      @trolleriffic I've now done more research. Disney was involved with every Pixar movie since 1995, but then Disney bought them in 2006.

      @Satan's Legion of Evil No they didn't. Disney bought Pixar in 2006 so before that Pixar had independently made Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo and The Incredibles.

    I have a weird feeling that this was all Bob Iger's plan. He knew that terrible movies were going to come out and he basically bailed in the right so that movie and TV shows would come out during Bob Chapek's run. TV shows and especially movies take years to make meaning it was greenlit under Iger's run and with these projects almost done Chapek had no choice but allow them to be released to make some of the money back which made it look like it he was the one responsible for these movies and TV shows being made. Chapek was creating a functioning system for Disney and now that he's gone I think Iger is going to use it and claim that it was his, taking all the credit. Movies like Elemental seems like a movie that was made under Chapek's rain. I expect to see some good content coming out from Disney because of Chapek's system. But once they run out and they will have to make new ideas I wonder if Bob Iger will do this all over again.

      I think you're overestimating corporate competence. It's far more likely that iger got lucky a couple times, made a bunch of stupid decisions, then fucked off before shit hit the fan instead of some grand master plan.

    Remember all those high profile directors who dropped out of directing Disney-owned movies after they've been announced and even filmed? This reminds me of that. Disney is so hellbent on churning out as many products as possible as fast as possible before they even know what they want the products to be. And this mad dash seems to have gone all the way up to the top of the company. They hired Chapek before they even knew if he was the best person for the job.

      The problem is that they are not hive mind who cares about money. There are many people in different positions and some of them cares about politics much more, some cares about there own money and reputation, but not company. Anyway plus is thet there is % of people who really care about making good film. Minus - this % isnt really big if we dont count people thinking that good film is not about plot, stile and characters, but about messege.

    here is what I am gonna say. It is important for everyone's voice to be heard, especially in cinema, and especially voices that have typically been misrepresented in the past. BUT when that becomes more important than telling an actually entertaining story, things will ultimately go downhill. When you work in art, if you prioritize ANYTHING over making art, your quality will drop.

      @TheMarshmelloKing personally I would define misrepresented voices by how whether the films character is meant to uplift or mock the given person. And yes that would largely be POCs because there hasn’t always been the most flattering depictions. However other groups, Christianity, teenagers as a whole, hell even basic concepts such as marriage and friendship are often misrepresented and should be better seen on screen. (And yes I completely agree with the second point. Prioritize actual talent above anything else)

    • TheMarshmelloKing
      TheMarshmelloKing Před měsícem

      Question: what does "misrepresented voices" mean? that's a pretty flexible phrase. What I see, over and over and over again in hollywood- is a tendency to use some variant of this term to prioritize the employment and advocation of certain people based ONLY on on their skin color or gender. That is an especially pernicious practice when it so loudly boasts of being a cause for "equality" and justice.

    All my friends with kids won’t let them watch a Disney movie unless they have watched it first, so they can check for messaging, Disney used to be the safe beat nothing controversial, universal moral values that extended to every culture and religion, to put it simply Disney was the 1 hour break the parent got from answering the “hard questions”, “here watch this, mummy is going to have a drink in the next room”, now a kid watches a Disney movie and you have to send them to a psychologist just to unpack what they just watched

      @William Morahan "what makes the red man red" song from Peter Pan and how one of the crows in Dumbo is named Jim. While many have a problem with some things in Pocahontas, I don't see the derogative way the explorers talked about the natives as as big of a problem as others might, because that's true to the time/story and tied into the larger themes of realizing shared humanity and overcoming prejudice.

      As a young person, Disney movies are repulsive, idiotic, pandering, and vapid. They're cookie cutter, have no substance, worth, or themes. I saw Puss and Boots 2 with my younger brother, and it had some of the most complex humanistic themes and messages of any animated movie I've ever watched. It's very compelling, and it shows where the artistic talent is going in the industry. (Hint: Not on Disney+)

    So, for the past few years, all I have heard is that it was Bob Chapek who un-Disneyed Disney, took away all the things that made Disney vacations special (Magical Express, Magical Express luggage service, ultra-clean hotels and parks, street performers, good movies you could take kids to, etc) and cut services to the bone. Now he is gone and you are telling me he was about to stage a purge on the true villains? Seems a little odd.

      Agree. I want Mickey Mao destroyed so Iger being back will make it sure. Thhat said, Chapek was no Angel. He was already doing crap with the parks and he was following the agenda to a T.
      However, with the giant losses MM was having under HIS watch, he panicked and decided to do what any CEO would do: layoffs, pay the top of company less and ditch the message.
      Then, people more powerful than him booted him before he could do this to improve his own outcome. Whoever booted him, has invested interest in social engineering society using the biggest entertainment company there is. The borard members will F the shareholders for this.
      It is the exact same thing that happened to Nokia, only in that case was to destroy the company from within so Microsoft could buy it for peanuts.

