Disney is DEAD.

You heard it here first. Stick a fork in them, they're done. After 2006, their last cash cow, Pixar, will go looking for a new distributor.

I think old man Walt is laughing in his urn now. Kill traditional animation at the Mouse House, watch the rest of the company die. In a weird way, this is justice. The reason why Pixar movies like "Finding Nemo," "Monsters, Inc," "A Bug's Life," and the "Toy Story" movies were so damn good was not because traditional 2D animation is outmoded, but because John Lasseter and his buddies know how to tell a good story. Kind of like what Disney did back in the day.

Not even Roy Disney can save them now.
