The blogosphere versus Disney. Holy Hoses are up in arms too. How can we organise resistance?
As I remarked on Marie's blog, why even be surprised? After all that Disney has done to both A A Milne and Lewis Carroll? It really bugs me that sometimes they have managed to create a new classic out of their machete-work on classic children's books ("Mary Poppins" being the most obvious example), but sometimes it seems that rather than quarrying the original for buts they could use they've simply slapped the label on any old rubbish. Neither Disney-Pooh nor Disney-Alice bears any closer relationship to the original than the Bond films(after Thunderball) do to the corresponding books (before they ran out of books!)Good luck, but I suspect you're flogging a depressed donkey.
