(Source: wired.com)          Don’t look for computer-generated Mickey Mouse dolls to show up in future releases from Pixar, the Northern California-based animation studio responsible for Disney’s Toy Story. A deal announced Monday to add three additional features to Pixar’s previous three-picture deal with Disney, will give Pixar a larger stake in the upcoming movies’ profits, but, says CFO Lawrence Levy, Pixar will retain creative control.

The nominees for the 12th Annual 2007 Satellite Awards have been announced by the International Press Academy.

If Gap founder Don Fisher has his way, the historic red-brick barracks in the center of San Francisco’s Presidio will be joined by a two-story, 100,000 square foot museum clad in clear glass and white masonry.

The design unveiled today would house artwork from the collection assembled by Fisher and his wife Doris, with glass walls that show off – even to passersby who never enter the museum – sculptures by such artists as Richard Serra and Alexander Calder.
