Future Disney Movies

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.

    Some possible dates have been filled for these. I’m really happy for Zootopia 2, as it’s a rare sequel that I’ve always wanted. I just hope it doesn’t go straight to Disney+. Frozen 3 was expected, but I could give or take it. Toy Story 5 shouldn’t be made. They keep ending the series on high notes. I personally want Incredibles 3! Also, speaking of Zootopia, there was a rumor a few years ago about it getting a trilogy.

    Are they going to properly pay their writers? And no more live action remakes! I hope.

    I don't mind the live-action remakes. Every generation deserves "their" version of the Disney stories.

    I grew up with the very old ones. In fact, I grew up when Disney was mostly doing live-action originals like The Black Hole. ;-) That may explain why I was never really into their animated classics. But I don't mind that my son can grow up watching these spectacular-looking new adaptations, from Beauty and the Beast to The Little Mermaid. Let's face it, when it comes to these films, you and I aren't their target demographic, @MaxCasino. ;-)

    I know, but it seems a lot of Disney is in a bit of a creative rut right now. Remakes tend to prove it, for a lot of people.

    I can't disagree. Going back to the vault, is one thing. Going back there all the bleeding time, something else entirely. I would be interested in seeing more "Black Hole" type of excursions into unexplored territory. Disney is currently sitting on one of the largest piles of money in filmland (or so I presume). I'd appreciate it if they were willing to invest some of that in original projects, spearheaded by younger talents. There's always a next E.T. behind the corner, but you're not going to find that if you remain stuck in the world of Bambi, The Lion King and Cinderella.

    Disney have lost hundreds of millions of dollars over the last few years.Their movies are bombing and they have lost a ton of subscribers after starting their streaming service.

    Theme park attendance is down and their Star Wars “ Galactic Starcruiser “ hotel was a massive flop.

    They have also overspent on a lot of projects.Bob Iger himself has said they are cutting back on all the spending and making less projects for lesss money.

    Wow, I wasn't aware of that. I stand corrected then, thank you, @AstonLotus.

    The problem with the live action remakes, and live action should be in quotes as the movies tend to be a CGI Extravaganza, is that the first few were decent. I am thinking Jungle Book especially. But with each passing one they have gotten more derivative. The tweaks bother the Disney geeks and those waging war on "woke" values. The animals in animated movies can show their human emotions with facial expressions. The real life animals look downright creepy and have none of the charm of their animated inspiration. Look at Sebastian the crab from Little Mermaid for the case in point.

    Disney and others saw a golden goose with a subscription service that they can call their own. They underestimated how much the beast would need to be fed. Subscribers aren't happy with no new content and this means content needs to be created to feed them. The problem is the quality that Disney was known for is put to the test with rushed production, lacking CGI effects and works that may have benefited from some re-writes.

    It is sad for the days of Walt are long gone. Some cling to the classics and long for the good old days. They fail to see what worked back in the 40's and 50's doesn't work now. Disney used to make one animated feature a year if that, now that would be the death of the studio.

    I am not sure where Disney goes next. Their brand has suffered under the Disney+ days. Name me one Disney produced show that became a viral hit? Only Murders in the Building streams on Disney+ but isn't a Disney show. The Mandalorian is a Star Wars show and by the time we got to Season 3 the magic was gone. Interesting times ahead.

    Who says that Disney looks at physical media is dead? Place your bets on how much it will cost!

    Apparently, unused audio from Robin Williams as The Genie will be used.
