Not only did owning Pixar give them the opportunity to produce world class films but it also gave them access to Pixar’s characters and animations which could be used as another marketing technique in its theme parks. Disney was the last to jump on the bandwagon with regards to the animation scene so they needed a major advancement to restore their reputation and collaborating with Pixar gave them the opportunity to compete with rivals such as DreamWorks. Lastly by purchasing Pixar, Disney gained an added benefit from an increase in market shares. This allowed Disney to have greater control of the market and thus increase their profits. 9 years later it seems Disney are now setting out on their own ventures without Pixar and these films such as ‘Tangled’ which grossed over $600 million at worldwide box office and the renowned ‘Frozen’ are becoming consistently stronger.

However, enjoy seems like a wrong word to describe it, because Disney have its way to make these animated films deeper than the Pacific Ocean. Kids would indeed love it, but adults would have to shed a tear or two every time they watch these animated films.
The deal was a mutually beneficial transaction as it combined the computer animation power of Pixar with the marketing and distribution strength of Disney. Disney and Pixar can now collaborate without the barriers that come from two different companies with two different sets of shareholders. They should focus on what is most important, creating innovative stories, characters and films that delight millions of people around the world.
