Anonymous: Did tangled have anything to do with frozens success?
It did indeed, funny story about that one.
See after the princess and the frog underperformed (It really didn’t, but Disney thought the film was going to do WAY better than what it managed to do).The execs thought okay we just finished pouring all this money into tangled, which is a risk cause we think folks are tired of fairytales musicals, so NO MORE. Whether that was the ceo or john lasseter’s idea I really don’t know, my guess would be someone not involved with the creative process. They even officially announced that tangled would be the last musical that the would do, thankfully they were wrong. Tangled ended up excelling their expectations and really managed to hold its own in the box office and merchandise. They started to see that people were interested again, people wanted to see Fairytale musicals. So low and behold they greenlit frozen in 2011 (The film was done in only 18 months). Then frozen dropped and much like a bomb it decimated any expectation they ever had for their animated films. So that means good news, not only are fairy tale musicals back, but now they have proven to the Execs that they can sell INSANELY well.
So I expect that giants will be greenlit for 2016, and I bet my shiny penny that it is a musical. All of this really happened because tangled happened! So anon to answer your question, yes.
