Disney buys Pixar: TV films in 720p until Blu-Ray?

Kevin C. Tofel

So now Steve Jobs has to wear Mickey Mouse ears since Disney bought Pixar for $7.4 billion or more depending on who you ask; that'll get you a ton of "Nemo" for your fish tank. Aside from the new head gear for Stevie, does this mean that we'll only see Pixar movies at home in 720p now? Since Disney owns ABC who broadcasts in 720p, that's what we're thinking. It's not a major issue by any means; the Pixar movies previously shown on ABC have looked truly outstanding. Besides, the Pixar films on next gen DVDs (last we heard, the Mouse was in the Blu-Ray camp) should make this a moot point once consumers adopt the new technologies.
