Shares of The Walt Disney Company (DIS) have lagged this year, partly on concerns about the company's growth strategy. Well, The Mouse House has responded by expanding into another kind of rodent: Rats! Tomorrow, it will release ”Ratatouille”. Can this film -- focused around French rats -- justify to investors the $7 billion merger with Pixar and jumpstart the stock?
CNBC Media Reporter Julia Boorstin joins the guys for this conversation.
Boorstin says no single movie can justify a $7.5 billion dollar investment, but she feels ”Ratatouille” shows that Pixar is super-creative. Boorstin also thinks it’s exactly what Disney needed.
