Disney, Dreamworks enter long-term distribution agreement

Just days after Universal issued a statement that all discussions of an alignment with Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks Studios had been finished, Walt Disney Studios has agreed to enter into an exclusive long-term distribution arrangement with DreamWorks. Disney will handle distribution and marketing for approximately six DreamWorks films each year — the first to be released under the Touchstone Pictures banner will hit theaters in 2010. Reliance BIG Entertainment, a partner in DreamWorks, will distribute the new company’s projects in India.

    Does that mean that the Transformer ride will be built in Disney instead of at Universal?

    That faint sound you’re hearing is Jeffrey Katzenberg yelling and cursing over this deal.

    Spielberg is now having ties to Disney. Does that mean they’ll bring back Roger Rabbit?
