  • the eisner debate.

    i thoght this would make a rousing topic... what do you guys think about eisner and him getting fired? after reading the first chapters of disney war i think he had some good ideas when he was first hired to disney (heck the guy practically saved the company)

    Here's an earlier post of mine, after some twenty years of wisdom gathering of my own, and the so-called "savior" of the company can change, just like anything else:

    I just find it interesting that he makes decisions to lay off and fire scores of people with alarming frequency, but when the the going gets tough and his job is on the line, he fiercely and fearfully protects it, going to great lengths to do it. He obviously doesn't like it when the shoe's on the other foot. If he can dish it out, he should be able to take it! That certainly doesn't seem to be the case here. The forced out ex cast members didn't even have a chance, and most of them didn't see it coming!

      Never forget that Eisner wanted to do away with Feature Animation when he first took the reigns of the Company - - It was only Roy prevailing to keep it under his wing that allowed Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Lion King, etc to eventually happen. The true rennaissance of the Company, in terms of the new animation classics and their ancillary success, would not have happened at all if Eisner had been left to his own devices.

      See his 60 Minutes interview with Diane Sawyer in 1987 (during the making of Oliver & Co) for proof: he says (paraphrased) they only kept Feature Animation going because its a tradition, not because its a good business. He never saw Mermaid coming... it's no different now.
