    Re: Would you want Disney to get Lord of the Rings?

    ORDDU: This is not an idea my sisters and I would like. We prefer Disney movies be showcased within Disney theme parks and that is all.

    ORWEN: Yeah! We don't need Kermit, Miss Piggy or ANYTHING from Marvel!!!! We like Disney for what it is--not what it isn't!

    N.O. NO NO NO. DO NOT WANT. Bad enough we got Avatar. Not a LOTR fan.

    Re: Would you want Disney to get Lord of the Rings?

    Tolkien himself was not much of a Disney fan.

    Gobbling up film franchises to base theme park lands and attractions on is a very Universal Studios approach to things. Disney historically saw the theme park as a form of entertainment in its own right and didn't see the need to rely on its film properties for cross promotion once it got the ball rolling. Sadly, those days seem to be gone.

    As for where it would fit in thematically, why the Animal Kingdom of course because Middle Earth has lots of trees and Lord of the Rings is about conservation. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go beat myself unconscious.
    It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

    Re: Would you want Disney to get Lord of the Rings?

    do i want to see LOTR in a themepark, yes. do i want disney to have it, no. the disney brand just doesn't fit the work, it would be so watered down and pg-ified that it wouldn't ever be the same. if they were willing to do it justice as peter jackson did in the films then by all means but i doubt that would occur. just too scary for the kids.

    It would be smart for Disney to try anyway. Throw a few billion at them. Hobbit will enter the public domain in 2032 anyway.

    No I wouldn't. Whilst films like Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Avatar has a playfulness to them and are quite vibrant and fun, I'd rather not see Lord of the Rings bought. I never enjoyed the films.
