Previously Disney purchased Pixar.  Disney had relied on Pixar to 
provide creative energy from a safe distance (as a business partner), 
but then it went and bought Pixar in 2006. Pixar did produce at least 
three very good films since then.

What negative impacts has the purchase had on Pixar?  In what way 
would be impacts be different for Lucasfilm?
