    Steve never said that Pixar wouldn't have
    competition during the holidays.
    What he did say is that
    they don't currently expect competition from
    another
    Big Budget, Animated Movie.

    I agree that he
    shouldn't have made that statement and I've sent him a
    letter to explain my disappointment, yet he did not make
    a totally inappropriate statement. (Pokemon may not
    be a big budget movie. How many years did it take to
    create?)

    Pokemon will take away from Pixar's profits in the same
    way that Austin Powers took away from Star
    Wars.

    During the Thanksgiving holiday there will be plenty of
    competition from several outstanding movies and Pokemon will
    be the least of our concerns. I wouldn't worry too
    much, all of the really great movies will do quite well
    during the Thanksgiving holiday and "Toy Story 2" will
    continue to do extremely well throughout the Christmas
    holiday then into the new millennium.

    A few weeks
    ago I the privileged to see two five minute clips
    from "Toy Story 2".
    They were both great!

    By
    all definitions, "Toy Story 2" is going to be a
    Blockbuster.
    - The computer animation uses the same
    breakthrough technology as "A Bugs Life".
    - The story may
    be Pixar's best to date. It is captivating, funny
    and entertaining.
    - The characters and the actors
    will appeal to moviegoers of all ages.

    Last
    year, Pixar's "A Bug's Life" walked all over the
    competition from other animated movies
    (Prince of Egypt,
    Rugrats, Antz) but lost some ground to Tom Hanks in
    "You've Got Mail".

    This year Tom Hanks will be
    returning in "Toy Story 2".
    It appears that he knows
    how to pick the winners.
