Did you ever see Freaky Friday? Either one of them? Or any other “take on someone else’s responsibility” type movies? You know the routine: the person with the big ego, who really has no idea what they’re doing, assumes they can do the other person’s job much better than the original person because.. “How hard can it be, right?” Today, the shoes of this annoying, ignorant, hard-headed person are being worn by my favourite love-to-hate-them company: Disney.
Reuters tells us that Disney revealed that they will tackle, write, direct, animate, produce and release “Toy Story 3” all by themselves. (Article Here) Hehehehehehehe. This’ll be neat. Disney distributed the first 2 Toy Stories, that’s it. Okay, yeah yeah, they have a Producing credit for them as well, but folks, this is essentially the MailMan standing up and saying he can do the CEO’s job. Oh sure, this mailman happens to know how to make movies, but in this modern time, movies that aren’t any good.
I mean sure, I can’t sit here and say “it won’t make money”, because it will: 1) From people who don’t follow this stuff and think it’s being made by the same company 2) From little kids who just want to see their favourite characters again and 3) From people like me who wanna sit and pick the daylights out of it. So, yeah, a few bucks are to be had but, look at things this way: Disney has billions. Disney now has lots of elbow room now that they’ve laid off, fired and sent their hand draw-ers packin. Obviously they have some new, secret, fantastically wonderful new plans for the company right? A whole new leaf right? A new company! a new 3D model direction! infinite possibilities, right? Nope, Toy Story 3. – A story based on someone else’s movies, but it’s a shoo-in for us, so we’ll do it. Cuz we don’t have anything else constructive at the moment.
