Walt Disney Co. has given broader responsibilities to two key animation executives by naming them each to newly created general manager positions at the company's two major animation divisions.

Andrew Millstein will continue to oversee the daily operations of Walt Disney Animation Studios in addition to now running DisneyToon Studios, which produces direct-to-DVD animated movies.

Jim Morris, who has been managing the production of features and shorts at Pixar Animation Studios, will also assume responsibility for overall operations. Morris most recently was a producer of Pixar's hit "Wall-E."

They each will report to Ed Catmull, president of Walt Disney Animation and Pixar Animation Studios.
