| A very interesting look behind the scenes...
... from a workers point of view, at Disney as a business and the people running and leading this big-machine-of-a-corporation.

From the workers it seems that they were tossed back and fourth. they love their job, but it was and properly still is a very stressful place to work.

I didn't know all the facts of when it started, who they had been working with etc. and its really interesting to see that both Pixar and Dreamworks have been "insiders" at Disney from the beginning and themselves brown to so much. Disney have had some difficult years, but is now a very successful business again, it seems to be running smoothly.

I can only say, I love all the animations movie, and the ones from Disney have something special, Pixar and Dreamworks have their separate own style today and I love them as well, but there still is something special about a Disney release.

I must say, that their feature films of today are also very magical in a Disney kind of way, and that is also great to watch.

So to all your that was in this film and to the workers of today and tomorrow, Disney will always have a special place in many of our hearts, and it's because of all you hard working people, those who kept it together and stuck it out in the rough times and those who are still fighting this day today, to make Disney as vivid, groundbreaking and refreshing as it has always been.
