Toy Story 3 Cancelled

I am so relieved to hear this morning that Disney’s proposed Toy Story 3 project which would have been produced without the assistance of Pixar Animation Studios has since been cancelled in light of the company’s acquisition of the computer animation studio. I figured this was merely a strategic move by Bob Iger to get Steve Jobs and Pixar Animation to give in to their buy-out offer, but there was still a part of me that said they were serious about the project (that’s what years of having Michael Eisner as Disney’s Chairman/CEO has done to my sense of judgment about the company) and that if they forward with it the project would be an absolute disaster.
