In the new millennium, Walt Disney seems embroiled in various problems. Disney's live-action movie performance at the box-office has been suffering. It is depending heavily on Pixar Animation for revenues. Meanwhile, Disney's theme park businesses in France and Japan are not doing well. Disney has had to write-off a huge investment in its Internet venture The Weinstein brothers, founders of Miramax, a subsidiary of Disney, leave to start their own studio since Eisner does not renew their contracts. Talks with Pixar Animation to renew their contract have fallen apart while shareholder disenchantment over Eisner's leadership has increased. As 2005 gets underway, Eisner looks more troubled than ever. This part of the case covers events from 1999 to 2005.
