QuikQuote: Analysts have mentioned several outsiders, including Viacom chief operating officer Mel Karmazin and DreamWorks partner and former Disney Studios chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg, as possible successors.
Eisner said it is not clear how discussions will proceed to extend Disney’s computer-animation deal with Pixar Animation Studios, which has spawned such hits as the two “Toy Story’’ films and which runs through 2005. “What happens with Pixar, I’m not sure,” he said, adding that Disney has a new computer-animation deal with Vanguard Films, which is run by John Williams, one of the producers of “Shrek’’ for DreamWorks.
