Disney in particular is gung-ho about using all its IP in every way possible. ABC's development slate this year is full of Disney characters and theme park rides. (Hmm, this may be a good sign for a live-action Star Wars series?)
They also canceled Clone Wars. So it's too early to tell what they might do on TV.
As for uncanny valley, I think Aurora does a good job avoiding it. I can't say it's always 100% successful, but better than a lot of them.
I am not aware of any truly pro-level stuff done with Daz/Poser, although I hear it's popular for porn.
Myself, I think that the whole 'uncanny valley' thing is a load of bullshit, and then some; there were a ton of CGI cartoons produced in the last two decades (1990s and 2000s) that were done in the style of Aurora
and nobody had a problem with them or objected to them (the best being Reboot
, Max Steel
, Action Man
and Iron Man: Armoured Adventures
, IMHO.) People have gotten too used to the Pixar funny people style, and so think that a show has to be like that, but it doesn't; the shows that I've posted examples of have shown that.
