According to this article, several rival CG animation studios are cropping up to challenge Pixar's dominance of the field. This is in addition to Dreamworks (Shrek) and Blue Sky (Ice Age), not to mention Der Maus itself. Disney's abandoning its roots aside, I think this is a good thing; healthy competition leads to faster innovation, and ultimately better output.

Even better, who's the creative director at Orphanage Animation Studios? Genndy Tartakovsky, dude. While I still wish for more Samurai Jack, I can't wait to see what this guy does with a feature budget.
