"You read the title of this article correctly. Yes Disney is really getting rid of their animators. In fact they began to get rid of their 2D animators back in 1995 when Toy Story was being develop (watch the Pixar documentary and you will see what I mean). Ever since that moment a decades ago when Disney saw the wonders of 3D animation with Toy Story and how much sales it brought to their company. Disney began to look down at 2D hand drawn animation. This is a slap in the face for Walt Disney. If he sees what people are doing with his company he would stick his shoes up their rear."
