If I remember correctly, Frozen was the first "Disney Renaissance-esque" (musical, grand plot) movie since, well, the Disney renaissance. I think that line in the Frozen trailer had less to do with "The Lion King is the best Disney movie ever and we are comparing ours to it" and far more "look how we are finally returning to form".

Similarly, it's kinda funny reading about Zootopia's marketing since we know how well it did after release. But prior to release, it had all of the warning signs that Disney wasn't all that comfortable with it: March release date (when their less popular movies come out), the first trailer (https://youtu.be/5nP9hU8eUfE) was... terrible. The seconds trailer, while I personally like, I get the impression others were not so impressed by. But nevertheless, in that second trailer (https://youtu.be/jWM0ct-OLsM), you also see Disney pushing the whole "brought to you by the same creators that made Frozen, Wreck-it Ralph..." (and a few other movies I forgot) even though the actual creative team of Zootopia almost had nothing to do with those movies, just the backing financing studio. But hey, those movies did well, and we have no confidence about this one, but those movies you liked, so come and see our new one!

Disney bet big on Moana being the bigger and more prestigious success, and while it didn’t flounder like Pocahontas did compared to tlk... Zootopia made more money and got more prestige.

Moana had Lin Manuel Miranda behind the music, he was a household name pre release thanks to Hamilton and his fame keeps on growing and growing and growing...

And in spite of Moana not being the Frozen-like success Disney probably wanted they were extremely wise not to burn bridges with Lin.

Very true about Lin Manuel. Disney cast him in Mary Poppins Returns, and now Hamilton will finally be adapted into a movie. He's also writing for the new version of The Little Mermaid.

Agree about Frozen's success being an indicator of Disney's return to form.

????

Hamilton isn’t being adapted into a movie. We are decades away from that. What is happening is that Disney bought the theatrical rights for a recording of Hamilton from 2016 I think? Disney paid 75 million and it will make 10-20 times that in revenue. That’s just how big Hamilton is.

We are finally getting a movie adaptation of In The Heights and that is a decade old and ended years ago and wasn’t nearly as successful as Hamilton.

Hamilton has been bought and many sources are saying it will be a 2021 film using the original Broadway cast. Or basically it’s just a recording of it that will be released in theaters, if that’s what you’re saying Elton. Because that’s what I’m reading.

Edit: Ok yeah, NOT an adaption, just a recording that’ll be released theatrically.

I'm on Twitter, and it is one of the trending topics right now. "Hamilton" movie is happening with the original Broadway cast starring.

This is a report from Variety. Disney and Lin-Manuel have also made the announcement on social media.
