Is Disney still gonna make new hand-drawn animated movies?:

I AM NOT A TREE
Darn.
NO TREE FOR ME (ALSO LOVES HER BOYFRIEND)
[up][up]Yeah that's the article.

Sh**.

I feel like President Truman in that famous newspaper photo of him smiling while holding up a newspaper headline that said his OPPONENT would win, to rub it in his face!

The 2D animated films are probably going to be a "once-in-a-while" thing in Disney from now on.
 
[up][up] Dewey Defeats Truman? Yeah, that's funny. I wish they'd never had said anything if they weren't gonna keep their word.

I... I see no mention of the Discworld movie they were planning a while back. My heart is on the verge of breaking. sad

[up][up]It's dead. PTerry changed his mind at the last moment.
Of course, don't you know anything about ALCHEMY?!- Twin clones of Ivan the Great
Maybe I'm out of the loop, by why so much reliance on Disney to do hand-drawn animation?

[up][up]No, it died because the Discworld rights are sold as a bundle rather then as individual books and Disney wasn't willing to commit to getting the whole shebang.

[up] Because Disney's the one American animation studio still willing to do theatrical hand-drawn stuff. Every other animated movie studio is pretty firmly rooted in CGI and it's unlikely any other studios would fund anything other then the CG medium. It's why Bone is being done as CGI/Mo-Cap instead of 2D like Jeff Smith wanted.

As stated, Disney is the only American studio that will do Hand Drawn films since Dreamworks killed it off.

You want to believe the other studio don't NEED Disney anymore in order to advance animation forward. ....but Disney STILL sets an example as to how the medium used to be and they still come out with entirely solid films! And they WERE the only studio in Hollywood movies MAKING AN EFFORT to bring hand-drawn animation to theaters, and now that their next 2 movies ARE NOT, people were worried it would be 2004 A-GAIN!

Also this.

Oi mate, where is all this shoutin' stemmin' from?

I can't tell if your yelling at someone, making an overly sarcastic comment or stating your opinion.

(Paperman looks fantastic BTW)

Honestly, there still is a market for 2D Animated Movies. The Simpsons Movie grossed a crapload. It's really all about properly marketing your movie and picking a release date where it won't be DOA. Princess And The Frog had the misfortune of being released the same time as those damned Chimpmunks and Avatar. Winnie the Pooh had to compete with Harry freakin Potter.

Really, if Disney's goal was to make hand-drawn animation popular again, the marketing sure went out of their way to not make that happen with these two films. They're both Retrauxes to past Disney eras, prohibiting them to advance the medium further, and were both released at a horrible time to earn money.

Of course, this could get canned as well. Don't hold your breath.

But The Simpsons Movie had the Grandfather Clause on its side, not to mention a loyal fanbase. The studio wasn't exactly taking a risk.

Disney had a pretty big loyally fanbase on their side as well. And movies like Lilo & Stitch proved that if they actually market their movies right, they'd get the grosses they're looking for.

How exactly do you market it right?

[up]Advertise everywhere. Make advertising people want to see (recall Lilo and Stitch and The Muppets both doing parodies as teasers). Time the release not to coincide with steamrollers like Harry Potter.

Just awesome like that
Y'know, here's a comment I saw on that "every two years article" that I thought was cliche until I actually got into it:

I don't think this will be popular at all. I can see parents dragging their kids to this, but with the attention spans of children nowadays they want to see things in 3d so they can check out every angle possible.

I...buh...what the whaaaa? Is that really what people think children do?
Insert witty and clever quip here.

Is that really how people think 3D works?

Guh.

Also, Disney. Please please release a hand-drawn feature at a time of the year where there is no other competition! Really, those films are too rare these days to go up against the big guns!

Disney, you cocky bastards, we're seriously not trying to tempt fate here

I third this notion! Do it so you can take our money! Think of the Children!!

We will PAY to see it if there is no blockbuster out at that time! We are serious about this! I'll see it twice!

Kids aren't as stupid as marketing executives think they are. None of the kids in my family like 3D very much anyway, and my little brother loves The Princess and the Frog. Disney can make money in 2D.
