DisneyToon Studios To End "Sequals" Program

Since their birth, in 1994, with The Return of Jafar, the sequels have entertained (and made) millions; they've also enraged no small number of Disney fans who see them as little more than desecrations of the beloved originals. DisneyToon Studios, the last division of the Company to still produce direct-to-video sequals, has announced the end to the program. DisneyToon Studios head Sharon Morrill has no mixed feelings over the end of an era. "I knew from early on when I first started that we weren't going to be doing 4s and 5s," says Morill. "I think we had a great run, but we have to be fresh and innovative, otherwise we would've gotten stale."

Epcot Visionary, Tim Onosko, Passes-Away

Within the Disney empire, Tim Onosko was known as the go-to guy for the future. By often accurately forecasting how technology would alter the entertainment landscape, he developed a reputation as a high-tech soothsayer. At Disney, he helped refine the newly opened Epcot in Florida in the 1980s by steering the theme park's designers toward cutting-edge gadgets. He also played a more ethereal role: By celebrating what technology could do, according to company executives, Onosko helped the engineers and designers known as Imagineers lose their fear of stepping into the future. Onosko, who also was a journalist and filmmaker, died March 6 at his home in Madison, Wis., after battling pancreatic cancer, said his wife, Beth Abrohams. He was 60.

Disney May Unlock 'Song of the South'

Walt Disney Co.'s 1946 film "Song of the South" was historic. It was Disney's first big live-action picture and produced one of the company's most famous songs -- the Oscar-winning "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah." It also carries the story line of the Splash Mountain rides at its theme parks. But the movie remains hidden in the Disney archives -- never released on video in the United States and criticize by some as racist for its depiction of Southern plantation blacks. The film's 60th anniversary passed last year without a whisper of official rerelease, which is unusual for Disney, but President and CEO Bob Iger recently said the company was reconsidering.

WebDisney is proud to present Melanears's detailed report and pictorial of the Tokyo Disney Resort ...

"Ever since finding out last spring we were moving to Okinawa, Japan, I've been more than ready to visit the Tokyo Disney Resort, something I never imagined doing in my lifetime. We planned for 5 nights, Sunday-Friday, with 3 days in the parks. Overall, we didn't have much of a plan, and I admit, I didn't do a lot of research beforehand. They don't take priority seating for dining until the day of, so we didn't make an advance arrangements. We also didn't have any advance transportation arrangements made, as you buy your bus tickets to the resort at the airport. And park tickets were to be bought at the hotel. So with only plane tickets and a hotel reservation, we were off!" --Melanears, Director INTERCOT Guest Relations

Disney Wants Web to Ad Up

Because moviegoers are demanding it, distribution windows will do some further shrinking, so movie studios should work closely with the exhibition industry to ensure that consumers get what they want without inflicting pain on theater owners, the Walt Disney Co. CEO Robert Iger said Monday. In a wide-ranging presentation at the Bear Stearns Media Conference in Palm Beach, Fla., Iger also said that next-generation DVDs "will take over," Internet downloads do not cannibalize other distribution formats and the newly designed Disney.com is an enormous opportunity for advertisers. Iger said that in the month since its relaunch, Disney.com has been streaming about 100 million videos per week, and Disney intends to better monetize all that action via online ads.

Since the days of the 1928 Mickey Mouse classic "Steamboat Willie," animation was Disney's undisputed long suit. But after a recent decade-long parade of disappointments, most famously the 2002 bomb "Treasure Planet," the studio was desperate for a change of fortune. Enter Lasseter who, along with a close team of handpicked animators had made Pixar this generation's premier storyteller with an unbroken string of hits including "Monsters, Inc.," "Finding Nemo" and "The Incredibles." The first filmmaker to run Disney's animation operations since Walt Disney died in 1966, he said he wants to reclaim the studio's golden era.
