Maybe someone can corroborate this for me... I've talked to two friends this week who also work in animation. They are on two different coasts, and both said to me, "of course, you've heard that Disney is phasing out animation in their Burbank studio" This floored me. Am I completely out of the loop?! According to both friends, one, a friend of Tom Sito (union president) and the other a friend of John Canemaker (Disney authority at large) Disney is giving traditional 2D the heave ho in favor of a computer animation based studio....largely anticipating Pixar's departure from the Disney family. 2D features will be eventually relegated to the Florida studio....and Don Hahn is likely to be named as the head of feature animation. Has anyone heard this? Read this? I hope this is a bad dream.
