Thread: Disney seeks new purchase.

  1. #1

    Default Disney seeks new purchase.

    After the 4.5 billion dollar purchase of Lucas films and planning another set of star wars films, Disney is now seeking to purchase another company to include in it's collection....Hasbro. This will be a major buy (not that Lucas and Marvel weren't) This will change a lot, including MLP, Transformers, and G.I. Joe under the Disney name.

    So what is everyone's thoughts on this? Should Disney try to purchase Hasbro? if so, do you think it's for the better or worse? How will this change the things that Hasbro currently owns?

    I for one say that if Disney has the money, go ahead, they have proven they can do some great things. Look at what they have done for Marvel, do you think we would have the Avengers if not for Disney?

    I'm apprehensive about it, because of the example that EA has set. EA swallows up a bunch of great companies and craps out DRM-ridden piles of ass. I don't know how it works in animation but huge companies getting huger doesn't seem to ever be a good thing for their customers.

    markets at work... if we live in a free society, companies should be free to grow as large as possible (so long as they aren't abusing / doing illegal things)... support the decision..

    I am curious but concerned because Disney is truely becoming the new "Walmart". I Find managing such an amassed wealth of "characters" quality control goes down the tubes. Transformers and G.I. Joe in my opinion were both poorly handled in the movie industry. I would like to see something good come out of their latest buy before they go gobbling onto other major names.

    I would like to see if Disney can actually handle making a good action sci fi with an older audience in mind and not come off completely lame. They should not become overzealous with their asset buying or they could seriously financially damage them selves by buying things out of their genre.

    That being said I found all of the super hero movies minus iron man to be a bust and even Avengers was probably a 3.7/5 stars for me. Although financially successful overall Disney seems to make lots of movies I would categorize as "A one time watch or if its on tv then okay" bracket. Of course this is all my perception and everybody has their own feelings and likes ^^.

    Though I agree most shows on disney suck. Phenias and gerb may be good but lets be honest the show is garbage compared to ducktales, recess, pepper ann, kim possible, etc or anything like that.

    Yeah but then you look at the quality of Disney movies over the years, including the recent Marvel comics series and you can see that they can actually do things very well. Their TV shows haven't been good in about a decade minus Phineas and Ferb but you can't deny that Disney has produced some quality stuff over the years and it could do so with Transformers and G.I Joe

    I think it would be a great thing. Disney is loyal to it's franchises, and at least what i've seen, produces some top quality stuff. For example, all the toys that get made from Disney movies actually represent the characters. I don't know how likely it is to happen, but if they did buy out Hasbro, I think that would be great.
