So with The Curse of the Black Pearl Disney missed thier chance. The made no merch, no toys thinking it would be an adult's movie. What they did do was make sure the adults and teens got t-shirts and movie posters to go out and see this movie. It took years before widespread figures, toys, clothes and all that appeared for the movie.
Well now it appears Disney has gone the opposite way. Dead Man's Chest is (seemingly) being marketed to kids. At work we have little PoTC: 2 action figures. We have big action figures, we have skateboards for crying out loud...
...but go to Hot Topic or any t-shirt store...heck even in WDW and NYC's World of Disney Store...I cannot find a single t-shirt dedicated to PoTC: 2. No place has movie posters. It seems this time the merch is all being marketed to kids.
Am I missing something? Or is this franchise becoming Disney's next kiddie merch pusher and adults are being left out of the loop?
Why can't they seem to get this right?
Or am I just having horrible luck finding things?
