That would easily be the most intelligent and savvy thing for Pixar to do!
If they are planning to pull this off, it would singlehandedly disprove two current Hollywood marketing beliefs:
(1) that "hand drawn animation is dead in this country", and
(2) that Pixar's films only succeeded because they were computer animated.
Pixar has everything to gain from this, especially with point 2. I'm sure that a part of them may have been growing annoyed with Hollywood talking about how their films supposedly were so huge due to the technology without really giving the writers their due compliments. Of course the rest of us have all been doing that, but that sort of thing coming from Hollywood marketers really motivates studios to prove otherwise you know?
I say, if it's true.... GO PIXAR!