    And note Chapeck was fire under the no fault clause of his contract. So the board had no grounds to terminate him they just did. I think that there is some serious back room shenanigans going on and I think it is connected to either embezzlement or Chapeck stumbled onto a closet of skeletons. Either way I think he started asking the right questions and that meant he had to be gotten rid of.

      Nah, he was fudging budgets around Disney+. They used the no grounds clause to keep this quiet and not have to go public with this knowledge. NDA signed. And Bob Iger's first move was to fire Kareem Daniel, the head executive over the department that includes Disney+. Kareem was probably a part of the shenanigans.

    Anyone who’s been paying attention to Disney these last couple years would know that Iger probably still had some kinda control over Disney while Chapek was installed as a temporary CEO to try to make everyone forget about Iger’s shitstorm. Chapek was the most obvious fall guy to bring Iger back. This basically just confirms it lol

      It’s the same way Ron Miller was driven out of Disney. They blamed him for losing Gen X when Walt had the boomers in the palm of his hand (figuratively speaking). Frankly they should’ve blamed Card Walker for that. Yet Walker remained in the company at an emeritus level until the 90s and was made a Disney legend, while Miller undeservedly became the butt monkey of Disney history until somebody came along and did his job even worse than he did. At least he could save his marriage if not his job.
      Miller saw the potential in *Splash.* Walker unsuccessfully tried to get him to cut it like he had gotten his way on so many post-production hatchet jobs from *The Happiest Millionaire* to *The Watcher in the Woods.*
      There is a book about the shake up of Disney called *Storming the Magic Kingdom* and I highly recommend it but it was written in the 1980s so the shitstorm after that had yet to happen. It ends on a triumphalist note for Michael Eisner, Frank Wells, and Jeffrey Katzenberg, and for Roy E. Disney for bringing them in.

      @Lady Alaina Electronic Arts, a software company. They used to find great ideas and bring them to market, helping companies with finishing their product, resolving quality issues, documentation, etc. (and no small amount of copy protection).
      Now, what they're known for is buying up titles and killing them, rather than coming up with the promised follow on, and firing everyone in the company they bought.
      Some of their worst is re-labeling software as 'new!', when it's last year's code and the current rosters, (like Madden 20xx, and other sports titles), in-game purchases, loot crate mechanics, pay-to-win, and selling half the game as "downloadable content", rather than just including it with the package at the initial release.

    It's ridiculous how bad the lessons/morals being taught in Disney's newer films and TV shows really are.
    A big part of what made the old Disney flicks so good was the morals they taught, at first based on old fairy tales and the timeless lessons and virtues they held (kindness, courage, honesty, bravery, integrity, selflessness etc.).
    But the lessons and morals in the latest parade of trash from Disney seem to have been crafted by Patrick Bateman.

      That doesn’t compensate for his microaggressions against both Black people and homosexuals by replacing *Webster* with *Full House,* nor his pandering to racism by polluting Tuesday night with a *Gimme A Break!* ripoff and a *Cosby Show* ripoff.
      And it certainly doesn’t make up for his favoritism towards the Miller-Boyett bilge machine. The best shows on Friday night were the ones they didn’t produce.
      And if he was so keen on *Twin Peaks,* then why didn’t he do more to stop *Dinosaurs* from getting bounced from time slot to time slot? The only reason I quit watching that show is because I could never find it anymore!

    This is one of those videos where I feel like it gets so, so close to the real issue, and then gets distracted by the land mines intentionally put there to distract everyone. The ‘message’, the wokeness, the ‘loud activists’. Bloody annoying, but ultimately set dressing. Who knows how to misdirect better than an entertainment company?
    Just once I want someone to notice the real truth, the thing Disney is desperately pushing and disguising at every turn - that we should sit back passively and never try. If you’re angry about Luke skywalker drinking tit milk, you don’t notice that the rebellion is saved by established power and the protagonists - hell, even the antagonist! - Are never allowed agency over their own story.
    If you’re distracted by there being no Mushu or songs in Mulan you miss that the entire point of the story is gone because Mulan is a superhero and never needs to try,
    If you’re distracted by Le Fou being gay in Beauty and the Beast you miss that Belle doesn’t resolve her own narrative, the witch, an established power does. And the examples continue.
    In Encanto, the family aren’t happy they have powers and the family almost tears itself apart - the townsfolk they’ve been babying turn out to have been competent and able to help themselves the entire time without being treated like their useless, getting used to the idea they’re useless - and the happy ending is they go back to being useless because the family keeps having power over them, despite the need for that power (a bandit attack decades in the past) being long gone.
    Modern Disney is obsessed with established power and its preservation. Underdogs need not apply, who needs goodness of heart, or bravery, tenacity, cleverness, when someone with money or magic will solve your problem for you in such a nice, neat way? Children need to sit and listen to their elders who are the only ones who can solve their problems for them. Give us your power, children and teens. Give us your money. Isn’t it hard to try? Don’t you want someone else to do it for you? Only superheroes can save you, and you aren’t one.
    Wokeness is a smokescreen, and from the looks of videos like these - it works.

