So how long does the mouse have before he drowns to death from debt?
>>654 If they can't pull out a miracle within ten years I say they're about as bankrupt as studio ghibli.
>>657 > bankrupt as studio ghibli. They're going bankrupt?
>>658 They had a 90% dip in profits according to their last shareholders meeting with billions lost. Mostly due in part due to bad decisions regarding a certain franchise, park drama over Marvel and Star Wars, but Corona was the straw that broke the camel's back. The parks, hotels and cruises make up more than 50% of their profits, so without them they've received a huge financial blow. Disney won't cease to be, but they'll be filing for bankruptcy until they can sort this shit out or be forced to start downsizing a lot.
>>684 No I meant ghibli, I didnt know they were going bankrupt.
>>689 They kinda closed down when Miyazaki left. I'm not sure if it was a full blown bankruptcy but they did seem pretty fucked judging from what news articles were saying like "its the end of ghibli" or "ghibli closes its doors forever". Miyazaki is making a new movie though.
Not soon enough. I just hope all his properties go to the public domain already, Star Wars fans have unironically made 100 films better than the 5 they already put out.
While I appreciate the optimism with how many properties disney owns I can see them surviving debt by simply selling anything they deem worthless. On the positive side, it'll probably be a few years before they buy another company.
>>706 They won't sell Marvel, that's for sure, but FOX has been of little worth to them and that's been a huge source of their debt right now. I mean they've already said they're not going to do anything with it outside of X-Men and Fantastic Four, so they might as well sell the rest.
>>707 They'll keep the ips but they'll shut down the majority of the studios and license everything else.
Has there been any sign of Disney doing copyright extension fuckery yet? The expiration is nearing and congress managed to ram through that Classics Act bullshit without anyone noticing.
>>744 They probably wont miss the opportunity even if they go broke.
>>705 >I just hope all his properties go to the public domain already Probably not gonna happen. Disney will spend their last money, take on even more debt, or sell of bunch of other newer IPs at a loss, just get enough lobbying money to secure their Mickey Mouse and other related IPs. It will take years before people will start travel en masse like they used to and have enough disposable income again to visit parks. Until then, socks with Mickey Mouse and other similar merchandise will be Disney's lifeline. It might not even be Disney who gets the new extension passed. By 2035, Batman, Superman, and the first Looney Tunes will be entering public domain too. It is not likely that the Warner Bros will let any of them go. My bet is that they will band together with Disney and some sort of extension will be passed by the end of 2023. However, it probably won't be as easy as it was back in 1998. Google, EFF, Public Knowledge, and multiple other entities are against copyright extensions so there will be resistance. >>744 I searched for it, but there is nothing known so far. Disney still has 3.5 years to wrap it up.
A bit of late news but disney now owes 70 BILLION DOLLARS worth of dept in total. Originally it was just 50 billion but they kept borrowing money since the corona virus epidemic to keep themselves afloat. Just recently the borrowed 11 billion dollars from the banks. https://invidio.us/watch?v=ACNbHwpyIaA
>>839 How fucking embarrassing.
(43.59 KB 467x413 nicedesune.jpg)

(16.55 KB 500x372 1437392374255.jpg)

>>839 Just how big could their debt potentially get? I figure 120 billion, maybe more. If that's the case I expect to see a lot of cutbacks and them selling off a lot of IPs and companies they own. ESPN could be on the chopping block too.
>>839 They will be bailed out by the fed,It's a too big to fail company 70billion -100billion in debt, it dose not matter as their lobbyists will ensure that the Tax-cattle pays for their losses, meanwhile small hotels,restaurants,stores go under the US government will make sure that too big to fail companies like Disney, big banks,airlines, etc stay afloat even if these companies were loosing money,mismanaging their IP's or were in debt already due to their own fault before cov19 , they will be bailed out at the expense everyone else.It happened in 2008 and will happen again & the taxcattle and their future generations will pay for it.
>>839 >>861 But how much of it will be downsized or sold or flat out taken over by the government, that's what you gotta think about. Even if a company's too big to fail, the moment they become a nuisance more than an asset via lobbysts is the moment the "scandals" appear "organically".
>>867 Most of fox will probably be gone by the end of this year.
>>764 >>705 http://archive.is/frocw Disney probably gave up on the copyright, and will now exploit trademark laws. That's why classic Mickey has been showing up more and more in recent years. However, trademark enforcement is not as draconian as the IPs in most cases. Still, that won't stop Disney from trying to file wrongful, frivolous lawsuits just to scare people off. No normal person has money or time for dealing with a prolonged court proceedings. However, it would be nice to see someone with money and time do that, go to court, win the case, and then get Disney in trouble for malicious prosecution and abuse of the judicial system.

