    Isn't it about time for Eisner to receive his year end bonus? The Orlando animators are probably being axed to fund the big ME's 2003 bonus!

    What 2D animation in the future? Disney has made it clear that after Home on the Range is released, there will be no more traditional animation from Disney Studios. All Disney animation from then on will be CG.

    The following came from slashdot.com.

    May Kasahara writes "This is something which has been the talk amongst animators for the past couple of weeks: Walt Disney Feature Animation is in the process of halting all work on traditionally-animated features and going completely CG. Supposedly, all of their animators-- even staunch traditionalists such as Glenn Keane-- are being trained on 3D computer animation techniques. The last hand-drawn high-budget Disney feature scheduled for release is Home on the Range, which is due out next April. It appears that Disney is bowing to the supposed pressures of the market, even though the hand-drawn Lilo and Stitch was considered a success and the all-CG Dinosaur (done at Disney's now-defunct FX house The Secret Lab) was not. However, I believe there's another factor at work: Pixar's contract with Disney is set to expire soon, and the revered CG house has been making their own demands of Disney for the contract's renewal."

    The creators of Brother Bear, Aaron Blaise, Chuck Williams and Robert Walker, have announced that they have signed a new contract with Walt Disney Feature Animation. The three animation specialists have agreed to make their next feature for Disney distribution, under which Williams will be the producer while Blaise and Walker both take on the roles direction. Blaise, Williams, and Walker have been involved and inspirational filmmakers since the late 1980’s, working at Disney’s animation studio located in Florida.
