Gary Krisel to Leave Disney, Maybe for DreamWorks: Walt Disney Co.'s television animation chief said he plans to leave the Burbank firm early next year and that he might consider taking a position with DreamWorks SKG. His contract with Disney expires at the end of this year. DreamWorks--started by director Steven Spielberg, former Disney studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg and music impresario David Geffen--is "very attractive," Krisel said in an interview. "I have made no commitments," he added. Krisel rejected reports that his departure stems from disagreements with Disney Chairman Michael D. Eisner.
