    What do you mean? Like the Aladdin TV show and the direct to video sequels? The only WDAS sequels that are canon and made by the main studio are The Rescuers Down Under, Fantasia 2000 (if you even want to call that a sequel), Ralph Breaks the Internet, and soon Frozen 2. 

    BH6 has tv series so a chance of it having a sequel movie is zero.  We know nothing certain about WDAS but I think next 2 movies will be something called Dragon Empire & musical by Byron Howard & Lin-Manuel Miranda.

    I'm just curious how the deal is gonna impact Fox's slate beyond the obvious tentpoles. Ad Astra (which is obviously getting delayed again), The Woman in the Window, and Ford v. Ferrari are essentially finished movies and West Side Story is also a done deal since that's gonna be shooting soon, but we might be seeing the end of mid-to-lower budget fare from them. It's worth pointing that they had a really bad 2018 that was rescued by two movies (Deadpool 2 and Bohemian Rhapsody) cause they didn't have a single $60M+ grosser otherwise. Adding insult to injury is that their only releases in 2019 so far have been a flop (The Kid Who Would Be King) and a movie that was saved from red ink by overseas (Alita), so they've probably been headed in that direction regardless.

    well, Alan Horn said in his latest interview that they(Disney) literally can't make some of the edgier stuff but Fox will allow them to say yes to some of them. I think all the edgy mid-to-lower stuff will go to Fox, they just need someone at the head of it who will see diamonds in the rough lol.

    They'll give it to Lin Manuel just because. Wish they gave out Oscars for his Hamilton score though.  

    he should have gotten it for the song or soundtrack to Moana. even though the first time I watched I was indifferent to it, the more you watch it the more you like it.  that's quality.

    imagine compromising your integrity to give AWIT a fresh review. The state of critics!

    they mostly gave it because they like the director. It has nothing to do with Disney as shown by Nutcracker which was murdered by critics but audiences liked it more.

    It's quite simply really. Average Disney movies get great critic scores, that's all there is to it. Tune in sometime shortly for extensive data analysis of crappy movies (dr strange) with crazy high critic scores.

    Doctor Strange has Average Rating: 7.3/10 by critics & 7,5 by audience on IMDB. so ..... audience & critics agree I guess which is bad?

    Last night when I went to see Grindelwald with my Dad, we walked out at the same time as a Nutcracker showing was done, and all I heard was confusion and dissatisfaction over that film. :lol: 

    Disney's live action division needs the same creative control that WDAS & Pixar has because it's a mess right now. It always was but still.

    Ralph should’ve sticked to that March 2018 release where competition isn’t this massive.

    Moana releasing in winter is still so strange. It's such a summer movie. Frozen on the other hand hit the right spot. I wonder why

    Shame that Ralph might not hit its potential 5-day Thanksgiving OW record for animation given frontloadeness (I believe Frozen holds that record at 93M), but, for a sequel to the lowest grossing of all of Disney's films since the 3D Renaissance era started with Tangled - 2011's Winnie The Pooh notwithstanding, obviously - it's doing phenomenally well. Not too surprising, since the 1st teaser was hilarious and the movie's merchandising potential with the princesses and the Disney IP's, as obnoxiously self-jerking as it may have been, definitely screamed big opener/performer, assuming decent wom. But still, as someone who adored Wreck-It Ralph and was a bit bummed it didn't do higher numbers, I'm so glad this sequel is doing badass. (Even if the Frozen brand is somewhat overexposed, the sky is the limit for Frozen 2, now.)

    considering Wreck-It Ralph was one of the lowest grossing ones I think it's clear they had an idea for sequel & that's why they did it. But it's overpeformance is really nice to see. I hear one of their next originals is something about Asia & dragons so Mulan but with real dragons(sorry Mushu) - can't wait for it.

    Highly unpopular opinion: Moana was much better than Zootopia and is one of the top 3 WDAS films, together with The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast.

    agree. Moana feels like a classic already like it belongs in that 1990s Renaissance, and the more you watch it the more you like it(first time I watched it I was underwhelmed & thought Zootopia was much stronger, but even after the second time you get it), you don't get tired of it. Zootopia is great & has great themes but you don't get THAT magic feeling.

    When you look at it, Disney has a serious problem with its live-action fairy-tale division. Many of them are either downright commercial and critical flops (AWiT, John Carter, Lone Ranger, Tomorrowland, Alice Through The Looking Glass) or turn a profit based on nostalgia, novelty factor or popular name (Maleficent, Alice, BaTB, Cinderella), yet also fail critically. Only The Jungle Book was a true winner, a genuinely good movie that also impressed with its visuals. Even now Disney has (probably) managed to completely screw up a popular story that has never received a good adaptation even though it should've been a no-brainer for WDAS to develop a good and visually beautiful story. Y'all talking about problems with Lucasfilm, but there's a giant division of the company that might implode much more spectacularly than Lucasfilm after Solo (if you can call that an implosion) if Aladdin bombs.

    you are right that Disney has a big problem with it's live-action division but categories are different: first are based on their beloved animation classics that almost always turn a profit, second are "original" so they practically always flop (because Disney can't promote an original material to save their life or the budgets are too high for the amount of interest). So I don't know how you get to conclusion about Alladin when in reality it can flop only if it's awful & Disney's greediness in pushing 3 live-action movies so close to each other next year will take a toll. I actually like most of their flops except for AWiT. The quality of production is usually high but it's clearly the scripts that are the weak point. And yeah it's really strange that Disney decided to adapt a really popular story(around the world & not only in America like Wrinkle lol) to live action instead of animation. Such a waste even though the main girl looks really good but they seemed to change a perfectly fine straight original story for whatever we'll see. They really need a new person in charge of their live-action who can stop them from making more Wrinkles & Nutcrackers at least in the form they seem to be.

    This was the trailer that premiered before Ant-Man two months ago. The one released a few weeks ago was probably made specifically to play before Crazy Rich Asians.

    I like this one much better than previous ones actually(cause they use classic music lol)


    but they really should have tried to do it animated & closer to original. then they can do their live-action remakes.

    I bet behind closed doors the Disney execs are already pretty much writing this thing off...

    considering how good & usually profitable their animation is, ther live action stuff bombs so often(even if most of the time it's ok or good) because they spend too much on these. And because Disney now in some way is too big to fail(thanks to Marvel first of all) they don't react to these failings at all when before heads would roll.

    The brand hasn't been relevant with kids for at least a decade, if not longer. Was really hoping on this movie to bring on a revival. 

    I think this movie is targeting adults more than kids, at least from marketing it seems. and it was made because one producer had an idea & really wanted this to happen so it wasn't a cash grab like Beauty and the Beast remake. I think when another person who is passionate about Pooh & co comes to Disney with a great idea how to modernise him it'll happen (probably better be animated).

    it's interesting that they do those 4 minute cartoons with Mickey still & put them on youtube, I don't know who is watching them more(adults or kids) but they get several million views.
