I finally had a chance to watch The Incredibles (Disney / Pixar) this evening and boy, what an incredible flick! It just seemed like another fun movie to watch, much like Monsters, Inc. and A Bug’s Life and just about every movie that the two companies have done together over the past nine years. Come to think of it, I think I’ve actually enjoyed more of the recent joint ventures than I have any of the straight-up animated features that Disney has put out since establishing their relationship with Pixar…with the exception of Hercules, that is…

I think it’s going to be kind of sad when the two part ways after this next film, which is said to fulfill contractual obligations on Disney‘s behalf. I’m sure they’re simply doing it to save money, with talks of already planning to develop a Toy Story 3 in house, but I’ve just got this feeling that there’s going to be something missing up on that screen. Disney‘s got the wonderful stories, Pixar makes them come alive – that’s always how it’s worked in the past! Here’s to hoping that Pixar is able to keep things afloat after drifting away from the giant, and that we don’t merely end up with nothing more than a handful of Shrek clones from them while the mouse is busy counting his money. 🙁
