Honestly, Disney been actin a villain lately
Disney taking a property that isn't theirs and profiting from it? No way!
Listen, even if the copyright is expired and it's public domain, it doesn't make you original for working the story into a beautiful fairy tale with a happy ending, it makes you the popularizer of said property
@Sivls, that’s Apple’s entire marketing strategy. That’s why so many people STILL think that Apple invented either the tablet computer or the smart phone (they invented neither).
@I Are Lebo, Back in the eighties, when PC’s were just coming about, Apple made some very important advances in the usability of computers in general, as well as being leaders in aesthetics. They properly set themselves apart there, and for a while, they maintained that lead in a lot of ways. However, you’re totally right. Certain things are now wholly attributed to them, simply because of the fanfare and popularity of it all. At this point, the entire industry is basically a wash, and Apple has almost no need to actually be innovative or ahead of the curve. They just gotta come out with some shît, and Apple users are gonna buy it over Microsoft or Android.
@Sivls, Everyone does realize almost every disney animated original movie is based on a public domain fairytale, folk lore or mother goose like story right?
Snow white, Cinderella, the wooden kid, all previous published in multiple languages. Disney just put it into a media that made it popular and profitable.
Even the Marvel movies are based on what....already written comic characters and stories.
@fettman1138, the lion king is basically just hamlet with animals
@tampon thief, yes it is, so was Sons of Anarchy.
And Kimba the White Lion is based on Hamlet by Shakespeare 🤷♂️
@TheDoctorsTARDIS, I don't understand how more people don't realize this. I've never even seen hamlet acted out or read it but I know enough about it too se it's the same story. None of Hollywood is original and even your original nineties movies were folk tales.
He's called Simba because that's the Swahili word for lion
Shakespeare did it first anyway. Just ask Bo Burnham.
"But I can explain myself.... money."
