Today in Labor History May 29, 1941: Animators working for Walt Disney begin a five-week strike for recognition of their union, the Screen Cartoonists’ Guild. Disney’s initial response was to fire them. However, the union held fast and ultimately prevailed, winning union recognition. Still, dozens of Disney’s best animators left for good, joining other studios or, as in the case of Hank Ketchum (creator of Dennis the Menace), starting their own studio, United Productions. At the time of the strike, the Disney animators were working on Dumbo. The clowns in the film were a caricature of strikers, when they “hit the big boss for a raise.”

Live-action “#LittleMermaid” is bizarre when you think about it.

#Disney takes public domain fairytales, strips the subtext, makes them kid-friendly, runs them through the sparkle princess car wash, and sells them movies, streams, remakes, spin-offs, merch and theme park tickets.

It was sad to have the #Arrowverse come to a conclusion this past week with the final #TheFlash episode. It's been a fun 11 years or so, especially if you had been a #ComicBook fan from the '80s. I think the whole live-action #Superhero TV / film swell is receding, but it was a very cool experience. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. The big media vendors seem a little misguided at the moment, so I'm not sure what the future holds for the superhero genre.

Jeers to Disney+ for disappearing Willow the series, a charming, quirky, compelling high fantasy follow-up to the campy 1988 movie. A streaming service reducing its offerings may make financial sense, but the selection of this offering among 50+ programs getting the axe makes none considering the series is now barely 6 months old. The decision appears to be punitive. Disney+ did not simply decide there would be no additional seasons. They made Willow nonexistent. #disney #disney+ #willowseries

Hot take:

If we want more #movies to centre women and POC, what we need is more new and imaginative stories, with great direction, scripting and cinematography.

What we don't need is repurposing of tired 70s/80s white male action franchises or #Disney remakes.

There will never be a substitute for imagination and good writing. Shoehorning these issues into badly-made films just cheapens them and makes them an easy target.

The Little Mermaid review: Disney’s most animated ‘live-action’ remake yet - The Verge

#Disney #movies #TheLittleMermaid

Richard Penner

@rrogers @Shadyboots

That would be #Disney's argument.
The US Constitution says [in part]:
• No State shall ... pass any... Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts ....
• ... private property [shall not] be taken for public use, without just compensation.
• No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States
• nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law
• [The Government] shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech
• [The Government] shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of ... the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

So a legislative campaign to overturn Disney's contracts and privileges (including property rights that were granted) as part of a (ludicrously well-documented) retaliatory campaign to punish Disney for gently opining that the #FLGOP demonization of the 10% of Floridians who are gay and/or trans is wrong-headed and bad for business seems unAmerican and unconstitutional. #DeSantis is trying to win the public debate by argumentum ad baculum, which the concept of democracy enshrined in the Constitution cannot allow.

@rrogers I think you mean "as a witness" as the defendants are #DeSantis and other #Florida officials in their official capacities. The lawsuit seeks to undo the voiding of the contracts laying out #Disney's further development plans and to void the replacement of the landowner-elected #RCID by the Governor-appointed #CFTOD.

There is, I believe, a steep divide between Disney front-of-house employees (Cast Members) and executive management, so I can't think of how a Cast Member portraying Mickey Mouse would be in any way helpful in addressing the merits of the claims for relief which are rooted in interpretation of the US Constitution.

The biggest potential sideshow which I think might be legally relevant is deposition testimony of how DeSantis apparently was once married at Disneyworld and has now gone to war with it. Is this the work of another Floridian Very Stable Genius™? Was there ever a plan?

We've got plans to see the Little Mermaid tonight. I'm excited! #Disney

Update in Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S., Inc. v. DeSantis, 4:23-cv-00163, (N.D. Fla.)
Free copy of docket here:

On Thursday, #Disney argued against the motion by #DeSantis, #FLDEO, and #CFTOD that seeks to disqualify Chief Judge Walker from hearing the case over contracts executed by #RCID (Doc 43).

In the main, Disney argues that DeSantis and co. are making a mountain out of a molehill and that the law doesn't endorse such a “hair-trigger disqualification standard.”

Disney points to the cartoonish demonstration of bias in the cases cited by the Defendants and argues there is no parallel:

❝Defendants instead base their motion on two year-old hypothetical questions during prior judicial proceedings where the Court accurately referred to widely-publicized statements from Florida legislators about their intent to change the governing structure of the Reedy Creek Improvement District (“RCID”) specifically because Disney expressed a political viewpoint disfavored by the legislators. The Court did not make any findings about those statements, but simply invoked them during oral arguments as examples to test arguments being advanced by counsel addressing different issues under different factual records.

