Pixar Blames Streaming For Flop
Imagine an animated movie for kids with a storyline about immigration. Would you be excited to take your children to see it? It’s easy to agree we all care about important issues such as this. The question is do issues such as immigration and other adult concerns make for great childhood entertainment? And while it can be made to be entertaining, are there other things that would be much easier to work with, let alone entertain? It’s not to say teaching children through entertainment is wrong. Scores of films have done it over time. Some things are perhaps just a bit of a stretch. That’s the case with Pixar’s Elemental. At least so far. It’s bombed in its open weekend and maybe Pixar’s Chief Creative Officer, Pete Docter says it best, “I don’t think of Pixar as making children’s programming.” He explains: “We like to make films that are simple enough for adults, but sophisticated enough that kids will find them interesting too.” So when Elemental flops, Docter has an answer that ignores his previous statements. “In the long run, there’s been a bit of a mixed blessing because we’ve trained audiences that these films will be available for you on Disney+. And it’s more expensive for a family of four to go to a theater when you know they can wait and it’ll come out on the platform.” This theory doesn’t really bear out when other films from Marvel and WB are still in blockbuster territory. No one is waiting for them to hit Disney+ or Max.
Streaming Strike Hits Marvel Series
After picketing writers hit the Daredevil: Born Again set in NYC multiple times, Marvel and Disney+ announced it will permanently shut down work until the writer’s strike ends.
Two Marvel Originals Removed Saves Disney+ $
Disney+ removed two low-traffic original shows under the Marvel brand. It’s a first for any Marvel content being removed. Marvel’s Hero Project and Marvel’s 616 have been removed from the streaming platform and while you may think why not just leave them up if they own the intellectual property, and there’s no cost to Disney — there is a cost. Consider Disney has to pay residuals similar to each time you listen to a song on iTunes or Spotify. Each time a show is watched, Disney has fees to pay to various entities. Unless the content has legs to produce revenue, a low-traffic show is more of a liability than a profit center.
Secret Invasion Update
Season One of Nick Fury’s Secret Invasion which began in June will to a close in late July. It’s Marvel’s 22nd series for the small screen. It’s part three of Marvel’s phase five set in the present and it comes to an end this month.
We now know the premise is that once key government official Nick Fury moved to space with the Skrulls and learned a faction of the Skrulls became bent on secretly overtaking Earth by way of their shape-shifting ability. The series is designed for the small screen as it depicts Nick Fury resolving the ordeal without any superpowers or superheroes. Or does it?
The Marvel series on Disney+ is once again loosely based on the original story Secret Invasion by Brian Michael Bendis written in Marvel comics running April through December in 2008.
