Re: Dr. Doolittle

This is a Universal release (who own the rights through the barely connected Eddie Murphy movies)...nothing to do with Disney. Or Fox. Oh, I see, it's " From the Producer of ALICE IN WONDERLAND and MALEFICENT!" Heh, probably would have noticed that better on the big screen. Good work, Universal, fo...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

But...Betty wasn't IN the She-Hulk com--ohh, I get it: :roll: This is the "Universal still owns He-Hulk outside of the Avengers" legal-loophole series, with Jenny just standing in for Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, and not the sassy full-time-green District Attorney Walters we know. ("Look all you want, NY, G...

Re: Dr. Doolittle

"From the studio that gave you the (overmarketed, CGI-heavy and Burton-centric) Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent!" No, from the studio that still owned rights to the Rex Harrison version, that just happened to be BOUGHT by the studio that gave you Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent... :roll: The s...

Re: Disney’s Jungle Cruise

One adaptation I would love is "It's a Small World". Sounds like it would have been fun, in Walt's day: https://jimhillmedia.com/editor_in_chief1/b/jim_hill/archive/2003/09/30/153.aspx (Yes, the article's from 2003.

Re: Disney’s Jungle Cruise

Huh, fifteen years, and at least three or four project re-imaginings, since Country Bears/Pirates/Haunted Mansion, and they finally FINISHED it.

Looks like Tom Hanks & Tim Allen outgrew the roles, though.

Re: Disney Pixar's Onward

The whole half of dad aspect just seems a little too wacky... Okay, I must say it: Was anyone else thinking "Extremely Scary" from It: Chapter Two? :shock: I'm realistic and know it won't be a laugh a minute but I can also see there is gonna be a lot of heart. The director in the press interviews t...

Re: Charlie Brown Specials

The second broadcast will be followed by You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown. Well, nice to see it restored-- I've still got the Blu-ray release from '08(? - or was it '12?) when Warner thought they'd cash in on the election year by squeezing out their own "Elected" disc, and Pumpkin was paired with ...

Re: Readers moving away from superhero comics in america?

Well, there's a reason for that TOO-- Comics, like a lot of other uber-fan media (eg. games, horror, cartoons) have fallen into a fan "gentrification" that caters more and more to the isolated tastes of what the core fan thinks it "should" be about, and farther away from what actually sells or hooks...

Re: Moana 2 Is Coming!

This is strictly a rumor at the moment. No one is "officially" announcing this. It's a NZ site...I've learned to "Nothing to see here, move along" with UK, Spanish or New Zealand Internet-rumor sites, especially where Disney/comic-book is concerned. Although, Disney is right now--as in, not until r...

Re: Wowzers Inspector Gadget!

Another live-action take is in the offing. Goodie. :roll: And I bet will be a Disney+ exclusive... Most of them are, at this point. I'm guessing it's 90's nostalgia, and not the free property tie-in back when Disney owned ABC/Capital Cities/DiC and could get Gadget for free. And yes, the original m...

Re: Addams Family CG Movie

Oh yeah, don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film! So many amazing lines: “Children, why do you hate the baby?” “We don’t hate him. We just want to play with him. Especially his head.” But there were some great lines in the original series too. (For those curious, or who don't have the disk boxset, Pl...

Re: Addams Family CG Movie

Until we get to the whole "Wednesday at summer camp" plot, at which point we get another producer who has NO idea what the original show was about. Everybody, from Broadway musicals, to Tim Burton & Bryan Singer, thinks it's about "A free-spirited family, flying their freak-flag at the repressed nor...

Re: Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Live-Action)

I am, and continue to be, immensely proud of that hoax story. The "poster" almost makes it real! Except for those of us who'd already gotten that pin free with the first DVD release, and spotted the "poster" right away. :mrgreen: And, of course, didn't we already get, what, THREE non-Disney live-ac...

"pure bollocks" Aw, now I'll never know what I missed...
