Disney Interactive made the Lion King Game back on home cosnoles in the 90's and those were pretty grand as well.

Disney seems to be a trend to hate it or like it. I look beyond the whole Hannah Monatna, Miley Cyrus, High School Musical, Joans Brothers things and look at stuff like Pixar, Aladdin and even stuff like Dave the Barbarian that they aired years ago.

Yes. The Lion King, Ducktales, and Aladdin were all great games.
Aladdin had great platforming, and all of them had top-notch sprites.

You should check out Spectrobes. It's a great and addictive game with a great storyline.

I think that Disney is on the way having great games again. Up The video game, Cars The Video Game and G-Force have all be praised as great Disney movie/games.

WOW this is great. Now that they have this deal going on, probably the hero films will be more family friendly. I wander if Miley Cyrus, Salen Gomez, Demi Lovato and other Disney stars will be in any of the next films they produce? It would be nice to know.

This article really puts things in perspective, below is an excerpt:

Quote:
People are complaining that we will start seeing bloodless comic book films, but have you forgotten so quickly about this summerís bloodless fest X-Men Origins: Wolverine? There was hacking and slashing all throughout the film and not one drop of blood, digital or practical, was spilled; and that wasnít produced by Disney, it was done by Fox and itís a prime example of what happens when the studio gets too involved in the creative process.

Iron Man, however, is a prime example of what Marvel can do when left alone - but the problem is Iron Man was the first film completely funded by Marvel Studios and it took a lot of money to make that happen. Thatís money Marvel didnít recoup until well after the movie was made and released, so any other project they may have wanted to work on was on hold until the funds came back in. Now what if Marvel had access to Disneyís money during the time Iron Man was being made? If Marvel has access to that kind of coin, then we could have more than one or two high quality superhero films released every year.

Itís no surprise that Marvel is very tight-fisted when it comes to their own production quality - but not having the funding to release films; they were forced to make deals with other movie houses. This is why we see Sony with Spider-man, Fox with X-Men, and Paramount with Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. This is also why the only truly awesome film so far was Iron Man, because Paramount was the distributor not the producer. When the studios try to get involved, audiences end up with X-Men 3, The Punisher and Fantastic Four.

Disney already knows this and I would bet they are happy to stand back and see how their investment can flourish with proper funding. They did the same thing with Pixar a few years ago and if anything Pixar movies have gotten better and they are being released more frequently. Think that would have happened if Pixar had tried to fund their projects themselves? Not a chance. Also, nothing Disney does is low budget, they pride themselves in doing things over and above how it should be done to keep up appearances. If a movie is going to suck, then itís going to suck looking good.

Yes. Because it was terrible.

I don't care about blood. As long as it's a good movie.

That's a very good article you posted, Kevin. And I'm starting to see that this decision isn't so bad after all.

Perhaps Disney will make my dreams come true. At least my comic book dreams.

That's a good article. During the early years of Pixar-Disney, Disney's brand really suffered under the management of Cynthia Pressler. She was of the mindset, that if you keep slapping "Disney" on x, y, and z, people will keep buying it despite how markedly inferior it is. The argument for scrapping the entire animation department was "the kids don't like it" when a sane mind would realize that the end product wasn't that good; aside from the near-miss that was Atlantis: The Lost Empire, all the animated pictures Disney put out were remarkably bad.

Enter Pixar. Pixar needed a distributor, and Disney gave that to them. When Disney eventually saw how damn profitable they were, the smart business decision was to keep their hands out of the creative process. Why? At the height of this intersection, the profits from Pixar were roughly half of Disney's operating budget.

Artistry trumps marketing. People won't keep lining up to see a crap film the same way they'll line-up repeatedly for a good film.

Ironman will still be PG-13. Disney is not gonna harm or kiddiefy the Marvel characters.

Just to let you know.

Disney owns Tri-Star and Miramax. Stuff like Kill Bill wasn't G rated or family orenanted.

Even Disney's Pirates of the Carribean wasn't G-rated. Watch the video I linked a few posts back.

I must say that Wolverine was a terrible movie. I think Marvel should remake Wolverine and make it more family friendly now that Marvel is in the hands of Disney and rate the movie PG-13 or PG-14. Heres my opinion on Ironman, i think it was a great movie and it is very exciting, enjoyable, funny and great action scenes, the only problem i had were bad language, but so far i liked Ironman.

and Wolverine wasn't a terrible movie it was so so. But the M rated game was GREAT blood carnage and swearing!


I'm just hoping series like The Punisher don't go bye bye.....


I have always been a Marvel guy I guess now I will have to be a DC guy

And he will have a yellow basket full of kittens and he will stop every so often to let a small, fluttering bird perch on one of his claws.

I find it funny that Indy Wolf thinks it will all be sugar coated. I doubt she does realize that Miramax is owne dby Disney and there wasn't any fluffiness and candies falling in the sky with Kill Bill.

The next Punisher will be played by no other than:



There will be plenty of hugs for everyone! And, when someone has a bad day, The Punisher will set them down and talk about their issues. The problem will be made better within a span of five minutes.
