Walt hated sequels

Disney is as Disney does. Yesterday.
Smallest theater i’ve ever experienced. Eleven rows of 5 seats each.
Bottom of receipt shows yesterday’s date. Just a moment in time.

Walt hated sequels.

“You can’t top pigs with pigs”, he said after a successful 1934 release of The Three Little Pigs (TTLP).

There were three sequels to TTLP, none of which ever topped the original.

It’s fascinating to me to see how our cultural values have morphed into embracing sequels – Toy Story has produced three.

Frozen 2 comes out November 22, 2019.

Note: perhaps what’s changed is we now have greater confidence in our ability to build on a blockbuster release.
