    Disney has accelerated its "$ is everything" policies.

    Disney did well for a long time by re-releasing some of their classic movies every several years to get their cut from each generation of kids. Home video was dealt with in the same manner. Changes in format (Beta-VHS-DVD-BluRay) added to their cut. Now they are doing live versions of some classic animated films to further milk the cash cow. I'd expect these to be re-done periodically. (My guess.)

    The ads for the live-action "Dumbo" look better than "Aladdin". We will see.

    In their defense, live-action Aladdin sounds like a pretty awesome movie. The Will Smith genie? Maybe. Now the one I really want to see them produce is Mulan. That really has the makings of an epic. As with this one...just as long as they don't fuck it up.

    They are getting destroyed on social media. This movie will flop even if it is somehow good because the word of mouth is eviscerating.

    Eh, its a phase. Even their animated films have had some flops and then a resurgence and then Pixar, and so on. Some of the recent Disney films are better than the recent Pixar films.

    Oscar nominated Short animated film Bau, is a Pixar Spin off. Nicely done.
