Jamie Ok well the way i saw the discussion was that Disney was getting slammed for releasing crappy sequels of things and treating even it's own stuff badly. I was more or less agreeing with that, saying that everyones at it anyway, and adding in another reason that wasn't being mentioned - that there aren't many other decent ideas around anyway so it's not just because they want to milk the cash cow. If you want to slam Disney (and i'm not saying you are wrong) you need to look at all the reasons behind something rather than just grabbing one and going with it. Talking about the treatment of MTI Vs Peter Pan 2 we may get into some UK/USA problems here but from what i understand MTI was pretty well promoted here with a lavish party/premiere (BlueFrackle and Michael went to it along with Frank Oz, Brian Henson etc), toy premiums, and plenty of TV exposure. Obviously i am a little blurry on what it was like in the states but i do have a lot of the TV appearances and promos on tape and it seemed like Disney was getting behind it though they did have something else out as well at the time. Obviously Peter Pan 2 got made a fuss off - they released it in a fairly quiet period for kids movies, it's 100% their own so they make more money, and they have places like Mc Donalds in their pocket so plenty of promotion there. While PP2 was promoted well though i don't think the promotion was as effective as MTI and at least over here, Peter Pan 2 was a total washout despite the promotion. I'm just saying that for a film that wasn't totally 'Disney', MTI didn't get a real bad deal from them. I guess we are getting back to how people were saying that Disney doesn't respect or understand Henson but i actually think that things aren't as bad as people think. Yes Disney get upto all sorts but then all companies do - i guess the question is whether any other company would treat Henson any differently than Disney would - i really doubt it right now. Seeing as the Henson sale contracts don't (as far as i'm aware) give up total creative control you might find Disney treating Henson a little better than they do their own productions.
