What is to become of Disney Animation? Is the brand already too watered down by the direct to video sequals and television quality animation passed off as feature animation? People are getting concerned.

I’ll tell you why people are concerned. They think Disney’s lost its
touch. Whether the Mickey Mouse company decides to hand off the next Toy Story
flick to one of the computer animation studios that it is mentoring or
simply tackle the creative process in-house, if Pixar doesn’t play an
active role, there are some who feel that the franchise will be ruined.

A recent column at the Motely Fool looks at these and other matters. It’s worth a read.
