    Dreamworks is the anti-Pixar.... not thinking Disney will sign a deal with them.

      It is my understanding that this deal would not include distribution for the animation division, just movies and TV.

        My heart stopped for just a second. Why did Universal back out? This would have been the best decision they've done in awhile!!

          Note to Iger-

          MAKE THIS DEAL!

          Yeah, I know it is a lot of money, and we are a bit short... But let's be honest here... Our studio is sputtering... I think it is because when you lost the Weinsteins; you, Mr. Iger, lost some of your movie deal making juju...

          But creating a relationship with Dreamworks right now makes a LOT of sense... Even if it is only as a distributorship partner...

          I do realise there are some problems doing this, however... We can discuss those later.

          Thank you.

            Story is, during negotiations, DreamWorks asked for more money. Universal said no, DreamWorks secretly approached Disney, Universal pulls out.

            That's at least my understanding.

                I wouldn't mind seeing Mr. Roger Rabbit return.

                    Dreamworks animation is separate from Dreamworks Studios. Outside of that, Disney would distrute all of Dreamworks live-action and tv programming. So any future Spielberg film would come from Disney, like his Lincloin biopic. Also two huge people involved with Roger Rabbit are at Disney now, Robert Zemmeick and Steven.

                      Spielberg Deal With Disney for 6 Years, 30 Films, FT Reports

                      By Sylvia Wier

                      Feb. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Filmmaker Steven Spielberg is close to announcing a six-year, 30-film distribution deal with the Walt Disney Co., the Financial Times reported, citing no one.

                      The deal may be announced as soon as tomorrow, the newspaper said. Cash is involved in the transaction, though it will be in the form of a loan rather than an equity stake, the newspaper said. The FT put no value on the transaction.