      from the outhouse called "disney". Only when this power strikes the beast in
      the belly, so that negative returns ramp up to literally match the investments -
      only then it's bound to shake even the most rotten, message-brainwashed
      bureaucrats to the very core. This power is the silver bullet we need.

    I would think of it as this: "You are exactly the people I need to fire. Thank you so much for identifying yourselves to me. This company will not succeed if any of the people like you are left inside of it (people who are more focused on displaying your personal opinions on company time instead of building the company). I was worried I was going to have to try to find you people hidden in the machinery of the company, but instead here you are identifying yourselves while actively carrying out fire-able offenses. Sincerely, thank you so much."

      *Frozen II* and *Ralph Breaks the Internet* are more proof of why Walt said “you can’t top pigs with pigs.”
      The *DuckTales* reboot had some seriously soy-ugly artwork. Go back and watch *DuckTales The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp* and imagine what the reboot could have been if it looked like that. I also hated how they made the kids into spoiled brats. And trying to turn the other Disney afternoon shows into an extended universe was a typical cash-grab move to promote reboots that may or may not happen.

      @Whaaaaat? it was Ron Miller’s idea to bring Michael Eisner to Disney after the two Disney Paramount coproductions *Popeye* and *Dragonslayer.* Miller was only willing to let him run the film division, though. Eisner wanted it all. Roy E. Disney, who was waging a separate but parallel coup from the one Saul Steinberg launched in 1984, let him have it all. We saw how that played out. For every Splash Mountain there was a Superstar Limo, and for every EuroDisney a Disney’s California Adventure.

My heart rate spikes, anxiety floods my mind and body, I feel nauseous, my lungs hurt, my throat aches, and I feel dehydrated and exhausted, instantaneously. Yet, when the urges come back, the knowledge of all of these negative consequences gets overridden by the idea of how good it used to feel. Of course, it never does feel good. I wonder now if it ever did, or if it was always a fanciful, illusory ideal conceived by the manipulative powers of chemicals and the receptors they hijack and pillage.
      In my case, stupid always hurts. But stupidity needs to hurt. If it didn’t, there’d be no incentive to put an end to it. Sometimes you just have to get bitten a thousand times before learning that snakes are bad playmates. In both instances (mine and the state of the entertainment industry), I hope that the lesson triumphs over the manipulative powers at play (in my case addictive chemicals, in the above case ideology), before it’s too late.

      He started this mess by bringing Robert Iger into the company with the ABC merger. Disney was firing on all cylinders up until that point.
      Even Pixar has lost its luster since Disney actually bought it out. Now, all they can do anymore is stupid, sanctimonious, manipulative movies about shapeless blobs. All this Boomer daddy issue crap has been dragging cinema down since the end of the 1960s and it has got to fucking stop.

      @Attmay Cancer ecosystems often have specific tastes. Some prefer sugar. Others prefer proteins.
      A cancerous mass is more like a forrest than a tree.
      There is hope though that biopsy results can allow nutritionists to starve cancerour masses while more direct therapies can specifically nuke the cancerous cells via checkpoint inhibitor drugs, targetted radiation and novel genetic treatments.

      Auto Immune Deficiency Syndrome often causes death via cancer.
      As the immune system breaks down, one becomes susceptible to opportunistic viruses, fungi, bacteria and cancerous cells(or pre-cancerous cells).
      Basically all of the stuff your body kills every day when your immune system is healthy.

    It is sad to see such an amazing company come to this sad end. It was the backdrop of many people's lives. The films of childhood, the amazing stories of Robin hood. and snow white, the imagination of us all brought into reality. Now, smashed and wrecked by identity politics and their sneering hordes of fanatics. We warned them! Again and again, and they refused to listen and killed the messengers. Oh well, time to move on and remember the good days. I hope the "message" was worth it.

