    Correction: Disney used to buy (primarily) literary properties that seemed appropriate for the Disney brand and then gave them the unique Disney spin. The current suits just buy properties, whether they fit in or not, in an effort to please stockholders. A bit of a difference there.

    PotC, yes, that was Disney. As was the Haunted Mansion, and Country Bear Jamboree, the attractions, AND the movies.

    Hang onto your hats, kids. Now that the suits have gotten a taste for acquiring properties rather than creating them, there's no stopping them now. No doubt we'll soon be seeing the Smurfs mingling with the Seven Dwarfs and Pound Puppies cavorting with the 101 Dalmatians. Won't THAT make a pretty picture?
    Well, Pirates of the Carribean, Alice in Wonderland...those are properties. They created them, as well as an entire thing of merchandising too, so...you know.

    I don't know personally at all about this Marvel acquisition. I'm skeptical about it, since I said in another thread Universal is more suited for this than Disney.

    I don't see how this point A even gets close to your proposed point B.

    Welcome to the family!

    Hoping Marvel will continue operating successfully!

    Now the big question is "What kind of changes will happen now?"
