: : : As far as Feature Animation, Content wise--maybe I could agree with you. I wish there were more Iron Giant's out there. Prince of Egypt failed because it held back too much and ended up being a pale Disney clone.
: : Uh, exactly how is that ? Name the last Disney Bible Story. And it was hardly a failure. It made over 200 million world wide so exactly how is that a failure ? That was before the DVD/tapes, who knows what it is now.
: The Lion King was basically a bible story. But that's not the point. I'm talking about the fact that they couldn't shake the katzemburg formula--especially when it comes to the musical.
The Lion King is a thinly veiled re-telling of "HAMLET." Shakespeare's HAMLET. Nothing more, nothing less.
