Newt de Disney/Pixar cancelada

Es oficial. Newt, el filme Disney/Pixar que se estrenaría en el 2012 esta oficialmente cancelado. David Smith, archivista de los estudios Disney, lo ha confirmado a un blog dedicado al mundo de Pixar vía un correo electrónico. La película, trataría de el amor forzado entre dos salamandras, Newt y Brooke, las ultimas de su especie, que serian obligadas por los científicos a reproducirse. Hace unas semanas, Disney/Pixar anuncio que su estreno para el 2012 sera Monsters Inc. 2 y la ausencia de mención de Newt, que había sido anunciada desde el 2008, ya nos indicaba que algo pasaba con este proyecto, que experimento problemas en su producción desde principios de Enero.

¡Este proyecto iba destinado a convertirse en una de las más Grandes Obras Maestras de los Estudios Disney! Lo tenía todo: Una historia que te podía llegar al corazón, emotiva, arriesgada, original... ¡Todo!
De todos modos, creo que es muy pronto para opinar que está cancelada.

Walt Disney earnings jump, thanks to 'Alice in Wonderland'

LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- Aided by nearly $1 billion in worldwide grosses for "Alice in Wonderland," the Walt Disney Co. on Tuesday reported higher net income and sales that inched ahead of Wall Street forecasts.

Disney /quotes/comstock/13*!dis/quotes/nls/dis (DIS 35.28, +0.15, +0.43%) said net income was $953 million, or 48 cents a share, compared with $613 million, or 33 cents a share, for the same period a year ago. Reporting after the close, the Burbank, Calif.-based entertainment conglomerate said sales were $8.58 billion against last year's $8.09 billion.

Analysts polled by FactSet Research had expected earnings of 45 cents a share on sales of $8.39 billion.



"Alice in Wonderland" proved to be a bonanza for Disney, scoring $331 million in U.S. receipts and another $630 million overseas, much of that earned during the month of March. The film helped Disney's studio-entertainment group to a 17-fold gain in operating profits, rising to $223 million from $13 million a year ago, all on a 7% increase in revenue. Disney executives had targeted the division for improvement last year at this time.
The media-networks division, however, saw flat income on sales gains of 6%. Disney's cable group managed to eke out a 3% gain led by ESPN, but the broadcasting group's income fell 24%, due mostly to lower primetime and news ad sales.

Initial comments from Wall Street were positive, as Citi analyst Jason Bazinet called Disney's results "strong."

"While media networks margins were a little soft, studio margins were significantly better," Bazinet said in a note to clients.

The company's parks division saw a 2% gain in revenue but a 12% drop in income. Higher fuel costs and promotions on its Disney Cruise Line were responsible for the decrease.

Disney Chief Financial Officer Jay Rasulo said that reservations for its parks were down 10% for the current quarter, but added that it wasn't surprising due to the fact that pricing is creeping up from recessionary levels.

"Consumers are still out there waiting for bargains. We are waiting for each other to blink," Rasulo said, later adding: "We play the rate and volume and lever that on a daily basis."

Disney Chief Executive Robert Iger added, however, that as the company has raised its hotel rates closer to normal levels and in the past week has seen stronger bookings, which he said was an encouraging sign.

Still, while Disney shares ended trading Tuesday up 1.3% to $35.76, meager results at parks and media networks left the company's stock struggling after hours. Shares were down 2.9% to $34.78 in post-session trades.

Carlos dijo...

Consumer products posted sales gains of 20% that translated into a 37% gain in operating income, due largely to Disney's recent acquisition of Marvel Entertainment, as well as higher same-store sales at the namesake stores.

Iger said that the company has seen the "most activity" in Marvel licensing deals, and added that he plans to distribute the units films once its deal with Viacom Inc.'s /quotes/comstock/13*!via/quotes/nls/via (VIA 38.49, +0.16, +0.42%) /quotes/comstock/13*!via.b/quotes/nls/via.b (VIA.B 34.57, +0.08, +0.23%) Paramount Pictures unit is fulfilled.

Disney completed its purchase of Marvel at the end of 2009, and Paramount controls the distribution rights for several Marvel properties, including last week's blockbuster release of "Iron Man 2," which made more than $128 million in U.S. receipts during its debut, fifth on the all-time list.

Another acquired Disney unit, Pixar, is planning to ramp up its production of films over the next few years, Iger said, and the division is moving into larger facilities in the San Francisco Bay area.

As part of that increased production, Pixar will be releasing a number of sequels, including "Toy Story 3" next month, "Cars 2" in 2011 and "Monsters Inc. 2" in 2012. But Iger stressed the unit was mixing those sequels with a number of original releases, including "Newt" in 2011 and "Brave" in 2012.

"We are not forcing sequels into the system unless we have directors and storytellers who have good ideas for the sequel," Iger said. "We didn't mandate a sequel on any of those."



