  • Blog Post: Did Disney make a mammoth mistake?

    According to legendary screenwriter William Goldman, there is only one constant in Hollywood: "Nobody knows anything." TRANSLATION: No one person in the business can actually accurately predict what's going to happen next. Whether a picture is going to hit and/or turn out to be a flop. Some senior studio...
  • Blog Post: A two hour long commercial?! What a "Beast"-ly thing to do!

    Guess what's on the "Wonderful World of Disney" this Sunday night? "A Tale as old as time, true as it can be ... " That's right. Disney's 1991 Academy Award winner "Beauty and the Beast." The very same film that you (and I) already own in the VHS format, but just recently bought as a DVD, is being shown...
  • Blog Post: Is Disney trying to torpedo "Nemo"?

    What's the hottest piece of gossip that's currently making the rounds in Tinsel Town? The news that Pixar Animation Studio recently held a test screening of "Finding Nemo" AND that the audience had a somewhat tepid response to the film. Okay, so that's not exactly earth-shaking news. After all, work...
  • Blog Post: What's in a name? Plenty! (At least according to Mickey's lawyers)

    Hey, gang. Did you miss me? Sorry about the lack of new stories for the past couple of days. But my computer and I both appear to have caught a virus last week. Which is why I've been crashed out on the couch, surrounded by piles of crumpled Kleenex, instead of churning out nice fresh copy for you folks...
  • Blog Post: Scenes that You DIDN'T Get to See: Like the prologue from "Beauty and the Beast"

    Just like many of you out there, I spent 'way too much time over the past couple of days looking at the newly released Platinum Edition of Disney's "Beauty & the Beast - Special Edition" DVD. All in all, I think that Buena Vista Home Entertainment did a wonderful job with their latest release .....
  • Blog Post: Two Really Good Reasons Why You Ought to be Watching the Disney Channel

    You know, we're still getting a lot of mail here at JimHillMedia.com about that recent programming change at the Disney Channel. Extremely angry e-mails like this one from P**** B. of Townsend, MA. Who writes to say: "I can't believe that Eisner actually had the b&%[email protected] to cancel 'Vault Disney.' Now...
  • Blog Post: Deutschland says "Treasure Planet" ist gut

    Okay. Now the answer that you've all been waiting for: "Is 'Treasure Planet' really any good?" Well, the word out of Germany - where the Walt Disney Company held a series of test screenings for the film back in early September - seems to be mostly positive. Kara K. wrote to say: "My son and I received...
  • Blog Post: Disney goes for the gold with "Treasure Planet"

    The feature length cartoon that Jeffrey Katzenberg continually tried to stop is finally coming to theaters next month. For over 15 years now, director Ron Clements has had a dream. To make an animated version of "Treasure Island." Only - this time around - Robert Louis Stevenson's epic adventure would...
  • Blog Post: $485 Million doesn't count?!

    Perhaps animation veteran Floyd Norman put it best. Floyd (who's beloved by animation insiders for his bitingly funny take on the biz. Don't believe me? Then find yourself a copy of Norman's 1992 book, "Faster! Cheaper! The Flip Side to the Art of Animation." You can thank me later. Anyway ... ) once...
  • Blog Post: Boags, Bears and Mooses (Meeses?)

    Hey, gang. Jim Hill again. It's genuinely nice to see that yesterday's story went over so well with most of you folks. (By the way, Michelle and I actually think that we've come up with a semi-clever name for that proposed "Ask Jim" column. How would you folks feel about calling the thing "Why for?"...
