“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

Keep Pixar Independent!!!!!

Reported today, Pixar and Disney are in talks regarding Disney buying Pixar. THIS MUST BE STOPPED.

What can be done to stop this? Flood Steve Job’s mailbox, create online petitions. We need to stop this.

Pixar is one of the last great independent and successful story tellers on the planet. What they have done is revolutionary to the movie industry. Setting it on fire again in a genre that was becoming stiffled and uncreative, in the major studios like Disney.

While I know Pixar already has a cozy relationship with Disney, it always had the moxy, threat, and gumption to end that relationship if it wanted to, giving it leverage to do things that no directly owned Disney studio would do.

Katzenberg left for great reasons and was able to do amazing things OUTSIDE of the Princess’ Castle following on the success of Pixar’s innovations. He couldn’t have done Shrek or even the Prince of Egypt inside that studio and thus moved on to a place where he can.

Please for the love of all that is holy and glorious in animated storytelling, let’s do what we can to stop this merger!!!!!

Tell me ideas, give me things to do. I’ll lead it with anyone’s help.

    I totally agree with you. Disney is like a big monster munching in on all the cute little fairy tale creatures around the world. Would you believe even Winnie the Puh sold himselve to them?!

    Ufortunately in the real world there are no heroes left to save us.
