Disney’s worst nightmare is the public domain.
Not even a joke and that’s what makes it hilarious
Yes. That is the theory.
@i will get a name soon it’s abot
It’s actually democracy.
I’ve heard talk that Disney is trying to extend the copyright law another 50+ years
Props to Mat and the team for bringing such engrossing theories
@JokerCrowe it’s a bot
Your name and profile pic ☠☠☠
there are like three of the bots that i can see in this comment section so far
I’ve noticed the addition of the Steamboat Willie animation into the Disney logo, but I always thought it was just a fun reference and callback to the origins of the company, a way to honor their heritage. I never realized that it was a skeezy way to dodge copyright law. That kinda makes me feel bad.
@Mikayla Eckel Cifrese Because we’re living in end stage capitalism. It’s not just about winning; it’s about crushing everyone else. Not only does Disney want to bleed the consumer base for every penny they can, they also want to make sure that no one else can earn a single thing. Yes, letting Steamboat Willie go would have a negligible impact on their year-end profits, but they didn’t rise to the top of the industry by being nice.
Honestly, it seems kind of dumb to me. Like, seriously, _who cares_ if people can use a centuries old version of Mickey that most people aren’t even familiar with? Like, they can’t seriously be making a noticeable amount of money off of content that old, and the current version, which is _very_ different, will still be protected by copyright. So I really don’t get why they even care that much.
@Ladyspiderwick Regardless, Mickey Mouse himself is also trademarked.
*Plus, Disney’s been trying to get Steamboat Willie trademarked before it enters the public domain.*
It’s rather smart if you think about it, nobody would recognise it unless they’d seen the original steamboat willie animation
A horror movie with Mickey Mouse would be quite unique
U kidding? I wanna see a Mickey Mouse Gangster film. like with Mafia gun fights and everything. but an idea like that would probably have to wait till all the characters enter public domain
Willy’s Steamboat Slaughterhouse
Nope remember the trade mark.
Doesn’t surprise me that Peter Pan is one of the ones next up to become a horror movie, depending on how you look at the original work it practically is close to being one already and probably would require surprisingly little adjustment to become full-on horror. Peter Pan just as an individual is just creepy.
@Gann the Derpimann “sussy baka” 💀
As my brother likes to summarize Peter Pan, he’s basically a kidnapper who kills the children he kidnaps (hence the lostboys and them never growing up) while Captain Hook is the police officer who knows it’s Peterand is chasing him to stop the killings. Tinkerbell is a form of trickery to keep or take the kids (Like candy, gifts, promises, other kidnapping things). Wendy and her brothers were his latest kidnappers that managed to escape and get away from him…
He used to tell the story that way toscare me as a kid, now that I think about it… He’s right
A horror film based on the original material would be genius, but I think they’re just going to make it into a lazy slasher flick.
@Sally Kilby that’s like the only show (well that and supergirl) where I prefer the crack ship over the actual ship. Everything else, I prefer the actual ship
The Peter Pan horror… yeah that one already exists in literary form. The book is called Lost Boy. And while it may not appear as a horror (and I would agree that it can be discussed whether it’s horror or not) but once you start to think about it as a backstory, it becomes a bit chilling.
@Lopez, Roilan S. they did the peter pan story well in the tv show once upon a time
@thegoldenfox951 it’s like those Facebook things where kids are looking at a newspaper like “why won’t the buttons work”
I mean the original Peter pan is already horror enough (kidnaps children, kills lost boys who grow up, etc.)
@Sanchee its a book you cant get a link
I love how mat manages to stay consistent with all his channels
Did you notice his voice drop at 11:00 ?
@Jack Wrath I’ve been doing it wrong my whole life 💀
This is the most I’ve ever got
@Daniel Cho “This is not my channel” about 3 months ago on The Game Theorists
He got bought out he contractually has to
Not Only the Original Mickey will be in the Public Domain, people forget about the original Minnie and Pete will also too.
Nah, Nah, 50 Shades of Pete with Pete and Minnie in the starring roles.
@Scourge Of Man your thinking too small 50 shades of mini soon come
So Mini will be the one to go on a killing spree after the decapitation of her beloved Mickey by a giant mouse trap! We’ll call it:
Mini The Mouse, Cheese and Whine 😭
People have always been doing horror things with beloved characters. Worst fear for companies is when it becomes legal and can go on the big screen: public domain
Someone is 100% going to make a horror movie based on all of the Disney characters 😂
