Fact #65

Robin Williams signed on to do Aladdin under the agreement that his voice was not to be used in any merchandising, and that his voice was not to account for more than 1/4 of ad time. Disney violated this agreement and Williams denied support for the movie.

Disney’s CEO tried to win him back by buying him a Picasso painting, but Williams returned the painting.

Subsequently, he did not appear in the second movie, being replaced by Dan Castelanetta.

Disney’s Descendants

Disney is set to make a new film about the descendants of some of their baddest villians…going to school with the children of some of our favourite protagonists.

Sounds weird, right? I’m not sure how I feel about this film, yet, but I’ll be paying close attention as more information is released. What sounds weird, and makes me not sure about the film, is that it’s going to be a live action film. It’s going to take a lot to pull that off, I think.

What do you guys think about this?
