An open letter to: Roy E. Disney
4444 Lakeside Drive Burbank, CA 91505
Dear Roy E. Disney,
On several occasions, I notified you and your business partner Stan Gold of the serious matter which involves the theft of my lifelong creative work with which the facts and evidence substantiate that Disney had copied, exploited and augmented for the Pirates of the Caribbean movie and derivative works.
As I previously filed in Federal court, in simple terms, the materials and facts substantiate that Disney, at the very least, had incorporated some homages and set decorations from their Pirates of the Caribbean theme park ride attraction into my original supernatural pirate story and structural blueprints. Disney also added the hanging scene from rival studio Universal’s “Swashbuckler” movie. This plagiarizing recipe was then given a multimillion dollar budget and it’s resulting yield was deliberately presented, solicited and sold as Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean movie that is based on Disney’s famous Pirates of the Caribbean theme park ride attraction.
As documented, Disney repeatedly failed to manufacture a favorable screenplay for a movie based on it’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction because the attraction has no story, which displays a group of pirates attacking and pillaging a town, seeking sex, food, drink and treasure, and are doomed to never get out alive. Then evidently, due to several motivating factors including Disney’s need for valuable creative materials with which to rapidly manufacture a successful in-house movie in order to boost it’s financial profitability and present a positive functional studio to it’s shareholders and potential investors, years after failed negotiations with me, and approximately seven years after the publication and commercial distribution of a short, condensed version of my 1994 supernatural pirate movie, Disney has evidently plagiarized and infringed upon my copyright and intellectual property, by illegally copying, exploiting and augmenting my creative materials, including my secretive formula, structural blueprints and trade secrets.
As documented, Disney’s 2003 supernatural pirate movie contains the same unique story as found in my original creative materials. Both feature a key unique story of pirates who don’t want anything to with the treasure/plunder, attempting to return a gold medallion on a gold chain with the mystic property, to a cave by the ocean, in hopes of breaking a curse that affects them. The pirates are not being able to enjoy the pleasures of life, like crying, enjoyment of eating and ending their everlasting thirst. The effects of the curse the pirates endure is revealed by moonlight. Both have a pirate ship named “The Black Pearl”. Furthermore, even though Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction prominently features a pirate ship named the “Wicked Wench” and even though Disney continuously claims that it had succeeded on manufacturing a movie based on it’s famed Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, Disney did not use the name of their famous pirate ship the “Wicked Wench” in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Is it true that Disney is planning to change the ship’s name in the ride attraction to the Black Pearl?
