animators.

    too bad for the people who lost their jobs, maybe they can get a job with Goodtimes Home Video making Disney knock-offs.

    I am sorry to hear that but Pixar will bring disney some great stories and some great animation. Still it is tough to be a Disney Animator these days.