Disneyworld is set to reopen in June.
>>1574 I can only hope that they get a fresh batch of infected chinese tourists to shut it all down again.

>>2964 Enough to fill a park at least.
Universal Studios theme parks have lost over 94% percent of revenue due to coronavirus and top of having numerous layoffs. In a bit of late news there's also the possibility of Disney possibly downsizing as well on top of there being rumors of George Lucas being brought back to direct Star Wars again and possibility of Kathleen Kennedy being removed by having her contract expire to reduce controversy. There's a good chance Disney might get unwoke soon as a result of the financial losses incurred from the Rey trilogy, the coronavirus, and dissatisfied investors. https://invidio.us/watch?v=MaZcrSF-zng https://invidio.us/watch?v=OajtFYNtk78
Big happenings are likely to happen at Disney with tons of employee layoffs and Bob Iger getting kicked out according to various rumors. https://invidio.us/watch?v=sRRKeRx_AgY TLDR; Disney's going to clean house and get unwoke.

In recent news Disney is slowly losing revenue. Disneyland is still closed with no plans to reopen anytime soon. And at this point the only thing they own making decent money is Disney+ and Hulu
>>3521 It's beautiful.
(118.66 KB 1200x800 1595205.0.jpg)

>>3521 Fucking good.
>>3521 Good. Hopefully it will kill the mouse and cause all companies they own to splinter. Disney's monopoly on the market was cancer and their legal meddling hurt creative industries. Hopefully it means that meddling with copyright and royalty laws is over. However, there is a chance that this time Disney might see protecting copyright as the key to survival and throw whatever they have left into extending rights even further.
>>839 >disney now owes 70 BILLION DOLLARS To who?
(48.15 KB 218x170 smug ice bitch.png)

>>3521 Looks like Disney is going to have to let it go.
>>3605 Banks.
>>3605 Disney owes money to Citybank for sure https://archive.vn/FJY26 I doubt that this is the only entity involved. Disney likely borrowed might haved borrowed money from organizations in Europe and Asia too. Most of them being banks. If Disney can't pay up, most of their stuff will be parceled out and sold. It would be hilarious if Murdoch would buy back all the 20th Century fox properties for fraction of the price. Universal would be interested in something too, since the company has been desperate for a successful franchise of some sort and all of their previous efforts to create something failed.
>When Walt Disney Co. announced that it had closed more than 20 foreign TV channels last week, Chief Executive Officer Bob Chapek looked like he was taking the knife to a big chunk of the company’s international audience. >The move would have been unthinkable a few years ago. But Chapek -- less than six months after succeeding longtime CEO Bob Iger -- is using the Covid-19 crisis to transform Disney much faster than expected, all with an eye toward making the company an online juggernaut that reaches far more people worldwide. >Besides scrapping the networks, he shut down a musical version of the animated film “Frozen” that opened with much fanfare on Broadway two years ago, closed a chain of English-language schools in China, and scaled back a $1 billion resort-technology project that has largely been replaced by a simple mobile-phone app. >“He’s going to be looking in every corner where they can save money,” said Dave Heger, an analyst who follows the company at Edward Jones and recommends buying Disney stock. “Considering what Disney is dealing with, he’s the right guy to have at the wheel.” >... >But the biggest strategic shift is unquestionably Disney’s push into online video. Chapek provided a clue to what was coming in June, when the company said it was removing the Disney Channel TV networks from pay-TV systems operated by Virgin Media and Sky in the U.K. and putting the programming on the new Disney+ streaming service instead. >It turns out that was part of a much broader move announced last week -- affecting many of the people who see the company’s programming outside the U.S. >The company shut down more than 20 international channels, took a $4.9 billion charge against earnings and will instead expand its worldwide streaming operation. Chapek introduced a new online service using the Star brand internationally that will feature content from Disney networks like ABC and FX. >He also said he’d make “Mulan,” the live-action remake of the 1998 animated hit, available to purchase for $30 on the Disney+ service at the same time it’s released in theaters. https://archive.ph/IUGGf So, is this a good thing or a bad thing?
>>3865 Good, it means the mouse is now smacked. They're guaranteed to downsize now and bleeding a fuck ton of money.
>>3874 I wonder when's the next set of layoffs.
>>3606 ELSAAAAA

