Re: Worst Romance in a Disney Movie

Great idea for a thread Farerb! I would say Mariano and Dolores. We see Marianno for the entire movie being crazy about Isabela, but in the end just because Dolores says she's interested in him, he instantly asks her to marry him. That means neither his feelings for Isabella or for Dolores are real....

Re: Dreamworks Animation in Trouble

DreamWorks changed their classy and elegant logo to something very kiddie and tacky. They also changed the silhouette of the boy to look gender-neutral and are now calling it the moon child instead of the moon boy. :roll: DreamWorks Animation Unveils New Curtain Raiser, Introduces Reimagined “Moon C...

Re: Strange World

While it seems like the core of “Strange World” remained surprisingly intact, the movie did go through various versions. They second-guessed the wacky song that starts the movie off (it stayed) and then there was the question of how hard-edged the story should be. (In the finished film a lone crew ...

Re: Strange World

A lot of the parent negative mentions of representation talked about how they were blindsided, how the trailers didn't show this. But that's kind of the point-- within the story. Ethan isn't "othered," it's just who he is. Let's be real, Disney didn't hid that element in its marketing cam...

Re: Strange World

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Disney needs to diversify the stories they tell. For the past decade every story can be basically narrowed down to a protagonist who lives in a world that is in danger from an unknown danger and has to go on a quest to figure out what is wrong and save th...

Re: Strange World

Domestic opening weekend projections have been lowered even further. Disney Animation’s Strange World did $4.2M yesterday. This will translate, per industry estimates, into a 3-day and 5-day of $15.8M and $20M-$23M for Strange World which cost a reported $135M. One former Disney exec once told me, “...

You're probably right given there's no casting notice for David Kawena. It seems they're eliminating the male characters from the film to make it more feminist. :roll:

Spain will have an original song in the end credits. The music video has already been released. It's titled "Una Señal" (a sign) and it has been written and performed by the artist who wrote our last Eurovision song, which finished in third place. The song's just OK. Pleasant, but not ver...

Re: Strange World

Between A- to A+. This is the lowest Cinemascore a WDAS film ever got, even Chicken Little got A-. Wow, that's really low. I didn't expect audiences to hate it this much. Here are the grades for the other films in the canon, for anyone interested. The earliest WDAS film to ever receive one was Beau...

There's a pretty good chance given Strange World's lukewarm reception. Only who gets the fifth nomination remains undetermined. Pinocchio, Turning Red, Wendell & Wild, and Marcel the Shell are in. The only real contenders left are Puss in Boots 2 (depending on how it fares), The Sea Beast, The B...

Re: Strange World

The new box office projection for the domestic opening weekend is $23-$27 million. Strange World, as we thought, it falling below its $30M projection with $23M-$27M. Including previews, today looks like around $4.5M to $5M for that animated movie. Encanto last year had an opening day of $7.6M. Appar...

Re: Strange World

In defense of this movie, audience ratings don’t mean much when we’re talking about a kid’s film with lgbtq representation. They’re bombed with negative reviews. That's why I only trust the verified audience ratings on Roten Tomatoes where you know people who reviewed it have actually watched the m...

Maybe it's time for Don Hall to leave Disney. Most of the films he directed or wrote have not been profitable for the company or popular among fans.

If I'm not mistaken, the last time there was no song at the end credits was Dinosaur in 2000. Wow, it's been that long, huh?
