    Exclamation Recent Disney Movies?!!!

    Can someone help me out here? My mind is going completely blank. I just returned from seeing Meet the Robinsons and I was mentally comparing it to recent Disney movies that have come out. The problem is - I couldn't remember any! I loved Cars and Pirates of the Caribbean last summer and I can't remember seeing anything since then. Was the last non-Pixar animated movie that Disney made really Chicken Little?!

    The original poster asked, "Was the last non-Pixar animated movie that Disney made really Chicken Little?!" The last animated film released and made by Disney was Chicken Little.

    Whoa...that is a really long time to go without producing an animated film. Walt Disney Pictures needs to step it up a bit. Wasn't The Wild also kinda recent ? - not that I even saw it!

    Neither "Valiant" (Aug 19, 2005) nor
    "The Wild" (Apr 14, 2006) were Disney movies.

    Disney was just the Primary Distributor.

    I did check imdb, and it did list Disney as
    one of 4 Producers of "The Wild", but, it really
    wasn't a Disney movie ~ It's really sad that
    Disney even got involved with these two
    movies, they both contributed to the string
    of mediocre Animated movies which Disney
    became associated with in it's recent history.

    Disney's association with those two movies
    goes back to Eisner's poor negotiating skills
    which lead to a rift between Disney and
    Pixar, during Eisner's last days. Eisner wanted
    to "sponsor" some non Pixar animated movies,
    in order to have more leverage in negotiating
    a new contract with Pixar. With sponsoring
    movies like The Wild and Valiant, Eisner was
    trying to say "Disney doesn't need Pixar". And
    Eisner was even trying to say the Disney doesn't
    need to be producing animation, all it needs is
    to Distribute.

    Thank goodness Lasseter doesn't feel the same way!

    Well, The Walt Disney Company owns these film studios:
    Walt Disney Pictures
    Touchstone Pictures
    Hollywood Pictures
    Miramax Films
    Buena Vista Home Entertainment

    Pixar


    That's not what you're asking for, but it's good to know.

    NO! Those be dangerous waters. The concept of getting out movies quickly and routinely is why we ended up with mediocrity. Works of creativity take time and should not be rushed. If I remeber correctly, Meet the Robinsons was pushed back about half a year.

    Well, Walt Disney Feature animation used to put out a quality movie at least once a year:

    (Forgive me if some of the dates are wrong, I'm just going off the top of my head...)

    1991 - Beauty and the Beast
    1992 - Aladdin
    1994 - The Lion King
    1995 - Pocahontas
    1996 - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
    1997 - Hercules
    1998 - Mulan
    1999 - Tarzan

    2000....then something happened.....

    Well don't forget Fantasia 2000, which imho was a quality film. Lilo and Stitch was pretty good too. But those are exceptions to the rule. Since 2000, most of the films have not been that good.

    Re: Recent Disney Movies?!!!

    Back in the day, Disney had large teams of people working on a specifice title, so they could put a quality film out every year or two. Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi ect. things really slowed down after Walt's death. Robin Hood, Rescuers, FOx and the Hound. It wasn't until the success of the Little Mermaid that they really focused on riding that creative wave and producing big budget animated films, but after clunkers like Atlantis and Treasure Planet, they scaled back.

    If it wasn't for PIXAR animation may have completely dropped off of Disney's Slate, but even then PIXAR only produces ONE film at a time, with 2 or 3 years between releases, but this has worked very well as it allows them to refine quality film making.

    We don't need boat loads of Chicken Littles, and Meet the Robinsons. I can wait for grand event animated features every 3 or 4 years apart if it means that these films will be treasured classics.

    Think long term guys not instant gratification.
