Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my greatest pleasure and ultimate sadness to report that Pixar Animation is no more. At least as it existed as an independent animation studio. Pixar shareholders approved the deal on Friday and it became official shortly there after. While the name will remain it is now just another division of the behemoth that is The Walt Disney Company. Pixar is dead. Long live Pixar. (NY Times story)
