What the hell are Disney up to nowadays? Their animation departments are so over

Their only ongoing relevant TV cartoons are like what? Big City Greens? The Phineas and Ferb revival?

Their upcoming movie lineup is nothing but sequel slop - Toy Story 5, Frozen 3 & More, Zootopia 2, Moana 2

    If you thought the remakes and sequels were bad before, get ready, that was nothing.

      Eh, some of the sequels aren't so bad. I mean, i think that Frozen 2 was a better story than Frozen 1, even if the songs were totally forgettable shit in 2. Toy Story 4 did blow chunks though. But at least these new films have budget, unlike the Straight-To-VHS Sequels of the early 2000's.

        Being better than the bottom of the barrel straight to VHS/DVD sequels isn't saying much to be honest. Toy story had a budget too but they still couldn't come up with a good story. So it's not looking great if you ask me.

          I was referring to Toy Story 4 regarding the budget part

      With anime movies finding success in cinemas, I think Hollywood will finally realize that it was a mistake to completely kill off their 2D animation efforts, as people are starting to not give a shit about the soulless CGI 3Dslop anymore.

        Which anime movies succeeded in theatres and didnt have a 2-day run?

          Generally I've noticed that in Japan, in this decade, there have been many successful recent movies, a lot of them got most of their money in their international runs(not just US). I don't know for how long any of those movies ran in the US.

          Anime is proving 2D animation isn't dead and zoomers really like their anime.

            Anime (in general) dont pander. Their target audience is boys in their early teens, and this has always been a demographic that consumes a lot (comics, games, toys etc). And since they dont reinvent themselves for new generations, they mantain their fans up and through adulthood. (You can argue that manchildren are a detriment to society, but I'm just arguing about brand strength and longevity.

            Most mangaka read manga as children and then decided they wanted to work on it. Compare that to the big two where most of their writers are in it entirely for the politics and game.

            "I created a gay Spider-Man". "Spider-Man is a cuck like me now". "Chinese wakanda, my own idea".

            There are like 5 pictures of Akira Toriyama. Probably the most influental mangaka of all time. I have no idea how he votes, what he jerks off to or who he hates.

              Anime in general use target demographics appropriately. It's so bizarre how Westaslop can't comprehend something as basic as a fricking demographic.

              I remember from interviews how both Rebecca Sugar and Dana whatever(the creator of Owl House) were smug that they were making shows aimed at young boy audiences of 6-12 years but made the shows to appeal to girls mainly intentionally. How does that make sense, these showrunners are fricking moronic. It's the fault of the people in charge of the corporations though. Rebecca Sugar killed Cartoon Network due to the gay wedding she pushed near the end of Steven Universe, the show got its funding cancelled from the international partners from around the world and CN literally never recovered after that time period. Disney TV animation is also struggling in a similar way, since what do you know, that Dana c**t also pushed heavily to have lesbians and non binatarians in her show, which also lead to it being cancelled prematurely and what do you know Disney TV animation has also been fricked ever since.

    They started pandering to demographics who dont have a disposable income or can have children.

    They had great success with all of their properties up until the point where they pivot in order to sell to the demographic outside of their original fan base.

    Some of the Disney princesses and Black Panther are the exceptions. But that is due to the characters having a broader appeal than just one race/sexuality.

    You'd expect successful business men to understand most of this. But in reality, most of them are idiots who listen blindly to shitty analysts.

    Especially covid pushed the market in to a place where people would watch just qnout anything that was available. And isolation enhanced the already rising tribalist cultuture, giving idiots a sense of broader communities than they actually have. Journalism having died and turned into clickbait for ad revenue keeps fanning the flames.

    Main problem is always leadership

      I couldn't get into the first movie, I dropped it like 15 minutes in. So I don't care about it.

      But I did see that it's Disney's most streamed movie on Disney+ so I can see why they wanted to make this.

      I think they were betting on that Primos show, but the controversy was so bad they delayed it indefinitely, I hope it gets cancelled since it looks pozzed as frick.

    Not over enough, because the leadership is still largely in place. Jennifer Lee is still head of animation. The company is still beholden to WIA. They have further to fall, and more money to lose.
    Disney has also signaled their intentions to invest more in anime licensing, and to modify/influence productions to fit "modern audiences." They haven't learned a thing.
