Disney and Pixar Partner Up

The headlines have been all a buzz with Disney and Pixar speculation. Well, the cat's out of the bag and Steve Jobs is now a proud part of the Disney board of directors, bringing along all of the good folks at Pixar Animation to the Disney fold.

What does this acquisition mean? First off, it means that blockbuster feature animated films will be produced more frequently and Disney will show a trendier, more technically advanced visage to the world.

An Increased Demand for Voice Actors by Disney Directors

One of the most important elements of this assumed influx of animated films is the ever increasing demand for voice actors. Surely these two heavy weights will be releasing a significant amount of products in the coming years, from the animations themselves, to cartoons, video games, computer games and commercial endeavours.

Possible Re-Branding of Disney or Pixar

New opportunities might include a complete rebranding of the Disney company with some Pixar spunk visually and audibly. Voice actors may have to rerecord everything including the Disney and Pixar telephone systems, corporate presentations, advertisements, Disney and Pixar company documentaries, podcasts, and more to reflect the new status quo.

Disney Voice Acting Opportunities

No doubt, the most exciting opportunities include voice acting in the new films that their partnership yields. For instance, Disney is releasing "The Wild" in April 2006. Will this be the last Disney production free of Pixar influence? If so, maybe the team will be looking for new voice talents to forge their relationship and combine their collective voice casting expertise.

Looking forward to everything that this bold, inspirational acquisition has to offer...
