Disney’s Downfall

Disneys+Downfall

In recent news, Disney has been under harsh criticism due to the current quality of their new production Wish. Striving to revitalize its image, Disney is releasing a combination of modern animation and the authentic Disney style we know and love. Fragments were released and the feedback has been fierce, critiquing the art and referring to it as AI-generated, additionally, complaints arose regarding the music. Many yearn for old Disney back. Moreover, the movie is admittedly very similar both musically and plot-wise to previous Disney films.

There has been a growing desire for Disney’s old art style, which has ultimately influenced the creation of Wish. Disney has recreated the aesthetic of original movie backgrounds in an attempt to meet this demand. However, when these classic backdrops are combined with modern characters, the result can sometimes be perceived as cheap.

Disney’s musical numbers are one of its most iconic attributes. However, when the song “This is the Thanks I get?” was released as the designated song for the villain of Wish, fans were devastated. They were left reminiscing about Disney’s golden age when songs like “Mother Knows Best” and “Hellfire” were popular, criticizing both the lyrics and melody of this new song.

Disney princess movies have always been widely popular, but recently some sources have raised concerns about the repetitive nature of these movies. They argue that Disney is reusing plot lines and character designs, making the movies too predictable. The “quirky” Disney princess ideology is becoming too niche and repetitive. We have seen this stereotype time and time again in the media, and many believe that we do not need another movie with similar plots and character designs.

All things considered, Wish may appear doomed for failure. However, success can be unpredictable and spontaneous. Who knows, maybe these critiques will be trivial when faced with the final creation.
