  1. I like the clone theory the best Ties up all the loose ends without being too unconvincing or forced out of nowhere and isn't a cop out like a vision/dream sequence She asked to see her parents in the mirror scene and all she got was...herself (clone!) The Rey we know was a faulty clone (resistant to the dark side) so she got dumped on Jakku (in line with her vision in TFA) I remember that leaked alleged opening scene of TFA with Luke's hand floating in space from years ago, that could definitely be a source for cloning Maybe that's why Luke's saber calls to her I also saw a "Emperor possessed Snoke all along and is now possessing the Dark Rey clone" theory... I'm fine with that too
  2. I was blown away The spinning saber, that shot with the fleet with lightning in the background, Dark Rey with the dual red saber, etc OMG They're also playing up the finale factor and the nostalgia factor 👌 I'm getting more and more confident about this movie the more I see more of it
  3. When SYFY WIRE asked Dan Lin about making a sequel, possibly a remake of original direct-to-video follow-up Aladdin: The Return of Jafar, he was optimistic. "We’d love to," the producer says. "People clearly loved the movie and watched it multiple times and we get lots of fan letters and people asking us to make Return [of] Jafar, and I can just tell you that we’re in early stages right now, but we’re certainly talking about another movie." "The audience response has really touched us in thinking about where we can go with these stories," he adds, "and we feel like these characters have more adventures in store." https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/aladdin-sequel-early-stages-disney Aladdin producer Dan Lin about the potential of a second Aladdin movie: "If I told you the fans would go crazy. It's just too early for me to reveal. But just know that we're looking at a lot of different source material and it's not going to be based on one singular source, but we're going to take the best of everything that's been done before and create something fresh and new." https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2478016/disneys-possible-aladdin-sequel-will-be-fresh-and-new
  4. Exactly, I don't want Frozen 2 to be seen as a disappointment even if it does well (but not $600M dom or $2B ww) The same thing happened with Age of Ultron Again we gotta stop comparing the Pixar sequels with Frozen 2 FD, I2 and TS4 had that nostalgia factor TS4 can also be seen as the "finale" of a beloved franchise that's 24 years old plus it has the rave reviews from critics (97% on RT) Frozen is merely 6 years old A peak is a peak and Frozen's was just massive It's just hard to see F2 being bigger than that That's what I meant when I mentioned Shrek 3 Those loud noises on the internet seem to pick and choose which popular movies to crap on huh? Never seen any hate towards the Avengers movies or whatever --- Anyway... I guess I had a lot of pent up anger, I gotta stop taking these movies seriously lol That one comment before my post just set me off, my apologies, didn't mean to generalize all of you with "bandwagoners"
  5. People were saying "Frozen fatigue! Overrated Frozen! Olaf short is horrible, franchise fatigue!" Then some cute little trailers come and people are saying "$2B! $600M DOM!!!" Ridiculous People who even hated the first movie are now setting Frozen 2 up for disappointment SMH Just like how y'all were so sure Toy Story 4 was a disappointment and now it has the biggest opening of the franchise, biggest opening for animated films WW, about to pass TS3 domestic and possibly WW
  6. Frozen was Shrek 2, it skipped the cult hit stage of Shrek, it just exploded and peaked with one movie There's not much room to grow, Frozen 2 should be compared to Shrek 3 Shrek 2 also had legs and huge DVD sales for its time, but Shrek 3 didn't outgross it Like Shrek 3, I'm expecting F2 to have the biggest opening...but that's it And I wish people would stop comparing this to I2, that had a 14 year build up of nostalgia and was the only Pixar movie where people actually demanded a sequel Whereas before the trailers came out everyone was crapping on this franchise especially when that long Olaf short film got a lot of hate during Coco's run
  7. The original animators of The Lion King (1994) believe the effects were so realistic that it made the film’s other prominent elements, such as singing and talking animals, feel widely out of place. “It would jar me out of the film, literally,” Stephen said. “Especially with little Simba walking around. It was too real. And then when he would talk, it reminded me of those old nature films where they would dub the voices over and the lips would move. I thought, ‘Oh, this is really cheap.’ I think it was just too soon for this one.” “I just came away going, ‘Wow, that was a great story that I worked on back in ’93.’ How come the apes in ‘Planet of the Apes’ look so much more alive than the animals in ‘Lion King’?” Stephan continued. “This one just said, ‘You know what, let’s cut the expressions out completely. Let’s just keep it real as possible.’ And I think it just diminished the film.” “It’s sort of sad that the stockholder is now in the room deciding what movies get made” Another animator added, “There is a huge resentment against these 3D remakes from the original 2D crews. Maybe if we got any kind of royalties it would be different.” Stephan went on to criticize the voice performances as well, calling them “so wooden". https://www.indiewire.com/2019/08/original-lion-king-animator-slams-disney-2019-remake-1202162518/
  8. The over-predictions in here reminds me of Age of Ultron pre-release It's all hype from the trailers and goodwill of the predecessor Y'all are just setting F2 up to be a disappointment even if it inevitably succeeds
  9. I remember my jaw dropping when I saw that shot in the first trailer, thinking it was animated Now I feel like an idiot But he's very smart if not cunning cause first impressions last and so every shot after that seems just as amazing cause you're already fooled and amazed by that first shot
  10. You're comparing a Disney Princess movie with a talking, happy snowman to... Batman A better comparison would be with Prisoner of Azkaban HP1, HP2, very kid friendly, light, zeitgeist-y, cemented Harry Potter in the public consciousness Then POA came along and it was darker and more mature, still a good movie but dropped at the BO, becoming the lowest grossing of the franchise Dead Man's Chest was still light, more fun than its predecessor (IMO) and very much on brand if not embraced it
  11. A darker, weirder, heavier and more mature sequel from the more light and lightning-in-a-bottle zeitgeist-y predecessor? We've all seen those before and there's a pattern, but there's hype with F2 and the brand is now a huge part of pop culture so I'm not saying it will drop This isn't an Incredibles 2, Finding Dory situation, there's no nostalgia yet, Frozen came out this decade Ralph's branding stayed the same and added Disney Princesses hype Whereas F2 is taking a huge risk, making such a drastic change (especially with that rumored downer ending) As for IX, the teaser alone seems the most GA friendly since TFA, great reception so far Then there's that little thing called the finale factor which Endgame enjoyed very much Obviously SW isn't as big anymore but if this is really the last Skywalker(s) film ever (the only characters people care about in SW anyways) then it could be something
  12. IX DOM: $700M+ IX OS: $700M+ WW: $1.4B+ Frozen II DOM: $450M+ Frozen II OS: $900M+ WW: 1.35B+ My more optimistic prediction for IX will make the gap even bigger Out
  13. To sum it up: people see Frozen as a "little girls' movie" US and Latin American culture highly emphasize masculinity and this is a movie about not one but two Disney Princesses and "love" By far the "girliest" movie in the top 50 highest grossing of all time list Things loved by young girls usually face backlash and people are proud to hate on them: Titanic, Twilight, Justin Bieber, Frozen It is what it is, humans hate femininity Frozen 2's trailers are all action-oriented and darker colors, darker tone, no singing and romance, more masculine If Elsa and Anna were men, Frozen 1 would've done Incredibles 2 numbers DOM
