I feel the same about the Disney remakes that exist solely for the aforementioned Nostalgia Market (well, that and I feel Disney is doing these so they can keep the copyright on their iterations of what are otherwise public domain stories). I wish those would go away. Oh well, I can be rest assured that the remakes and Nostalgia Market are just nothing more than silly fads

well i mean like i see it being advertised everywhere, just a month ago they were showing off a frozen poster at the frozen food section of a food lion store i went to and it just had me rolling my eyes. i suppose it is an achievement for them to have a grouncbreaking box office movie from this decade, i guess i'm just finding the princess movies to be old hat.

Fads? I have my doubts about that. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the way of things for the foreseeable future.

You'd be surprised. It was like 9 years ago when Justin Bieber was everywhere. He remained everywhere for some time (until like 2014 or 2015). Just when it seemed like he wasn't going away, bam! Just another fad with his merchandise in the bargain bins and Goodwills

Or if you want a better example of "Just another passing fad", on November 29th, 1972, Atari (the company, NOT the console, just so we're clear. Yes, they were also a company. As one, they had a very rich and mostly unknown history about them) test marketed an arcade game called Pong. Within the next weeks, the market test was successful and the game went mainstream with many clones and variations and even a home version. For six whole years, it earned the title Undisputed King of the Video Arcade Game. Everyone back then thought it wouldn't get much better than that (even when Atari opened the first Chuck E Cheese in 1977 (true story. Google it), even they thought kids would be lining up to play Pong). Fast forward to 1978. This year we see Mork and Mindy make its debut on television, Arena Rock hitting the mainstream with bands like Foreigner and Journey (even though they were around a little longer than their Arena Pop Rock material), and a Japanese video game called Space Invaders invading its way on to the American video game market. With how well it did (to the point where it prompted even a quarter shortage both in Japan and the US), Pong was old news. Today, it exists as a classic (even if generations ahead of us know about it less and less each year. No joke). But back in the early to mid 70's, it was like the pet rock and Disco music. It was almost everywhere

"as far as the box office goes it was a decent follow up, but it didn't compare to the sales of the original, which was $400 million."



They're saying that the sequel is close to making 1 billion dollars.

@Mr Magic - Did they at least have the constipated remix of Let It Go (as I suggested to Disney back in 2014)?
