Is Disney already playing politics with the Toy Story 3 crew? Coming from Disney, such news wouldn't exactly be a surprise. The latest is that they are still trying to talk the potential director (the same guy I've been talking about) into jumping onboard. Although hesitant, this guy seemed ready and had re-entered negotiations when they sprung some new information on him at the last minute. It seems that Disney has told a certain previous editor at Pixar that he could be the co-director. Further, Disney is picking the team to surround the director without his input. Some feel the choices are purely political (so they can brag about bringing in Pixar people to head up the various departments). While I don't think it is purely political, I'm sure it has a lot to do with it.
Let the poaching begin?
