Disney (NYSE:DIS) confirms impending layoffs at Pixar, raising concerns about potential job cuts within the animation studio.

Sources reveal that layoffs are expected to affect approximately 20% of Pixar’s 1,300 employees, with a particular focus on those involved in content creation for Disney+. This streamlining initiative aligns with Disney’s aim to drive profitability in its streaming service by Q4 2024.

Rising Disney Layoffs

This downsizing strategy follows a wave of job reductions at Disney the previous year, where approximately 7,000 employees were laid off. While only 75 of the affected employees were from Pixar, these ongoing layoffs mirror Bob Iger’s ongoing efforts to manage evolving audience dynamics and navigate the challenges posed by suboptimal box office performances alongside the financial strain resulting from Disney+.

DIS stock sees a modest uptick in the wake of the announcement, underscoring investor interest and the company’s ongoing transformation.
