The reason I bring this up now is – earlier this week – the California
Film Commission revealed that it would be awarding tax credits to 25 upcoming
productions (which will all be shot in California). And among the films &
TV projects to receive a tax credit was “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2” (which –
according to the Los Angeles Times – is now a direct-to-video production).
So when The Walt Disney Company registers a domain name
(especially when it comes to film-related projects), it’s usually a pretty strong
indicator that the Mouse has plans for that particular title. Which is why I
know that all you Pixar fans out there will be delighted to hear that – just yesterday
– Disney registered the following domain name:
Copyright Disney / Pixar. All Rights Reserved
Which is yet another sign that a sequel to Pixar’s 2001
release, "Monsters, Inc." is actually in the works.
Mind you, the Mouse did register a couple of other
interesting domain names yesterday. Among them:
Which -- most likely -- have ties to that series of graphic novels that Jerry Bruckheimer just acquired the feature rights to.
And then there's that somewhat bizarre domain that Disney just grabbed. Which seems to have less to do with the studio's development track than it has to do with someone's urinary tract:
And then back on July 25th, Mickey registered two
domain names that suggest – come the Fall – Disney on Broadway will begin offering
discounted tickets to its New York production of “Mary Poppins” :
Copyright Disney Theatrical, Inc. All Rights Reserved
And if you’re balking at paying top dollar for the new Blu-ray version of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” you might want to keep an
eye on these four domain names:
Which suggest that Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is
readying an extensive rebate program for this new DVD release.
And then you have to wonder – given that “The Lion King” is
the highest grossing hand-drawn animated feature of all time – if Walt Disney
Animation Studios is now toying with producing a pseudo-sort-of a sequel. Given
that – back on July 9th – they actually registered this domain name:
Copyright Disney Enterprises, Inc. All Rights Reserved
There. That should give JHM readers some food for thought as we head into
the last Friday of July 2009. Have a great weekend, okay?

On Wednesday, Disney bought the domain names Monsters2.com, TheTigerKing.com, and... OhSayCanYouPee.com.

Wow ... "The Tiger King" and "BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA TWO" ... will the creativity never stop pouring out of that place ?
Shouldn't it be "The Kung Fu Tiger King" ? (or not to miss out on the best of both it could be the "Kung Fu LIGER King" ? ) "T-Force" . Hey, this is so easy, maybe I could be a creative executive , too.
Maybe the Tiger King name has something to do with the new Pooh film. "Winnie the Pooh and the Tiger King" does have a nice ring to it. After all, Tigger is probably the most popular character in the Pooh universe...so okay I'm reaching here, but it's a better idea than Disney ripping themselves off with a Lion King clone...
