I went to a lecture with a Pixar employee and the word I heard over and over and over and... was story. They used Up to illustrate how they made their movies and the main thing was always story. It is indeed the important part for Pixar.

Heh. They had problems with getting both screens working on a Mac and asked for help from the audience. My daughter told the "My dad can help" as my main job was supporting Macs. I stepped up to the task and got it working for them. Simple stuff.

/great lecture

Maybe that, or apathy, or just cheaping out/hedging their bets, but it still looks like that.

That's their standard line, but Pixar doesn't spend hundreds of millions of dollars on movie production just because they feel bad when their animators aren't busy. The art matters a great deal.

/they've put out some weak stories that were salvaged by engaging animation, just as this could be a good story let down by sub-par animation

Beyond animation, Disney has been exploring new horizons in recent years, breaking barriers with films like Black Panther and the Brie Larson-led Captain Marvel.

Since Disney was far from the first to make movies starring black and female superheroes, the barriers they broke must have been the ones that existed within Disney itself. So... congrats on finally deciding not to be so sexist and racist, Disney?

Maybe there's a semantic argument to be had about "breaking barriers," but Black Panther was not just a movie starring a black superhero.

I agree there's much more to Black Panther than just the casting, but I credit that more to the director than to Disney, who lacked the confidence to give the movie the major holiday release it deserved and instead dumped it into the doldrums of February. (Thanks to BP, February isn't considered a total movie wasteland now, but that certainly wasn't the case before it came out.) Another giveaway is that just like the writer of TFA, Disney often lumps Black Panther together with Captain Marvel, as if they were both equally revolutionary and deserving of the same praise. Captain Marvel wouldn't have even happened if DC hadn't had a success with Wonder Woman first, once again proving the falseness of the old Hollywood myth that audiences won't see a female-led action film, and there was nothing all that bold or barrier-shattering about the innocuously safe Captain Marvel. If Marvel and Disney were truly as bold and open-minded as they want to be perceived, the Black Widow movie would have come out before The Avengers just like everyone else's origin movies did, not eight years after, and they wouldn't have expected pats on the back for doing it.

EdgeRunner: If Marvel and Disney were truly as bold and open-minded as they want to be perceived


Yeah, of course. At the end of the day they're not leading, they're just following to make a buck.

But I do give Disney credit for bringing in people who wanted to make Black Panther what it ended up being, and letting them make it that. After all, a BP movie could easily have gone very wrong.

/and it was slated for preferred release dates but lost out in the Marvel shuffle; of course they lacked confidence in it compared to sequels featuring proven characters, it was objectively more of a gamble

I assume the animation is a stylistic choice. Got to see it in a movie to comment good or bad.

That Spider-Man animated film looked like awful animation to me when I saw the trailer, but when I watched the movie I had no problem following it and enjoying it.

I'd give them more credit if they weren't the same company that expected a national parade in their honor for putting two barely-in-focus gay characters kissing in the background of a Star Wars movie. Their attitude is still "Look how enlightened we are! We put some of those people in a movie! Wasn't that great of us?" Their fumbling attempts at diversity and subsequent demands to be thanked for it is the corporate version of bragging about having that one _______ friend, which totally proves how unprejudiced and praiseworthy they are.

Meanwhile, all I can think is that they need to hire this grandpa as a consultant:

I get your point about the February wasteland but Deadpool (and to a lesser extent Kingsmen and other similar movies) landed well in February in years just before Black Panther ... it wasn't unheard-of timing, but Black Panther certainly set the new high bar.

What did they have in common besides heroes and cartoon violence -- they were damn good movies that were fun to watch.

Won't it be fun when we can quit filtering entertainment accomplishments through lenses like race, gender, sexuality, etc and just enjoy good stuff simply on it's merit?

The studio was nervous about Deadpool too, which was why it got dropped in February. And while it broke records as an R-rated superhero comedy, there was still lingering suspicion that it might not have done nearly as well against real competition.

There was plenty of well-deserved grumbling when the release date of BP was announced, and Disney tried to cover by claiming they wanted it to tie in with Black History Month. After the movie came out a lot was forgiven, but it sounded like a very condescending excuse beforehand.

And yeah, it would be great if Hollywood stopped casting types and just focused on getting talent, but social progress moves at a crawl in the studios. It's the 21st century and the legal community has only just recently recognized that casting couches and systemic harassment are bad things.
