In response to the recent release of a documentary on the making of the new Pixar film Finding Nemo, I have decided to cancel my annual Disney+ membership at Universal Studios, as I no longer believe in their continued support of this company and its films.
My reasons for this decision are simple: I do not believe that Universal Studios has the best interests of the public in mind.
Universal Studios is a subsidiary of Disney, which has been in business for more than 100 years.
Its mission is to create, develop, and produce new and classic films, live-action shows, and interactive experiences that bring people together to experience new and exciting experiences.
Their current offerings include: Finding Nemo – Pixar film that was nominated for an Oscar in 2015 and received an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature in 2018.
Cars 3 – Pixar production that earned a Best Picture nomination in 2018 and won Best Animated Film at the 2018 Academy Awards.
Finding Dory – Pixar animation that received an Academy Award nomination in 2019 for Best Animation in 2019.
Ratatouille – Pixar movie that earned an Oscar nod for Best Film in 2019 and received a Golden Globe nomination for best Animated Feature.
Pixar The Incredibles 2 – Pixar animated film that received nominations for Best Picture, Best Original Song, Best Animated Short, and Best Animated Picture at the 2017 Academy Awards, Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.
Dumbo – Pixar story-telling adventure that was released as a two-disc Blu-ray set and a three-disc DVD set in 2019, and won the 2019 Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film.
Moana – Disney animated film about a Hawaiian princess that received a nomination for an Academy award for Best Original Motion Picture at both the 2017 and 2019 Oscars.
Captain America: Civil War – Marvel animated film in which Black Panther was a star and Ant-Man a big part of the film.
Disney is a corporation that has a vested interest in the continuation of the Disney+ brand, and their financial success rests in their continuing investment in the films they produce.
However, they have also made a lot of mistakes over the years.
One of the biggest ones was the release of Finding Nemorhoo in 2017, a film that failed to win a Best Animated Classic Award at the Golden Globes.
The film was also a critical and commercial failure, but a critical failure is not a mistake.
It is a clear indication of how much Disney values their own products over the public’s.
Another mistake was the Disney-Pixars 2015 film Cars 3.
The film was released without a score and without any supporting footage.
Cars 3 was the first Pixar film to be made without an animator and with no sound design, and it was also the first film that had a trailer without an accompanying video.
This is not something that should have happened.
Disney should have waited for an animation director to produce and produce an animation trailer for Cars 3 before releasing it on DVD, and that would have been a much better outcome.
This decision will not affect the Disney Parks family of attractions, but it does highlight how much it values their business.
The Disney+ community has a large presence in Hollywood and Disney resorts around the world, and I believe it is important for people to know that they will not be getting support from this company.
It is important to note that I am not alone in my decision.
I have already made my decision to stop attending Disney+ and am deeply saddened that I have not been able to continue to support the company with my annual membership at their studios.
I know that the Disney community can be inclusive, and we are working hard to make that happen.
I do, however, urge everyone who does not believe in Disney+ to take a look at the alternatives.
