Excerpts from an article at Jim Hill Media, news of a test screening in Germany:
I wonder how intense it is. I hope Disney's using good judgment in this and not just being wimpy since I've always felt that the really good kids movies always had some element of horror in them, especially the old Disney movies
The dragon in "Sleeping Beauty" was pretty intense and it's one of the most beloved Disney classics. The whale in "Pinocchio" was similarly tense. There's nothing wrong with intensity so long as good triumphs over evil in my book. I'm more worried about a movie's message rather than the road it took to get there.
Yeah that dragon scared the crap out of me when I was a kid. So did the Night on Bald Mountain sequence of Fantasia. And the part in Snow White where she stumbles through the dark forest has often been cited as being very intense for kids.
I'm willing to bet it is no worse than Titan AE. It looks very interesting although Finding Nemo holds more interest for me right now.
none of the disney movies i saw as a kid (dumbo, snow white) really got to me...but last year when i was back at home for thanksgiving, some kids came with their parents, we had snow white lying around, thus it was popped in the vcr (my parents have a very tiny video collection, they don't watch movies very much)...i didn't realize how dark some parts of it were until then. i think i'd be more disturbed watching those movies now...
"Adult" animation will not be popular in this country until they stop pandering to the kidees and promote it properly
Not that I was planning on seeing it anyway
The first trailer for Treasure Planet didn't look like it was pandering to children at all. In fact, some of the grand background shots appeal to adults more so than children IMHO. And all things said, Atlantis is still the highest grossing PG animated film of all time.
Really? I thought the highest grosssing PG animated was Shrek. Learn somethign new every day...
Highest grossing American film, Michael. "Spirited Away" doesn't count.
I'd agree, "Shrek" is the highest grossing PG animated film in the US. The problem with Disney doing PG films, is that they get all worked up about not aiming for the kiddie sector. Atlantis was watered down as well, and look what happened to it. I'm still interested in seeing it, but I'd hate to see Disney muck it up again.
i thought atlantis bombed...what was the budget?
