  • [Question] Tinkerbell at Universal Studios?

    I went on the Shrek 4D ride at Universal Studios in Orlando yesterday and the show contains Tinkerbell getting eaten by a frog. Then later on Pinocchios nose grows out of the screen. How are they getting away with using iconic Disney characters without Disney suing them?

        Have you ever seen Shrek? It's all about mocking Katzenberg's former employer (Disney).

        Universal also made a Peter Pan film in 2003.

          NBC (Universal) plans to air a live action recreation of the classic 1960 television performance, with Christopher Walken as Captain Hook, December 4th on NBC.

            TV is weird in that with most shows whoever airs it does not make it. ABC made Scrubs but it aired on NBC for most of its run. NBC Universal made House but it aired on Fox. So on and so forth.

              Not to mention Universal Japan has a full fledged, non parody Peter Pan show and a parade featuring Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Arabian Nights, and Cinderella.

                Thanks for that. I had no idea. I don't read a lot of story books.

                  Obviously.
                  Most Disney Animated films are based on classic fairy tales. Disney does not own the stories or the characters, however, Disney does own their interpretation of what the character looks like and any embellishments and/or characters they may have added to the storyline.

                    The rights to Peter Pan are actually owned by Great Ormond Street children's hospital in London. All the royalties they get are used to help sick children in the UK. I'm happy for Peter Pan to be in multiple parks if the net result is sick children benefit

                      The only moment a company can be sued is if they copy certain images. For example, a company can make a show, or film based on Snow White, but would not be able to use the likeness of Disney's character such as having an actress with the same hair style, color, personality, and attire.

                      A lot of characters and stories are free for the taking for any company to make an adaption, it's when they copy ideas from others is when it becomes a copyright issue.

                      Another example is when Disney made The Great and Powerful Oz. Disney had to create a different shade of green to put on the Wicked Witch to make sure it was different from the original Wizard of Oz film. Also, if they were to have Dorthy and she'd worn ruby slippers, they would need to purchase the rights to do so since the idea to make them ruby was an original idea from MGM (in the original story they were silver).
