I did hear about this on CNN and it's a sad situation because they will continue to make movies. I really feel for the people that will loose their jobs.

It sucks seeing this as a person that loves animation and would like to join it one day. Guess you just never know when an animation job will be gone....

That is terrible but their output has been awful as of late. There are only so many screwball children's movies you can release ever year. I remember when Disney used to put out only 1 or 2 animated features a year and they were all memorable; now its like 3 or 4 childrens films a month and they are all highly forgettable.

Only films Disney released last year for kids was like Big Hero 6, Muppets, and Planes 2. Except for Planes 2, the other two were memorable.
