I know that this post won't make a hill o' bean's worth of difference to the higher-ups at Disney, or any other entertainment company, really. But I intend to have my say.
You've made some colossal blunders in the past, Disney, beginning with High School Musical, really. You've ignored the cartoons that made you great in favor of schlock that will make you money, and furthermore over delivering a quality product. Oh, sure, Tangled was alright, but I can't say it was anything we hadn't seen anywhere else. Frozen was overhyped, and these live action versions of the classics are... not enticing to me personally. (My apologies to my readers who do like Tangled and Frozen, they just aren't my thing.) Writing and creativity can make or break a story, and lately, both of these have been lacking. Not to mention the increasingly liberal ideology leaking into your recent releases.
I wanted to see Beauty and the Beast, the only live action remake that enticed me, but your announcement that LeFou is being portrayed as gay took the shine off. Not that I care about LeFou in the least, but it's the principal. That kind of content does not need to be in a family movie! It's tacky, and so many of my Christian peers are upset, because they too, loved BATB the way it was. You may be under the impression that this fiasco is progress, but it's really not. You're going to loose on this, in more ways than one, and it's quite sad.
Do you know what would really bring in my peers? What would win families back you your side? Make an effort to recapture the clever stories and characters that got the Millennials hooked on you in the beginning, without liberal junk. Or, better yet, put your great shows on DVD. You have no clue what a goldmine you're sitting on! Do you remember these two?
These two, who can still make my brother laugh?
Or how about them?
I'm sure you remember Kim Possible.
Aladdin and Hercules, shows based on beloved movies, but with great side characters.
How about this group of preteen smart Alecs?
You had a good thing going Disney! You really did... but now you've lost your mojo. Well, at least I still have my superheroes.
Never mind. At least they can't trash... No, I don't want to jinx it.
