The Bumpy Road to ‘Cars’, Possibly Pixar’s Most Contentious Movie

In the early days of 2006, the Walt Disney Company made a dramatic change whose impacts are still being felt today. Michael Eisner had once been the CEO of the Disney conglomerate, and while he’d grasped a modicum of the success that Pixar Animation Studios would bring, he’d always been standoffish to the i...

25 Years Ago, ‘Indiana Jones Adventure’ Redefined What a Theme Park Ride Could Be

As we embark upon a new decade, the concept of what “Disney” is will likely change on a wider scale than ever before. What does Disney mean to you? In the previous century, Disney might have meant family films, animation, or something friendly and comforting. Now, Disney could mean the action-heavy fare of Marvel, or the science-fiction worlds of Avatar or Star Wars , or the irreverent and adult comedy of The Simpsons , or the technologically daring storytelling of Pixar. Disney is a...

Exploring the Legacy of Former Disney CEO Bob Iger and How the Company Changed Under His Watch

Robert Iger served as the CEO of the Walt Disney Company for just under 15 years. It’s hard to emphasize exactly how massive an impact Iger made in his tenure at Disney, one which concluded quite abruptly on Tuesday, when he announced   that he would immediately transition into a new role as executive chairman before stepping down permanently in 2021. An air of mystery surrounded the announcement, because while Iger’s contract was up at the end of next year, there was little expectation that...

Innovate or Die: Disney’s Iger writes his last act as idea man

Bob Iger, in a flash, went from CEO to idea guy. On Tuesday he suddenly called it a career as CEO of Walt Disney Co. The only drama was his timing: There are apparently no health issues, personal scandals, company financial problems or unhappy shareholders to blame. He stepped down from perhaps the most wanted job in Corporate America on his own terms. It’s a stunning move that virtually nobody saw coming. Sure, he was working on his last contract with the company through 2021. And at age 69, wh...

The Story of Circle 7 Animation, the Studio That Threatened to Replace Pixar

When you can help write your own history, you can tell a slightly different story than the truth. Such is the case with Pixar Animation Studios, arguably one of the most influential creative units in all of Hollywood in the 25 years since it released its first feature-length animated film, Toy Story . Pixar is, of course, synonymous with the Walt Disney Company and has been for a long time. Its characters have been seen in films, on TV, and serve as the core elements of a lot of themed attr...
