THIS PROVES THEIR MAKING ANOTHER TINKERBELL MOVIE!!
They make money, and that's the only reason they do them. I still want to see the waiver they got to do these films. They technically aren't the "cheapquels" they were producing before Lassiter took over Disney's animation studios... but I still wonder why those are considered okay while a CGI or outsourced animated Mickey and Co DTV (disconnected to their preschool show and more along the lines of The Three Musketeers) hasn't been thought of yet.
Maybe a DTV series is cheaper and easier to sell than an animated series that should have been a much better direction. And like I said, these Tinkerbell movies are based off of an Italian comic series. And I have to say (also like I always do) that the Italian Disney comic market is an untapped source for potentially amazing animated projects. From Duck Avenger to Wizards of Mickey. Those are great comics that would be great cartoon series/DTV features.
The one Italian Disney comics I'd so want to get turned into an English animated/movie/whatever special is Mickey's Inferno (their version of the literary masterpiece with Disney characters in place of the residents of the various stations of Heck).
Also, by the thread's title, I thought this would be a rant about their newest CG animated feature Frozen (which is basically the story of The Snow Queen). Which leads me to this...
Why are you giving your fairytale-based movies titles different from the story's actual title that make me not recognize the fairytale being given the movie treatment? Rapunzel? Nope, we gotta change that to 'Tangled'. The Snow Queen? Forget that, let's go with 'Frozen'. What next, The Princess and the Pea rebranded as 'Naptime'?
Maybe thats the point? Maybe they are trying to say "Hey! This isn't just any plain rehash of a fairy tale! This is OUR take on the fairy tale! Its totally different!"
I liked Tink a lot better in Peter Pan when she didn't talk.
New age disney ruined it.
I have yet to see the Tinkerbell stories, and I do kinda enjoy the concept of expanding the Peter Pan universe by exploring the other character in a way that doesn't damage the original (which I think these kinda do, right?)
I am only glad above all that Disney hasn't destroyed Peter Pan himself, or itself, the way that Peter Pan and the Starcatchers attempted to. (Although, frankly, Jake and the Neverland Pirates does not look good to me and risks destroying Captain Hook's existence).
There's also an Italian Scrooge McDuck comic about the Mayan Calendar's end of the world. I only saw pictures of it, and I don't understand Italian.
I don't see them approving either for a DTV movie series. Especially since there's no way to produce that last one before December. Either scenario plays out, it's going to be irrelevant one way or another.
Still, a Disney Ultra-Heroes or Wizards of Mickey line could be quite profitable. They have the appeal of kids 6-10 and, if done right, the older animation fans.