>>5098 >You've lived long enough for the mouse to starve >You've lived long enough for people to see that Disney doesn't care and is just using woke for money >You've lived long enough for Bob Iger to be thrown out of the CEO's chair It ain't perfect, I'm still waiting for them to start selling properties and actual effort into their new movies but I'll take what I can get. Walt is dancing in his grave!

just pirate them
>>5118 will we finally get good copyright laws?
>>5629 Who knows. Disney was not the only one benefiting from extensions, and someone else might step in. Large music labels are getting more and more desperate, so they might throw all their weight behind extending copyrights.

https://yewtu.be/watch?v=g27HK45uTwo Investors are now calling it quits for Disney. The investor day that Disney usually had gotten cancelled after they announced in claiming that it was an error. It looks like Disney's in a bigger shit than expected due to the layoffs, Mulan tanking, and the fact they've lost 90% of their revenue from the parks being closed due to coronavirus. I'm not sure how much more bad it can get but it's gonna take a long ass time for them to recover if they can at all from this.

>>7346 New rides and re-themes are known to temporarily increase park visiters. They're desperate and they need the increase in attendance immediately, while most woke shit like this would do more damage than good (i.e Ghostbusters 2016) I've noticed that most disney fanatics are liberal and most of them likely won't care about retheming splash mountain. Disneyland is also more popular with local california residents so news like this would bring them back in droves when the park reopens either to ride the original before it closes or to go on the re-theme to post about how progressive disney is, without knowing that they've replaced a ride with actual african folklore with a blackwashed european story.

https://archive.vn/Jv6Wy https://archive.vn/bQp4C In Marvel related news, they cancelled bunch of comics. They cancel stuuf every year, but it is far more common to do around issue six or its multiples to have enough TPB material. Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker is cancelled too, and it will be the first move without a full comic adaption.

>>7757 I dont think any company can really afford Disney, maybe Apple but thats pushing it.
>>7768 Probably not, but AT&T has a lot of money too, as does Comcast. Disney's debt and recent losses will probably its the price. Still, I think that Disney will just keep taking loans, possibly license some of their content to Netflix or other streaming services, and maybe start selling some of their properties. If Disney ever goes bankrupt, the company will get chopped up and sold in chunks. That has another benefit of preventing monopolies, so government would not interfere with the process.

Talk about movies no one asked for. It lost to A Deaf Cunt Gets MORE People Killed 2?!
>>13663 >I don't understand who Cruella was actually made for. The psychopaths at tumblr.
>>13659 I'm just waiting on who and/or what they're going to put the blame on.
>>13663 People keep repeating that Cruella is Disney's direct response to Warner's Joker, a movie about a classic villain turned into a sad character with a tragic past, but honestly I don't get the similarities beyond "hurr she's crazy and her mom was killed by dalmatians so we must feel sad for her. Not to mention that Cruella as a classic Disney character doesn't have near the same depth as the Joker has gained through decades of stories and reinventions.
>>13675 > I don't get the similarities beyond "hurr she's crazy and her mom was killed by dalmatians so we must feel sad for her Whoever came up with that was obviously high on coke, heroin, barbs, dart frog jizzism, and every other thing.

>>13845 I know it hurts but it's the truth. They really marketed this film as the villain against an unjust society with a hard girl power message.

https://archive.fo/srBMu Walt Disney Co. is facing a lawsuit from an insurance company that does not want to pay out coverage for certain delays of film and TV productions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Certain lockdown parameters held by Disney weren't mandated by the government and Disney took advantage of this situation possibly to save money and offset their losses.

