Following the recent string of hits that Walt Disney Animation Studios has celebrated (Tangled, Wreck-it Ralph, Frozen, Big Hero 6, Zootopia), The Walt Disney Company has decided that to embrace the full potential of brilliant work from both Pixar and Disney Animation, a new animation studio will be created in a merger of the two beginning in 2017. The merger will include Pixar Animation Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and the Disney subsidiary, Disneytoon Studios, and will be creatively lead by CCO John Lasseter and President Ed Catmull. Join me in welcoming Disney-Pixar Animation Studios to the world!
