    Who replaces Chapek?

    Bergman as CEO, and Meryl Poster as Studio Chair with the triumphant return of Dick Cook as right-hand and co-chair. Give someone like Amy Pascal a seat the table as well, along with her producer's shingle. To fill the "Wells" position, a definite outsider, but also have Iger, and even Eisner...

    Black Widow moves to 2021

    That's certainly very good points. After all, when Eisner began making massive mistakes as CEO, he still held the job for years, and even held on for another after being kicked out of the chairman's role. So the wheels move slowly. Meantime, if you'd like to know an alternate history idea I've...

    Black Widow moves to 2021

    Well, Horn is one the way out, finally retiring, though this will definitely spell how his tenure as studio chair was failing upwards, and somehow being Iger's favorite despite his mediocrity and the screwjob he did at New Line with Robert Shaye and Michael Lynne. But do you seriously think...

    Black Widow moves to 2021

    Black Widow moves to 2021

    I foresee a settlement between the parties, terms of which are confidential, by year's end, and Disney is also made to do similarly with other female stars, even the cast of Mulan, and a legally-binding promise to make the vast majority of their films (including all Pixar films and most Fox...

    Black Widow moves to 2021

    One thing I can see this lawsuit doing, regardless of the outcome, is that Disney will certainly be pushing more films to exclusive 45-day theatrical windows, to spare the headaches regarding compensation of stars over day-and-date or Disney+ exclusives.

    2021 Box Office Tracking

    I can't tell if you really agree with me or not. (Sigh) Such is the ambiguity of online text. But I feel that exhibition will rebound simply because the studios can't afford to let it die. And that despite Disney apparently not going to attend CinemaCon in person, they still very much are...

    2021 Box Office Tracking

    There's a lot of people that love the theatrical experience, and the cost of the Premier Access is the roughly the same as one ticket, popcorn and soda. Besides, if movies don't have theaters, there is no viable way to get an ensured return quickly, and likewise, the budgets and effects. If...

    US Cinemas Are Reopening Slowly.

    Is that meant to be serious or sarcasm? I can't tell. In anyways, what is going to happen because of Disney apparently not attending CinemaCon in person?

    https://deadline.com/2021/07/cinemacon-2021-covid-disney-skipping-black-widow-jungle-cruise-1234799381/ What does this mean? The comments in the story are saying "Disney was going to find an excuse to leave, and they're going to forever be done with theatrical windows." What is Disney going to...

    Handwich vs. Bread Cones

    What has made the bread cones so relatively successful, compared to their earlier incarnation as the Handwich? Also, are the bread cones still being brought out every year on a seasonal basis?

    Who Should Narrate New Spaceship Earth?

    I know that COVID made the revamp drop down as not a priority anymore, but how long do you think it will be before they decide to begin implementing it? Would they want to do it for WDW's 50th, or Epcot's 40th?

    Kathleen Kennedy

    "Anyone beating down Ridley and Boyega's door?" Ummmm...YES! She's done Murder on the Orient Express and Chaos Walking, was in the English dub for Studio Ghibli's Only Yesterday, and has plenty of projects in the pipeline. Just because many of them are indie doesn't make them not a big freaking...

    I said BESIDES Jar-Jar. Natalie Portman says she remembers hate leveled at her, but it never happened at the time.

    Kathleen Kennedy

    I was there at the time. I SAW the absolute love radiating out for these films from the fans, the deafening applause of the standing ovation...for Attack of the Clones. How they were exiting the theater absolute ecstatic and pleased. It was always only a vocal minority that bashed these films...

    Kathleen Kennedy

    The prequels were, in truth, warmly received by the public as a whole, warts and all, much like the original trilogy. I distinctly remember the massive lines for the films back in the day and the thunderous applause at the end of each one. And their RT scores were no lower than 70, even The...

    Bob Iger's Retirement

    Well I don't think Chapek will bring Disney to that low, either. If anyone was going to, it would've been Horn. Again, see the New Line example. BTW, just to be slightly off-topic, an alternate history timeline I did has a major thing about Disney being even bigger than it is, with all the...

    Bob Iger's Retirement

    Why does Iger consider Horn the best hire he's ever made? I simply don't get it. Horn is the epitome of failing upwards, more than any such thoughts (wrongly) were made of Michael Ovitz (it wasn't that Ovitz did a bad job at Disney, it's that he had NO job, and Eisner didn't specify anything...

    Bob Iger's Retirement
