    I think they're doin' these cross-overs to kick off the Movie Lilo and Stitch 2.

    That or their running out of ideas (which is a shame as I love Lilo and Stitch). there also said to be a crossover with Recess :P. The shows getting near the end of its run anyway due to a rule that say their shows must end after 65-episdoes.

    My favorite Disney movie is Aladdin, but Disney cannot be forgiven for what they did to the Doug series.

    There was Lilo & Stitch crossover with Proud Family, and Jake Long!?!:ohmy:

    Went to see Valiant and I must say its been a long time since I cried after watching a movie. Damn, I'm going to miss my $6.50!!! This was a horrible movie. No character development, predictable plot, tired flatulence humor, and the movie seem to just whiz on by. And the audience reaction...there was more noise at an abandoned library. They didn't even clap at the end.

    I'm seriously thinking about posting my address on this thread so everyone can find me and kick my ass.

    I don't think there's really a point of no return. Should it become fashionable and profitable for them to go back to 2D, they most certainly will.
    They'll make a really big deal out of it too, like it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. --CosmicDebris
    Yeah, I see them now. Holding a festive press conference proudly announcing they're going back to their classic roots and grand tradition of 2D animation.>=(

    Maybe its not the point of no return but there are logistical problems if they try to reopen it after a long period of time. They got to hire a task force, buy new equipment, hire new staff, etc. which can make the initial start up expensive.

    New CEO Robert Iger has said he wanted to regain the crown, they ceded to Dreamwork, in animation. Unfortunately, the word "animation" is a broad term

    To the second season?? Yeah that was pretty lame. But that title song was like crack to me...

    Recess is officially dead, I used to watch it everyday as a pre-teen, but after the movie it slow down until a silent halt. Now it seldomly comes on at all...

    I didn't think it was awful, so much as it was just vanilla. The animation was okay at best, though often sub-par, and the characterizations were pretty shallow. Did they ever even actually name the villains in the actual film? It's pretty sloppy to have to find out that name of character by the end credits, let alone the entire villainous cast, such as it was. Also, it's pretty odd to see a film about World War II Europe and not actually see or hear a single actual reference to the people that conquered it. It's almost like they were afraid to mention that these were Nazis.

    And the reason it just seemed to whiz on by was that it was only about seventy minutes long, possibly eighty. If this is indicative of what Disney thinks can compete with Pixar and Dreamworks, well, let's just say that John Lasseter is going to be dancing on the Mouse's grave.

    Disney just isn't Disney without Walt. Sure, the company did fine for a while after his death, but that was because those who were left behind were those he trusted. Bright imaginative people. I mean, Walt died before Pirates of The Caribbean opened and before construction had even begun on the Haunted Mansion. But look at them now! The two greatest theme park rides ever! Walt knew what he was doing when he picked his staff. Now it's just corproate bigwigs who are only on the lookout for more profit, and they don't give a damn about creativity! Crimeney! Now I'm steamed!

    I'm an avid Disney fan (albeit, old-school Disney, not this new junk), and it makes me horribly sad to see Walt's great vision being destroyed by money-grubbers! I swear, if Walt came back from the dead (and he might. Keep your fingers crossed), I'd be the first to join him and build a giant mecha-suit for him.

    Chicken Little, which is going to be out next summer (I think), is supposed to be 'the answer' to Dreamworks and Pixar. But, Dreamworks ain't doing so hot as a business.

    I don't hold very high hopes for Chicken Little. It seems much too focused on the funny, there dosen't seem to be any 'meat' in the story. >__>

    Eh, I've seen one preview of Chicken Little, so far I don't feel excited.

    Robert Iger has taken over as CEO and he wants to reinvigorate the animation franchise...through CGI movies.

    Best Disney Animated Movie (IMO and in no particular order)
    Lion King-good music, good characters, and a very sad death scene.

    Best Of the rest. Lilo Stitch, Emperor's New Groove- No singing(Yay!!!) and broad comedy.

