If you say so.
Do you not see the contradiction in that statement?
It took several years for the ABC culture to creep into the Disney side of the company, but it's there now, and firmly entrenched.
There is no contradiction. Saying the concept of themed entertainment is not dead does not mean Disney or anyone else has never embarked on ill fitting projects. In the case of
Animal kingdom the concept has at least for the first 20 years remained alive and well.
The culture is changing, and not just within Disney. The purchase of ABC was not the catalyst or deciding factor in the change unless you find iger single handedly responsible which he is not. Although it did contribute.
But again.. even if the culture of the company is changing and projects that didn’t belong have been approved in the past why would we as so called fans of the medium support it’s demise?
