For the Love of GOD, Disney.

Can someone please hit Disney on the nose with a rolled up newspaper?

According to a trailer I've just seen, they're making a live-action sequel to The Sorcerer's Apprentice with Nicholas Cage.

Disney, you've been around for, what? About sixty years?

How about, just for a change, you create some new IP instead of still riding the coat tails of the stuff you created half a century ago?

I knew things were going downhill when I started seeing things like sequels based on classics like Cinderella and Peter Pan…but the Sorcerer's Apprentice? Are you serious?

The Sorcerer's Apprentice was an absolute masterpiece. It was one of the first cartoons that showed animation could be actual, honest-to-God art and not just doodle's for kids…and you're making a live action sequel starring Nicholas fucking Cage? Don't you realize that's like writing 'Macbeth 2' starring Jim Carey as a wise-talking CG Racoon?

How about you actually try creating something instead of whoring out your classics with multiple crappy sequels for once.

Then again, you are the company who fired John Lassiter. What was it your exec said when he showed them the first CGI short? "There's only one reason to use computers for animation, and that's if it makes things faster or cheaper."

It's obvious you have no vision or creativity left.

Well, here's hoping you go bankrupt before you get around to destroying all your predecessor's work… you know, from when Disney was a collection of creators, and not just stuffed suits.
