They need to Chill Out

Have any of you noticed how fast all of these movie productions are just shooting out these movies like they’ve been waiting to do it for a million years?  No?  Is it just me?  Well, if it is just me then I would like to rant a couple of points and examples to why I think Disney, Dreamworks, Pixar, Marvel, and Illumination are just throwing up movies.  


They went overboard.  I feel that society didn’t mind some of the live actions at first. We went to go see them and they were good, and if not, good they at least made sense and didn’t suck. I mean there were some that were cool because the movie was made in like the early 90s and there were millennials who wanted the movies, but then they went all the way back and decided that they’ll make all of the movies into live action.  If that makes sense.  Like I’m just saying, I just think some of the classics should have just been left alone.  I guess to give you a better understanding, maybe I should give you all an example of a live action that was needed and one that should have been left in the drafts. 

Okay: Mulan & Little Mermaid 


I was iffy about both of these live actions.  Especially Little Mermaid because the franchise had about 4 movies already, so it made me wonder what else they could do?  Also, Disney publicized and hyped up this live action so much that I thought it was going to be sitting in the trash after I watched it.   Though, after I watched it I willingly ate my words because Halle Bailey did her part, and her singing was on point.  Also, the representation was still done well while also keeping the original storyline of The Little Mermaid.  So, this one turned out to be one that we needed.   

On to Mulan, the whole movie was just beautiful to me.   The score made by Christina Aguilera was everything and the only thing that I was upset about was the fact that they didn’t have Mushu.   Like let’s be honest, they could afford to get Eddie Murphy back.  These two Live Actions could leave the drafts. 

Definitely Not Okay: Lion Kin

I was so hyped for this; I got my hopes up.  I mean I saved my good allowance for this movie and everything.  I remember everyone hyping up the cast on Facebook because Beyonce, Donald Glover, and Chance the Rapper were going to be in there with Beyonce on the score.  We thought it was gone be the bomb biggity. 

Turns out we got in there and realized they wasted those 1.663 billion dollars in box office, and we wasted 2 hours of our free time for this movie.  Like, I’m sorry if anyone disagrees but this is how I personally feel.  Everyone on Facebook was saying how Beyonce’s acting wasn’t it, and I mean, I can’t fight them on that.  The movie’s plot was kind of over the place because they somewhat deviated from the original.  The live action was not it and Disney knows that.  So why are they coming out with this new Prequel called Mufasa.   Like Disney just needs to sit down.  


I know we all feel hurt when our favorite movies end, but we should all feel that when something is good it should stop at a good point.  Stop while they’re ahead.  Though it seems that some productions (Disney specifically because they’re going downhill)  act like they can’t stop.   They keep trying to add on more to the good ole movies that we love, why can’t they just make some more classics for the new generation?  I’m personally tired of arguing with my niece because she thinks Frozen was in her time when I literally wanted to buy that Elsa costume for my second grade Halloween before she was even born.  She wasn’t even thought of yet.
It’s all because everywhere we turn, they are updating like iPhone.  Here are some examples.

Frozen 3     

Who gone see it?  Not I.  They should have left it alone. Some of us were really content with Elsa just going where she belonged and Ana finally finding happiness.  But no!  They just won’t let them have peace.

Toy Story 5     

We didn’t even need a Toy Story 4 for real.  The last words of the movie were “To Infinity and Beyond.” That was supposed to be it.  Now they are just going out of proportion.   They already gave Buzz a spinoff.  What can more happen?  They give The Toys to Andy’s kid or something? 

Inside Out 2 

This is left to be decided.  I’m going to go see it, but when I first heard about it I was flabbergasted.  I thought we were done with Riley, but it seems we have to watch her grow up with us. It may be good, it may be bad, but either way it better have something since they wouldn’t let Bing Bong rest in peace.


Also, I know I mostly just covered Disney, but it’s not just them.  There’s also Marvel and Dreamworks.  I mean, has anyone seen Kung Fu Panda 4?  Or let’s not forget all of these Marvel reboots that are not making it in the box office right now.  I heard that The Marvels and Madame Web weren’t looking so well right now.  Another thing I forgot, have you all heard the rumor that there may be a Shrek Five coming out soon?   Now we all should at least agree that isn’t right.

I don’t know, but I’m done for now.

  1. I completely agree. I just went to see Kung Fu Panda 4 with my mom and brother this past Saturday and THEY DIDN’T EVEN HAVE THE FURIOUS FIVE (aka Tigress, Viper, Monkey, Crane, and Mantis). Also I remember when Toy Story 4 came out, it seemed like that was going to be the last one. I googled it(at the time) and google said there weren’t going to be any more. I got that from multiple sources. I hope they don’t make a Cars 4. Now for Frozen, the first one was good and so was the second one, BUT the second one was no where near as good as the first. Also can we talk about the new movies Disney is coming up with? Like what the frick dude? What’s with these plots?

  2. I have hopes for Inside Out 2, as the trailer seemed neat and it deals with a noteworthy topic. Oh my god, though, the Mulan remake makes me so upset for no reason- they straight up just cut to girl power instead of following the original, where Mulan grew stronger with training. Plus the way they changed the plot, eugh.

  3. I haven’t seen many of the new Disney live action movies but I’ve seen some of Mulan and it looked so cool so I plan to watch that, but I agree that toy story should of stop at 3 because it was the perfect ending. The thing with inside out 2 is that I don’t really like the thought of watching Riley as a 13-year-old. We all know how that time was for some of us.
