In yet another alleged cost-cutting measure, Disney has decided to close it's Orlando animation studios, sending hundreds of talented artists to the street. Their last day of employment will be January 15th. The team in Orlando have been producing animation for Disney films ever since 1991's "Beauty and the Beast" and are notable for creating films like "Mulan" and "Lilo and Stich" completely in-house.
The latest strip from the weekly comic "the Zoo" (www.zoocomic.com) deals with some of the madness going on at "The Happiest Place on Earth."