Also, “the Court recently ruled in favor of the relevant State defendants in the very cases cited by defendants here as evidence of potential bias against them. Far from proving bias, the cases confirm the Court’s impartiality. The motion to disqualify should be denied.”

Disney goes on to show more context for the innocuous use by Judge Walker of news reports about the DeSantis-Disney feud, because contextomy is the tool of the scoundrel.

To me, it seems #DisneyPlus believes that #StarWars and the #MCU are enough, not realizing that both franchises are near (past?) peak interest with casual fans.

There's not enough other, unfamiliar (to many), quality content on the service to keep it a need, rather than pure luxury.

I've already cancelled #Prime, and I'll probably cut at least one more service.

I may keep #Hulu, #Max, #YouTube, and #CriterionChannel, and dump #Disney and #AppleTV. #Netflix is borderline.

"Arielle, die Meerjungfrau" ist die neueste Realverfilmung eines Disney-Klassikers. Arielle wird von der schwarzen Schauspielerin Halle Bailey gespielt - was zu teils absurden Diskussionen geführt hat, so Regisseur Rob Marshall.

"Es gab nie eine Agenda, eine schwarze Schauspielerin als Arielle zu casten. Sie war einfach die Beste. Die Figur deckt sehr viele Facetten ab, die muss man auch spielen können. Sie bringt das alles mit."

Chat with a co-worker last week about his upcoming #Disney trip.

Co-worker: "Didn't you used to go to Disney now and then?"
Me: "As one might imagine," (gestures to body with a flourish) "I'm not really going to Florida any time soon."
Co-worker: "... oh. Right."

It was kind of funny in the moment, and we were laughing (it was a *very* dramatic flourish), but days later I'm still thinking about that exchange. He didn't really know what was going on beyond "Florida politician being anti-LGBTQ again". He didn't know that trans people could be arrested for going into the "wrong" bathroom (and that for some there is no "right" bathroom). He didn't understand base level fear being magnified by state-sponsored legal harassment.

In retrospect, I think he read the exchange as "screw Florida, I'm not spending my queer money there." Which is not untrue, but I don't think he registered that going to Florida at all would be literally putting myself at risk.

Yes, there's Netflix cartoons with a lead character that's LGBTQ ("She-Ra"), and there's secondary characters/characters as part of ensemble casts who're gay (i.e. Luna Loud in "The Loud House," Lunella's friend's two Dads on "Moon Girl", etc.). But think this is the first kids' cartoon on a traditional animation outlet (WB/Disney/Nick) with someone LGBTQ as the actual star. (Assume certain politicians in the Sunshine State are livid.)

On #TombTuesday, I'm remembering Sebastian Cabot, an actor many of my generation will remember for his role as Mr. French in Family Affair, for narrating #Disney's early #WinniethePooh movies & as the voice of Bagheera in #TheJungleBook. He had a very impressive career on stage, on TV and in movies.

In August 1977, Cabot suffered a stroke at his home near Victoria, B.C. and died at the age of 59. He was cremated and his ashes interred in Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles.

A black and white photo of the actor, Sebastian Cabot. He is sitting in a chair, visible from the waist up. He is wearing a twead coat and vest, a bow tie and sports a very neat dark moustache and beard. His hair is nicely slicked back, making for a very distinguished image.

Cartoon version of Bagheera, the black panther from Disney's The Jungle Book. The character has a large, happily surprised look on his face. His fur is black, his muzzle is grey, his nose is pink and his eyes are yellow. You can see two lower fangs and whiskers on either side of his face.
A picture of Disney's Winnie the Pooh, with a butterfly on his nose. Pooh is a yellow bear wearing a red shirt. He is smiling and looking at the butterfly.

@GottaLaff It’s stunning, isn’t it? We’re quickly drifting into #fascism and some people are more worked up about #Disney movies than they are about real life villains turning our country into an Orwellian novel featuring Tarantino level violence.

New rule: all children's shows and movies must contain at least one character who is illegal to talk about in #Florida schools; simply to own the bigots.

Most people just don't appreciate just how important #copyright is to #art and #artists. Thank god Mozart and Beethoven had #DRM and Content ID policing on their songs or else they would never have made a name for themselves. Also thank god that famous fairytale writers like Hans Christian Anderson, Brüder Grimm and Charles Perrault had their content copyrighted for eternity, or else an evil corporation like #Disney would totally have stolen their stories and gotten rich off their work!

> "We operate responsibly. We pay our fair share of taxes. We employ thousands of people and by the way, we pay them above the minimum wage substantially above the minimum wage dictated by the state of Florida. We also provide them with great benefits and free education, so I’m gonna finish what is obviously kind of a long answer by asking one question. Does the state want us to invest more, employ more people and pay more taxes or not?"
