The Pixar Touch[edit]

A new editor has added a lot of new information to the article, using a book entitled The Pixar Touch by David Price as their source. The book does not have the proper {{cite book}} template applied, but it does use parenthetical cites to a degree. I've asked the editor on their talk page to provide some additional details. If this work is deemed reliable, I think some additional details about the inner workings of Pixar would be notable. Conversely, if this is mainly a gossip or tell-all book, then the edits would potentially fall under WP:NPOV. I believe we need additional details before we unintentionally bite this newcomer. --McDoobAU93 14:52, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

If there is a question of neutrality or reliability, then the new information should be removed from the article, pending confirmation of neutrality and reliability. It can always be added back, after a determination has been made.  Chickenmonkey  21:58, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
I was looking for a tag to add to the article before I found this entry in the talk. Personally, I feel like it reads like the beginning of an essay argument. It doesn't sound encyclopaedic, and the style of the addition was inconsistent with the rest of the article in its structure. If we get more information from the contributor about it, and it's retooled (or even expanded), feel free to undo my delete. 70.190.51.10 (talk) 05:32, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
I agree with User:McDoobAU93, User:Chickenmonkey and 51.10. Suggest - at the very least - an extensive rewrite to conform to WP:NPOV. IjonTichyIjonTichy (talk) 23:51, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

The Good Dinosaur[edit]

The following URL suggests that "The Good Dinosaur" has entered its production stage and thus can have its own article:

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=98454

(It has a picture from the film.) Any faulty info?? Georgia guy (talk) 00:57, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Per WP:NFF: "In the case of animated films, reliable sources must confirm that the film is clearly out of the pre-production process, meaning that the final animation frames are actively being drawn and/or rendered, and final recordings of voice-overs and music have commenced." This image would appear to be pre-production art, meaning this is not enough of an indicator that The Good Dinosaur is in full-on production mode. --McDoobAU93 18:58, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Pixar is not the studio with highest average gross.[edit]

"with its $602 million average gross by far the highest of any studio in the industry."

Marvel Studios has a higher average worldwide gross. http://boxofficemojo.com/franchises/chart/?id=avengers.htm

It should be changed, or specified that "the industry" refers to animated movies. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Denubis1 (talkcontribs) 20:03, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

No you are think about MCU which inculed all the Iron man Flims, Thor , incredible hulk, captain armerica and the Avengers. Marvel dose not. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.98.167.114 (talk) 10:02, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Is the date for the Disney acquisition right?[edit]

This page claims that Disney acquired Pixar on May 5, 2006. But here's a source that say it was on January 23, 2006: http://www.complex.com/tech/2013/01/the-15-most-important-tech-acquisitions-of-all-time/disney-buys-pixar So, does anyone no what the truth is? Ojr01 (talk) 23:41, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Wiki claims that the acquisition was completed on May 5, 2006, and according to the official press release, it was indeed. The deal was announced on January 24, 2006, with a press release saying: "Disney has agreed to acquire ... Pixar ... in an all-stock transaction, expected to be completed by this summer." So, the acquisition was a gradual process which had started even before the announcement: "The Boards of Directors of Disney and Pixar have approved the transaction..."--Carniolus (talk) 22:16, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
The difference in dates is easy to explain. Any merger between corporations necessarily starts with negotiations between the high-level execs at the companies, who then have to present the proposed deal to their respective boards of directors. They can announce the deal once both boards vote in favor, but the deal can't close until it's actually approved by the shareholders. That's why there's always lag time of several months between the announcement of a deal and when it closes. --Coolcaesar (talk) 05:12, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

question (with example) about No Future Films policy[edit]

i recently discovered this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:NFF#Future_films.2C_incomplete_films.2C_and_undistributed_films

Does a trailer like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vco0SpSz17g make Big Hero 6 verifiable/notable? (i'm fairly confident the video really was uploaded by Disney and not just someone calling themselves that.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.17.201.106 (talk) 08:03, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
