With Disney 23 Expo coming up, I was a bit surprised. I’m surprised that we really don’t have a full on Disney media thread. I want to talk about some of the future projects coming up from Disney. There’s going to be a number of things too discuss! I’m looking forward to seeing Indy 5 footage (at this point it seems to be a given), and Zootopia TV footage. Let’s see what happens with the House of Mouse in the future!

    So, no disney originals so far?
    Star Wars and Marvel aren't both originally owned by Disney.
    I mean no Fantasy Tales coming so far?

    I'm of the generation that thinks of "Disney movies" as animated (and NOT computer-animated) films. In my view, the last really good one was "Aladdin". Not saying the Pixar films were bad, just not the same and no "Disney movies". And that Marvel stuff doesn't qualify at all.

    Fair enough.

    The Disney brand is so far removed from what it once was. I often wonder what Walt would be thinking of all the brands that have been purchased. They called EON a sausage factory, I think Marvel has taken that to a whole other level.

    The days of Disney focusing on quality seem to be gone, traded in for quick wins, live action remakes of animated classics and movies from Marvel and Star Wars. It's sad in a way how this giant of creativity seems to be anything but currently.

    To be fair, Disney always promotes Marvel and Star Wars as their own brands rather than as a Disney brands. You never see them open a Marvel film with the Disney castle. Nobody is calling Black Widow and Captain Marvel “Disney Princess”. Even Princess Leia could have been lumped in, but they keep her strictly within the confines of Star Wars (as far as I know).

    That said, I definitely think the Disney specific brand itself is being harmed by an overemphasis on sequels and live action remakes. They struck gold with something like FROZEN, and what do they do next? A sequel! You think they would have been encouraged to make more original films, but at this rate it seems like we’ll be getting a live action FROZEN sooner than later. Pity.

    Except in the theme parks all these characters are there along with some themed rides. It confuses the line and blurs it for some. I forgot about sequels. Don't think Walt ever considered doing a sequel to any of his films. It is all about Intellectual Property and the merchandising and other streams of revenue they can earn from it.
