More Disney than Disney
I've been saying for some time now that Pixar is more Disney than Disney.

Why? Disney seems to have forgotten that it's all about the story.

Granted, many of us will go to a Pixar film now because it's a Pixar film, but we've been trained to believe that Pixar movies rock.

And we've had it beaten down into us that Disney's movies, well, don't. They've always had the potential to, but lately they haven't. Or at least the ones I've seen.

Since Pixar is retaining its name and separate headquarters, there's a good chance for Pixar's greatness to rub off on Disney and not the other way around. We can hope!