    Chapek doubled down on streaming first and lost the trust of a lot of top executives. The share price then proceeded to tank. I'm not in favour of Iger's approach of letting the Message get slathered over everything but Chapek certainly wasn't the person to steer Disney back towards making decent original content.

  • Kitty

    When I first saw the news today, For a moment or so I felt glee, elation even. But after a while the glee has left me and my dear friend cynicism has kicked right in. Iger was the one who had chosen Chapek of all the candidates as his replacement. He had had more than enough time to know what kind of a man/leader Chapek is and will make as the CEO. The way that Chapek & his team have been fired so unceremoniously is quite disgraceful. This whole situation has been a mess. I fell dubious how Iger has returned back so fast. Well, on a positive side, at least Chapek has walked away with a fat check. I don't think he'll have too much trouble finding another job. He'll probably be watching gleefully from afar at Disney's unraveling.

    "The message" shouldn't be interpreted in all forms of media and entertainment.

Why don't they do it with their own forms of entertainment aswell

    i feel like you lost a bit of your nuance with this one,,, while I agree on good writing, political neutrality isn't always good in films- I think it fits just fine in things like the mcu. its just they do it badly. they're not saying anything significant, they're not saying anything that hasnt been said, they're staying in a little safe bubble of bullshit writing. That's the problem and always has been. Though, I'm also not going to praise someone who was about to fire a bunch of people because they were protesting. Pretty sure that's illegal. I'm not praising the other guy either. I dunno, you seem to be focusing too much on calling social justice warriors fat instead of actually focusing on whats going on w the industry and its a little tired. Granted, I'll probably be called a SJW for this and I don't really care. I like good movies, and good movies can certainly be political and have representation- its just that these writers don't know how nor fucking care enough to do it well.

    Love ya Drinker, but I'm not buying this.
    I'm not going to dispute that Iger may or may not have put individuals in place that started the "message" trend, but I don't buy Chapek was a hero of traditional values.
    What I do know is when he took over, it got worse, and continued to get worse.
    He hired TONS of upper management, he fired anyone that could oppose him, created new positions for his buddies, and made Kevin Feige, heads of Pixar, and other divisions report to these new positions he put his buddies in.
    Where is the evidence that he was "held hostage" by his employees?
    He literally changed the vision for Disney day one, he literally fired people day one, he literally brought in his own people day one, he literally created positions for his buddies to have jobs day one.
    If he had all this power, I find it hard to believe that he was sitting there in terror and helpless as Disney went down hill.
    I think the committee lead creation approach was implemented by Chapek. Because he hired bankers and put them in charge of creatives. He put the committees over the creatives.
    I don't think Drinker knows WTF he's talking about on this one.

    It never ceases to amaze me that these companies start to panic when they ignore the obvious. You treat your employees wrong, they won’t work as hard and will possibly sue. When your art goes from telling a story to making the underlying message obvious, the people get annoyed and lose interest.

    • Jahn Kaplank
      Jahn Kaplank Před 2 měsíci

      I don't think they treated their employees wrong, though. The employees bought into the woke mania, and dragged the company into it, also, and it alienated the foundation of Disney: people who paid for their products, who rejected the woke hysteria.
      To me, it seems they overestimated brand loyalty from people who traditionally carried Disney for generations, and Disney no doubt thought they didn't have to worry about that segment of their income, by far the biggest segment, by appeasing the woke mafia, but they were wrong, and it is glorious to see them squirm at the retribution of the "boomers" and their wallets. The chain is broken; older people actively don't want to take their grandkids to Disneyland anymore, and with good reason: Disney showed those fat wallet people that Disney doesn't care about their values.

    • The Program
      The Program Před 2 měsíci +8

      I don't think there is any real panic. For most of the employees, Disney is an entry on their resumes. If the money spigot stopped, then they'd just float their resumes somewhere else. That includes the executives. They want to look good with their peers and on social media. They have to go through the motions of pretending to care about the financials, but they already have plenty of money, enough that their biggest fear isn't not making rent, it's being cancelled. The same goes for the board and the investors.
      The "investors" are usually fund managers. They don't own all that much Disney themselves. They are appointed by an investment bank or pension fund to act on behalf of the thousands/millions of ordinary people who actually have skin in the game... but no voice. The fund managers go through the motions, too, but their checks mostly clear regardless of how the company is doing. Everybody has to talk like they care about profits, but mostly that's way down on their list of priorities because they've got very little skin in the game. Bad quarter? OK, throw a senior exec or two into the volcano so we can show shareholders that we care. Hire a new guy, and it's back to business as usual. Even the guy who got forced out gets a golden parachute.
      So they have to ACT panicked, but do they feel any panic? Probably not.
