Disney Jobs

Posted on Tuesday, Jan 24th 2006

The deal has gone through, of course, Jobs joins the Disney Board, and Lasseter takes charge of animation. Good news across the board. Market likes it, so does Silicon Valley … this little victory over Hollywood.

Now, what?

R: The enormously talented Lasseter needs to come up with a cast of popular characters a la TinTin, Asterix, Dilbert, etc. which in micro-content format can delight iPod audiences. In an exclusive distribution deal with Apple, Disney will have immediate access to the market and rake in beaucoup, hugely profitable bucks.

Fast forward into the future where the Apple iPhone is ready … the same franchise would win them further viewership.
