Re: The state and future of animation

And neither was Hoodwinked Too: Hood vs. Evil.
Looks like empty January season didn't work for everybody, especially when they tried to go wide in May.

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Aha! Thanks. (I'm still on pre-vacation lockdown, avoiding the temptation to see Raya and Luca at home, so I'm off the service at present.)

Now, we can only hope for their getting the Danny Kaye Epcot opening special, when the real Epcot premieres its new look next year.

Re: YouTube Goodness

That's funny, usually when animators do hipster narcissistically Millennial childhood-bashing of their own cultural-stereotype demons, it's usually called "Sausage Party". :roll: I'd rather relax with something a little more satisfying, with something that restores our faith in goodness: https://www...

Re: The state and future of animation

At least a bad movie like Happily N'ever After had star power. Happily N'Ever After, like Hoodwinked, was riding the last traces of the still inexorable, omnipotent early 00's coattail power of the first two Shrek movies, where doing any hip fairytale parody in the new technological miracle of CGI ...

Re: The state and future of animation

Also, they had their roots in VERY limited 90's CGI, which is okay for kids' shows, but gets you confined to April or October cannon-fodder if you have a movie with not much plot appeal. And even the show's limited video appeal was largely with red-state parents that wanted to brand their kids on "f...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Fans still nagging Leonard Maltin for the return of Disney Treasures were always asking for the WDW equivalent of Disneyland's 50th-anniversary documentary and vintage-clip set. Even without the label, this would be an opportune time for DMC--who is now in service of remastering films to show on D+-...

Re: What if Richard Rich returned to Disney?

If Richard Rich was such a long-time veteran animator at Disney, then why is his work in general considered mediocre? If he directed The Fox and the Hound , wouldn't he have the potential to do wonders in animation? And TF&tH is an example of a NON-mediocre Rich film?? (I certainly don't recall tha...

Re: Disney brings back the cartoon short

Oh, WHEW--They're going back to their National Treasure "How To Hook Up Your Home Theater" well for pandemic jokes.

I opened the thread just gritting my teeth that they were going to try and double-down on the Disney Channel Ugly-Mickey shorts, for Parks synergy. >_<

They (or at least the NGC half) wants what cable had...Shark Week. But there, the operative word was "WEEK".

Re: Why did Alpha and Omega get a fandom?

About the only "fandom" I've ever seen of it is the Furry fandom that seems to latch on to the 90's Wannabe era for identifiable characters, and...that's a whole different category.

(Personally, thought the wolves in "Sheep & Wolves" were hotter, but...ahem, from what I hear, anyway. :oops: )

Re: Space Jam 2

Just got back from the theatres. Didn't think it was that bad. Not the best movie in the world but the family liked it and enjoyed watching it. Nice to see bugs bunny in theatres again. And especially resembling Bugs, unlike the original Jam, that Joe Dante thing, or even those now-airing made-for-...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Quiz Show is a fantastic film...but it also isn't exactly an accurate take on what happened. It paints some of the TV executives as though they were mob bosses when in reality they had very little if no involvement with the scandal. Don't get me wrong, I love the film. But the "we're going to take ...