Shang-Chi wasn't the worst grossing Marvel Movie but it still did pretty bad. Just Behind at 75.5$ Million Black Widow which grossed around 80.3$ Million on the opening weekend. It barely made back its initial budget in a span of 4 days so far. Meaning it's not actually doing as well as it would appear or claimed to be by critics. https://archive.fo/DwA4b Repost from >>>/v/410776 Sorry for the spam I just had to remake the threads cause I kept making errors.
>>17627 So ignoring the financial part of this, just how bad was the movie?
>>17628 I question the quality of a martial arts movie from a studio whose best action scenes were quite average and from a movie that's a decade or so old by now. And honestly having looked at what passes for action scenes in the most recent tv shows(particularly the Falcon's one) and Black Widow I have zero faith.
>>17627 Is it still banned in China?
>>17632 It still is, the director talked smack about the Chinese government years ago and that hasn't rescinded its stance against any movie produced by her.
>>17627 >4 days >already broke even Anon, we all love to laugh at the mouse but that's not a bad result for a shitty 4 rate hero, during a wahn cough shithouse, out in the summer. Ain't gonna be like like BW with only 100m of gain but it's gonna get some cash anyway Marvel causal will eat up anything
>>13926 I've got the pig+tongue scene as a .gif at home. Need to save this longer .webm as all I had was a .gif of the dying mousekateer and a different one with the happy-cat, seen late in the clip here. I also have the name of the movie ... somewhere
>>17640 1: It made back production budget, but not its marketing budget. 2: Things slow down for almost all films after opening week 3: Its budget was spent before massive inflation hit, so the money is made "back" is worth less than the money that was put into it. 4:All the films is supposedly outperformed were old films based on pre-inflation numbers.
>>17640 A movie needs TRIPLE it's budget to be considered a success. Over a 4 day weekend it only managed to make back it's initial budget when accounting for worldwide grossing. If a movie doesn't make it's money back in that time in just one area then it's a failure. This is also an MCU capeshit movie from Disney. The fact it's flopped is a big deal.
>>17643 1 yeah, but we ain't ever gonna have a marketing budget nunber therefor it means nothing assuming about jt. Plus until two weeks ago there wasn't any normalfag hype or anything, they were still too much jerking off over Muh feels, muh shield and muh brother or the trailer for nuspoderman to actually give a fuck. I can recall maybe 1 ad I've seen since they announced this shitfest and I've seen it on a /tv/ dead board 2 true, I'm also non accounting the biggest cow not allowing the movie in cause Winnie the poo didn't like certain opinions. Again I'm not saying it's gonna be top grossing or something, it will float fine tho 3 mmmm yeah, that's true, but since half of its income is international rather then domestic that's still not too badnot all countries dumped helicopter money 4yeah the outperforming literally only works for jewtube critics, they compare it to similar budget movies but don't account that those same movies were done 15-18y ago when Capshit wasn't as big as it is now >>17644 >needs to TRIPLE its budget Again, you are probably right but we don't have hard numbers on marketing unless they say anything about it therefor double production expenses is already good on paper. >This is also an MCU capeshit movie from Disney. The fact it's flopped is a big deal I don't think it is, after endgame normalfags got burnt out from quippy upbeat capeshit, all the series are meh at best and get liked only on brand name, seriously normalfags ain't talking about the previous one when the shiny new comes out...wanda was the best thing ever then along came falcon, which was the second coming, then loki allowed ascension of everyone, then what if is just rain of gold and rivers of milk....but they don't talk about the previous one anymorewhich with the movies at least they kept referencing or at least comparing, phase 4 ain't getting the love that the mouse is hoping and I'm pretty sure pushing 5rate characters is only gonna burn fans even more But I'm diverting here, ching Chong and the 10 bingbong is not gonna flop too much and they already screwed up since the hero4hires are 90%Netflix materialunless Disney buys the rights back and use the same characters, we will never see them on the big screen but being a 4rate hero it doesn't matter that the story ain't followed
