Disney parodying Disney

Speak your mind, or lack thereof. There may occasionally be on-topic discussions.

Just for the people's knowledge.

Ok, this is not the first movie that parodies that kind of stuff, I remenber one miniseries I saw at Halmark channel, but it didnt have any 2-d animation.

That makes two of us. Maybe the fact that I had a toothache throughout had something to do with it, but it was way predictable and most of the gags felt rather disposable to me.
That makes three. Oddly, I liked the third one quite a bit, which I may be doing subconsciously in order to annoy the many fans of the earlier movies who don't like it so much.

I'm actually interested in this movie purely because the soundtrack is Alan Menken, even though the trailer is awful. Disney ads always show the most contrived, banal, or unoriginal parts of their movies, and there are a lot of movies that are overall enjoyable only because of a kickass soundtrack.

Just as an aside, I thought some of you might be interested in reading this: a more thorough summary of exactly what went down in Disney's direct-to-video-sequel department once Lasseter came on board.

As for Morrill, she will, as a Disney insider said, "take on new duties at Walt Disney Studios."
Sounds like the ending of Cats Don't Dance, where Darla Dimple ends up as the studio janitor. Hehehe.

After The Little Mermaid 3 and the four Tinker Bell movies are completed, DisneyToons will shift to making DVD's to support the Playhouse Disney franchise.
Why would there be a need to make The Little Mermaid 3 or four Tinker Bell movies?

Little Mermaid 3 was almost finished. As for the Tinker Bell movies, they are a tie in to the new "Disney Fairies" merchandise franchise. Lasseter can't tank them because, much like the Disney Princesses line, there are literally hundreds of Fairies products being developed and the films are needed to support them all.

So does this mean the deluge of crappy direct-to-video sequels is over? Which would be excellent?

I thought Lion King 3 (or 1 1/2) was actually pretty good. Nice humor, a bit like Emperor's New Groove.

Honestly, it's not the execution that gets me (although, let's face it, in general the execution isn't anywhere NEAR spectacular), it's the very concept. Most of these films are almost completely self-contained and do not NEED sequels, particularly sequels that honestly seem to completely lack the heart and soul of the originals.

Although I'll be honest and admit that yes, I actually kind of LIKED the <i>Aladdin</i> sequels. >_>

It's nice to know that at least Aristocats was saved from a DVD sequel. How many other survivors are there? I was surprised to hear they did a Fox and the Hound 2, so it's safe to say they were scraping the fucking barrel.

Hey, as I recall, Aladdin and the King of Thieves was good. I cracked up many a time watching the Genie's antics in that one.

Indeed, I was shocked how no one seemed to notice that they got Robin back for that one.

By that time, the suckiness of direct to video had already killed any major enthusiasm for such a format.

Aladdin and the King of Thieves was really made as an end for the Aladdin cartoon?

I didn't like The King of Thieves at the time. I did like Return of Jaffar (however it's spelled...) though.

It's funny cause someone else I know already brought up Aladdin once today.

Pinocchio
The Three Caballeros (though there was a comic book sequel in the 1970s)
Alice in Wonderland
Sleeping Beauty
Sword and the Stone
Robin Hood
The Great Mouse Detective
Oliver and Company
Home on the Range

Those are the only fully animated Disney movies I can name that didn't have sequels.

You mean they actually made a sequel to Snow White?!
The Three Caballeros
...which itself was the sequel to Saludos Amigos.

The funny thing is, they could've adapted Through the Looking Glass for Alice and Wonderland, since they had so much leftover crap from the two books not in the Disney movie.

Sorry, I thought he believed it was scrapped.
