If I recall correctly, Finding Nemo is merely the first of three games THQ will do on Disney/Pixar movies, the next being The Incredibles this year. Also, THQ is moving towards the mainstream with Warhammer, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and some other new stuff that clearly isn't aimed at the younger audience.

I think the question here is how well these games will perform, as they will have to be pretty good to sell because the THQ brand isn't all that meaningful at this point. But they did a pretty good job with Red Faction, so there may be some substance.

I talked with CEO Brian Farrell a few weeks ago, and came away impressed. It's obvious from the numbers that the company is doing pretty well, even without something more mainstream like Tony Hawk. It's also notable that they claim #2 market share among independent publishers (though I'm not sure I understand how that was counted, since Activision has more revenues).

THQ may be worth a look for Stock Advisor as a potentially underappreciated company...
