    Bob Sendzik Wow Walt is not here anymore and so today they are marketing an image not his genius.. This movie was his 1st Adventure where Walt RISKED IT ALL. just to make it.. So please dont Touch Snow White just enjoy the Genius of Walt and one of the most loved films of all time.
    Pam Dahl It’s what people focused on consumerism do. They aren’t visionaries, nor are they artists. The trouble is TWDC is no longer led by creative. Creative now serves business. Walt & Roy made a business from art forms. A completely different focus and purpose. Sad to see the demise. Change can be good – but in this case it’s predictable and boring. Ho Hum. No new ideas.

    Michael Scott Snyder They are so out of ideas that it is beyond sad. People complained about Michael Eisner and the era of Jungle Book 2 and Bambi 2 and however many Lion King and Cinderellas that went direct to video. … This is even worse. What else is left after Poppins and Snow White? Are we going to have a live action 90-minute Steamboat Willie next?