Y, lo más importante: El último párrafo.
Y en él dice que él no fuerza a hacer secuelas, solo que sus directores y storytellers tienen buenas ideas para determinadas secuelas, y perjura que por ellos, que no les han mandado hacer secuelas, que era cosa de ellos (de Pixar).
Ahora Bob Iger dice lo contrario:

Naveen de Maldonia dijo...

Ya no se ni que esperar de Disney en general.

David dijo...

Carlos, como haces para siempre escribir tanto? jajaja yo no podria, mi vida social se acabaria derrumbando! jaja en fin! me da igual todo lo de pixar, me gusta mas disney

Naveen de Maldonia dijo...

Aunque te dire David, que con todo y todo Pixar se ve mas alentador que Disney, por lo menos en un futuro cercano.

David dijo...

ya se que se viene mejor pixar que disney, pero no soporto que suceda eso :S naveen mi opinion ya la conoces soy Deiff-2 en el foro Desde Burbank

Naveen de Maldonia dijo...

Y es que nos enfrentamos a una gran disyuntiva. O apoyamos los estrenos del estudio para que este se recupere o les damos una leccion para que agarren la onda.

bryanbmp dijo...

me parece ridiculo q digas q te da igual PIXAR,,,,si en los ultimos 15 años ha sido PIXAR quien ha salvado a Disney de hundirse, y no lo digo yo, lo dicen las cifras de TAQUILLA ,,salvo ciertos estrenos como piratas,,,pero en animacion,,,le da pero de kilometros,,,O me vas a decir q no esperas con ancias toy story 3 ? disney no ha acabado de dar un hiper mega salto desde el rey leon,,,aun asi no creo q deberias poner a disney y pixar como rivales,,ya q ambas pertenecen al emporio BUENA VISTA y desde 2006 pixar es disney y YO estoy con ambas,,pero PIXAR es PIXAR,,,en lugar de esta riña deberiamos mirar a nuestros verdaderos rivales q son DREAMWORKS SKG y FOX BLUE SKY,,,

bryanbmp dijo...

Es mas les comento como dato de q es probable de q NEWT haya sido cancelado por culpa de la FOX, me explico,,, se sabe q su estudio de animacion Blue Sky esta realizando su proxima pelicula RIO, y adivinen q? esta tal RIO tiene una sinopsis identica a la de NEWT,,(la de las ultimas especies q no se toleran y bla , bla, bla),,,solo chequen en alguna pagina o metance a UPCOMING PIXAR y lean el post de thoughts of newt,,,se dice tambien q otra peli llamada alpha y omega tambien tiene parte de su sinopsis,,,,,al parecer otra vez los estudios verdaderamente rivales copian las ideas a pixar,,es una lastima,, ,,esperemos q a Gary se le de una oportunidad de dirigir, ya q Lifted es de lo mejor

Carlos dijo...

Ismael, la verdad es que yo tampoco sé que esperar de Disney...
David, te sigo en DESDE BURBANK, por cierto...;)
Respecto a lo de escribir tanto, en realidad solo una cuarta parte de los tres comentarios que hay es mía, el resto pertenece al documental del que he hablado, copiado y pegado directamente de un foro, aunque me estoy dando cuenta de que hubiera sido mejor poner simplemente el enlace al documental XD.
Y créeme, en realidad aún juntos esos tres comentarios, no son gran cosa. Lo que ocurre es que la longitud de cada línea del comentario es muy pequeña, solo caben unas ocho palabras en cada una, y el texto se hace muy largo. Pero si se colocara todo de forma que ocupase la pantalla completa, no ocuparía ni cuatro quintos de pantalla.
Respecto a lo de escribir tanto, suelo alargarme en mis opiniones, y expresarlo todo con todo detalle. Pero no me lleva gran parte de mi tiempo. Me gusta escribir, y lo hago, pero no necesito estar mucho tiempo haciendo un comentario de ellos. Escribir fluidamente... ja ja.

Anónimo dijo...

NOOOOOOO!!!! YO QUERÍA QUE SALIERA ESA PELIIIIIII!!!!!!! TENÍA TODO PLANEADO Y LO ARRUINARON!!!!!
LO ÚNICO Q M FALTA ESPERAR ES D Q LA CAMBIEN ALMENOS PARA DEPUÉS DEL 2012!

Anónimo dijo...

Yo tengo aquí el sinopsis de la peli, para q veamos q tiene en común con esa peli copieda d la q hablan:"Newt y Brooke son los últimos tritones de pies azules, macho y hembra, del planeta. No soportan estar juntos, pero se ven obligados por la ciencia para salvar su especie. Ese es el problema que enfrentaran Newt y Brooke, y los llevará a una peligrosa e impredecible aventura en la que descubrirán que la búsqueda de una pareja no siempre pasa como estaba previsto, aunque sólo tienen una elección. El amor no es una ciencia."
Solo quiero estar seguro d algo, New es la hembra o el macho?? XD!!
