Disney Dish Why For?
  • Blog Post: Why For?

    Earlier this week, EdwrdScssrhnds wrote to say: Jim - Really loved your articles this week about forthcoming projects from Disney Theatrical as well as that new Clive Barker book. Your story about how Disney closes the deal with Clive - by offering him his very own "Abarat Land" at Disneyland - got me...
  • Blog Post: "Tarzan" drives "The Little Mermaid" to the "Hoopz"?! Late breaking sports news? Nah. Just what's next from Disney Theatrical

    No doubt you heard the news last week. All those high profile stories about how Disney Theatrical and Broadway impresario Cameron Mackintosh (the producer of such long running hits as "Cats" and "Les Miserables") - after years of haggling - have finally come to terms. How these two theatrical giants...
  • Blog Post: Did Mickey Miss Out on the Muppets?

    By now, some of you have undoubtedly already heard about this story: Billionaire Haim Saban - the media mogul who made millions off of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers - is reportedly negotiating to buy the Jim Henson Company.

  • Blog Post: What Bugs Me

    You know, there's just no pleasing some people. For the past 18 months, all we've been hearing from some very vocal Disney Company critics is the same tired mantra: "There's just not enough for kids to do at Disney's California Adventure." But now - on the eve of the official opening of "Flik's Fun Fair...
  • Blog Post: My, What Big Ears You Have

    Tired of continually getting hammered by the company's critics, Disney CEO Michael Eisner went on the offensive earlier this month. A PR offensive, that is. With the hope that he might be able to get some positive buzz going about his beleaguered corporation, Uncle Michael has reportedly been speaking...
  • Blog Post: "Finally, a site that won't fire him." (I hope)

    Let me start off by saying that the "JimHillMedia.com" name was *NOT* my idea. If I had my way, gang, this website would have a nice, innocuous sounding name like "The Hub" or "MouseWatch." Something certainly more humble sounding than "JimHillMedia.com." But the folks who actually got this site up out...
