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)

query[edit]

should someone mention in the traditions section about the fact that every Pixar film includes a short film that precedes it as a demonstration of their technology or something? Visokor (talk) 14:31, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

edit war re inclusion of class action suit[edit]

Simple broken link[edit]

Hi, I'am reviewing this article for a school project and I noticed that one of the reference links is no longer available. It is number 72. "Pixar: 20 Years of Animation". Pixar. Retrieved June 28, 2010. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jv19965 (talkcontribs) 04:26, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Infobox, missing Steve Jobs?[edit]

Why is there no reference to Steve Jobs as a founder in the Info box? or even as a key person?

If he is not considered a founder, then it also means there is incorrect information on his own page since that page lists him as founder and CEO of Pixar.74.104.150.176 (talk) 20:59, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

From what I've been able to dig up, he did not help found Pixar.[1] He purchased an already founded company and became its CEO. Alvy Ray Smith is very adamant about this but, of course, he's not really an unbiased source.[2] I've added a note to talk page for Steve Jobs. HollywoodCowboy (talk) 17:58, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
