For my own amusement I've been trying to think of a Disney movie that isn't based on some previous story.
Well I didn't say copied, but you're right, I think everything has some inspiration behind it. What I'm really getting at is Disney coming up with an original story for a movie. Closest I've found so far is The Aristocats. Although it was inspired by a previous story the plot of the film seems to be original.what counts as copied and what as inspired?
Oh definitely, everything is built on what's gone before it. But there is a difference between adapting a novel/short story into a movie, and just writing a movie based on whatever the screenwriter's ideas are at the time.i think ALL movies derive from something else.
I had no idea, and certainly knew nothing about it when I saw these films as a kid. But then, too, once you start looking at the credits a surprisingly large number of films both today and in the studio era are based on short stories or novels.It was based on the 1961 book Car, Boy, Girl by Gordon Buford.
Like pirates, based on a ride I think.Tomorrowland is the first movie that comes to mind. Really good movie too.
The Fleischer brothers created Fitz the dog (which eventually became Bimbo the dog) a few years before Disney created Mickey. And Steamboat Willie was based on Steamboat Bill.was Mickey Mouse a stolen idea I think? or not?
Lion King was based on HamletWatching the "new" Lion King with my kids the other day
