Disney Exec Worried That Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ Could Alienate Disney Fans

Jojo Rabbit

Last week’s reports that Disney would stop 20th Century Fox’s film development and focus more on key franchises like Avatar didn’t come as a huge surprise. The studio was bound to cut back on some of the smaller lesser-known properties. And the news comes in the wake of Fox Studios films operating at a loss of $170 million for the quarter.

And now we are getting a new idea of how Disney might determine which films will be a part of the release slate, and which ones might fall by the wayside. We’re also learning that Disney is worried about edgier upcoming titles like Taika Waititi‘s Jojo Rabbit. More on all of this below.

20th Century Fox

When Disney acquired 20th Century Fox earlier this year, it really changed the entertainment climate. The Mouse House has become a giant media conglomerate. They own various studios, TV networks, and will soon be launching a streaming service. However, there appears to be somewhat of a downside to all of this, at least when you look at it from a stockholder’s point of view.

Disney chief financial officer Christine McCarthy revealed Fox films were at an operating loss of $170 million for the quarter. With these films performing lower than expected, it is forcing Disney to stop production for various 20th Century Fox titles and redirect their focus to key franchises like the newly acquired Marvel properties and Avatar. More on the report below.

Avengers: Endgame

There was a point in time when it looked like Avengers: Endgame wasn’t going to make it past James Cameron‘s Avatar as the highest-grossing movie of all-time. Though it was a pretty arbitrary milestone that is practically meaningless, because we all know which is the better of the two films.

Not that the title would have given Avengers: Endgame any more validation it needs, but it has happened, as confirmed by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who announced the news to a packed Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con. More on all of this below.

Dark Phoenix starring Sophie Turner

It seems that Dark Phoenix, the final installment of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men film franchise was destined to fail right from the get go. Of course, the first film helped usher in a wave of adaptations which would eventually lead up to the highly successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, and to a certain extent the DC Extended Universe. However, after debuting with a weak $33 million, it is starting to look like X-Men is more X-Meh.

And like most big budget films that don’t to live up to expectations, there is always some sort of behind the scenes troubles that may have contributed to failures. That is no different with Dark Phoenix. More on the report below.

We’ve always expected that Disney would be making some major cuts to Fox since they acquired the entertainment assets back in March.

Among the first things to go were some employees. At the time, some 4,000 employees were to be affected by this merger, which also included Disney shutting down Fox 2000, a branch of Fox that released films like The Devil Wears Prada, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Hate U Give. Now Disney is moving on to other projects by cutting out even more titles. More on this below.

Fallout From The Disney-Fox Merger Begins As Fox 2000 Shuts Its Doors and Execs Are Given 60-Day Notices

20th Century Fox

Disney’s recently finalized acquisition of Fox this week was one of the biggest in entertainment history. The $71.3 billion deal meant that numerous properties that flew under the Fox banner would now belong to Disney. It also means that Fox’s Marvel characters can now play with Marvel Cinematic Universe characters. However, such a merger comes at a huge cost. Usually, that cost is jobs. As many expected, there are massive layoffs happening in the wake of this merger. Fox 2000, 20th Century Fox’s production branch that brought us films like Hidden Figures, The Hate U Give, The Fault in Our Stars, and Love, Simon, is shutting its doors.

But they aren’t the only ones. Some of the higher-ups at the studio are also being handed pink slips. More on the report below.

‘Dark Phoenix’ Trailer: The X-Men May Be Experiencing Some Déjà Vu

Dark Phoenix starring Sophie Turner

Dark Phoenix may be the final X-Men film under the 20th Century Fox banner before it goes over to Disney. If that is the case, then they will be going out on their own terms. And it looks like director Simon Kinberg could end the franchise with a story arc that we have already seen before: “The Dark Phoenix Saga.”

In it, Jean Grey becomes possessed by a cosmic entity and kills nearly all of life in the process. With the X-Men trying to regain control of their friend, there are outside forces that seek to manipulate her. And now we are seeing more of that, and how the new villain (Jessica Chastain) will stop at nothing to use Jean’s (Sophie Turner) new powers for her own nefarious goals. Fox has released a new trailer for Dark Phoenix, and you can check it out below.
