* HarsherInHindsight: Disney animator Joe Ranft's sad death in a car crash becomes even sadder when you realize that Disney supremo and Nine Old Men member Wolfgang "Woolie" Reithermann died the exact same way 20 years prior (and just for good measure, former Disney studio chief and Renaissance alumni Jeffrey Katzenberg nearly died the same way as Ranft and Reithermann 10 years after Ranft's death and 30 years after Reithermann's, but he only broke his arm.).

If anything, Hasbro seemed to be interested in [=DreamWorks=]' consumer products unit rather than their intellectual property[[/note]].