    Worst Disney Animated Movie(again IMO)
    Hercules-like the gospel music, but they totally butchered his story.
    Hunch Back of Notre Dame-Sure there were some adult themes but they kept doing one musical score after another. It slowed the plot down.

    I saw this one preview with the characters dancing to Dragostea din tei. I.... wasn't sure what to think... if that wasn't a desparate attempt, then I don't know what is. How many people know of that song in the US anyway? And those that haven't heard of it will think....? :rolleyes:

    Hmm, lets see. Here's my list ^o^ :

    Best: Beauty and the Beast- Nice story, wasn't afraid to show blood and knives, the songs were good, and the animation was beautiful. What I'd call a real 'classic'. Though, I think the Lion King is awsome on a different level. =)

    *agrees with your best of the rest*

    Worst: Home on the Range- story was lame, characters weren't very interesting, and oh gawd, an an irritating angsty Rosie O Donnell cow. o__- Art was nice though.
    Pretty much all the sucky sequels.

    I used to love disney... but most of the sequals (latley, the more recent) have begun to upset me. I want new stuff. =( The only Disney sequal I really liked was the Toy Story one, and I'm not up for a third.

    Yeah, I started to list Beauty and the Beast. It was fabulously animated. I usually don't like musicals but I like the Gaston song. Aladdin was a good one too.

    Great minds think alike.:laugh:

    I was well through with Disney by that time.

    Favorite Disney movie...hmm...
    For the longest time my favorite movie was Sleeping Beauty. It had a wonderful score, albiet based off of the ballet, and Melificent is my favorite Disney villain to this day. Now i'd probably say it's a tie between Aladdin and the Little Mermaid. Both had wonderful music, and more great villains. After those i'd probably say both Fantasia films. Fantasia 2000 is HOW A SEQUEL SHOULD BE DONE. It was produced(?) by Roy Disney, and kept to the original intent of Fantasia, in which a new version would be made every few years with some older pieces left in, which is why there were a whole bunch of new ones along with the Sorcerer's Apprentice.

    As for the worst, i really can't say since it's been a while since i saw a great deal of the disney films, and i never bothered to watch any of the newer ones save for Lilo and Stitch. I am not really looking foward to seeing Chicken Little, or the two films they're producing after it, Rapunzel and, get ready to cringe, Toy Story 3. I'll probably still go see them anyway for 'research' reasons.

    And on a side note, what some of you have against CG films? It's not like it's going to replace traditional animation completely. And besides, IT IS NOT THE MEDIUM THAT MAKES OR BREAKS A FILM. IT IS THE STORY.

    Best Movie- Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, Lion King, Little Mermaid, TOy Story (Honorable Mention- Snow White)
    Worst- Sequals Aside, my least favorite would be Hunchback of Notre Dame

    Best Sequals- Beauty and the Beast Christmas, Aladdin 2 and 3(2 would have been better with Robin WIlliams as Genie, but still....) Toy Story 2, Little Mermaid 2, Lion King 2 and 1 1/2(Timon and Pumba rule).
    Worst Sequals- CInderella 2, Peter PAn 2(Octopus...WTF?), hell any other sequal sucked!

    I don't have anything against CG films. I've seen some great ones. Its just that it has replaced traditional animation. Its more cost effective and the audience prefers CG more than traditional. Disney has closed all their animations studios and there are no plans from Dreamworks, that I know of, to release traditional animation either. It the end of an era.

    I prefer the Disney classics. I just love Lady and the Tramp, and Robin Hood, Jungle Book, 101 Dalmations, and yes BAMBI. And I can include Fantasia, right? That is probably the most amazing animated movie ever created. (the Fantasia 2000 or whatever was meh)
    I was never very fond of Pinnochio, Alice in Wonderland, and Sleeping Beauty.

    I thought everything from The Little Mermaid through The Lion King was great. Then they started to go downhill. I never even saw the last few ones they did.

    Well, the thing is CGI provides a very different feel. It changes the language available.

    Classic animation has distinct limits. Do a 360 degree pan, it's free in CGI and potentially quite costly in traditional.
