YMMV: Disney

  • Harsher in Hindsight: Disney animator Joe Ranft's sad death in a car crash becomes even sadder when you realize that Disney supremo and Nine Old Men member Wolfgang "Woolie" Reithermann died the exact same way 20 years prior (and just for good measure, former Disney studio chief and Renaissance alumni Jeffrey Katzenberg nearly died the same way as Ranft and Reithermann 10 years after Ranft's death and 30 years after Reithermann's, but he only broke his arm.).
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Disney Studios turned down the idea of doing a live-action Pinocchio in the 80s after hearing a pitch from Steve Barron (who would eventually get his pitch greenlit in the mid-90s by New Line Cinema). Come 2015, Disney's future plans involve remaking just about all of their animated films into live-action ones.
