ESPN Buys Pixar look for an animated sports film

Pixar Animation Studios, whose films have garnered critical acclaim with both domestic and overseas audiences, is being bought tomorrow by Disney for $7 billion. Steve Jobs, as the CEO of Pixar, will become the largest shareholder in Disney.

From what I understand Disney is paying more then $9.00 a share over what the real value is. I am going to predict that this is going to be another example of where the culture of the company that was bought takes over the buyer. I would also guess that Steve Jobs influence on the Disney board will be a huge positive
