Disney is very well known in the entertainment industry. They own so many entertainment franchises and companies that have become huge in our pop-culture: Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and we haven't even gotten to the Disney originals yet.
Disney was always known for movies like Beauty and the Beast or Cinderella, but lately they've been buying companies and in my opinion, they have an unfair amount of power in the entertainment industry. In 2006 they bought Pixar, in 2009 they bought Marvel Studios, and in October 2012 they bought Lucasfilm. It is almost unfair that Disney gets so many well-liked movies now. It's almost like the entertainment industry is controlled by Disney. However, it got even worse just a few weeks ago when they bought the film company, 20th Century Fox, and got possession of not only the Marvel characters they may need: Deadpool, Fantastic four, and all of the X-Men, but also according to the Verge article, Disney has acquired 21st Century Fox’s film and TV studios in a landmark deal, they had rights to 30% of Hulu and now have 60%. That's a lot of power.
So why is this a problem? The Entertainment industry may no longer be a free industry like it should be. The Entertainment Industry is practically being controlled by Disney at this point and that makes me very uncomfortable personally. It'll be harder for indie film makers to make well known and good films. Also, film makers, actors, etc may have to only be in more Disney films than any other film. Films have started to become the same style more often as well making them plain boring. I mean, I love the MCU but the style of film is way too similar. Not to mention rules Disney has put in place such as the "no beheadings" rule which requires screenwriters to limit themselves a bit when it comes to producing film.
While gore is disturbing for many audiences, it also is important for a dramatic story or an adult story. I just think overall that Disney has too much power and it is harder for filmmakers who do not want to be associated with Disney to make a living off of film making.
What do you think? Please share opinions, I'd really appreciate it.
