In the old days, Pixar was celebrated for films like Toy Story, Monsters Inc., and Finding Nemo. These films were praised for being truly creative and innovation in film animation. Then, in 2006, Pixar was purchased by
Satan Disney, and during the following decade, their creativity would eventually go down the crapper.
Before you ask, yes, this is about the goddamn new movie Planes. And yes, I’m fully aware that Pixar didn’t make this movie. It’s actually being made by DisneyToon Studios, a division of Disney that makes crappy direct-to-video/DVD sequels to established Disney films in order to rip-off gullible parents.
Yesterday, I saw the ad for Planes, and right off the bat, I can tell that Disney is just being lazy, so lazy that they’ll use one of Pixar’s movies to make money. Planes is literally a spin-off of Cars (which got its own unnecessary sequel two summers ago), and the characters are so obviously constructed the same way, but they’re even more uncreative.
What’s even worse about this is that this was supposed to be a direct-to-DVD, just like most of the film’s made by DisneyToon Studios. Also, they’re so confident that Planes will be a box office hit, that they’re immediately preparing for a sequel, Planes: Fire & Rescue, which is slated to be released next year.
Now that I mention it, they’re probably going to make another movie based on the Cars formula, and call it Boats. And maybe the working title will turn out to be Go F**k Yourselves!, released by DisneyToon Studios.
To be fair, Pixar has been fixated on sequels and prequels lately. In 2010, they released the long-awaited Toy Story 3. In 2011, they released Cars 2, and recently, they released Monsters University, a prequel to Monsters Inc., one of Pixar’s more celebrated movies.
In the days where making money has become more important than making art, Disney has resorted to increasingly lowly tactics to make money of the Western family unit. For Disney at least, imagination is dead. But then again, these are the same people who have been brainwashing generations with false morals, and have warped our perception on life.
