Disney's epicc fuck up with Mulan is glorious. Both Western and Chinese audiences hated it, for different reasons, but equal hate. Disney pandered to the Communist Party and thought it would be an instant hit in China, but barely anyone payed for watching it in China as everyone there just pirates all the media they consoom. Despite that Disney specifically tailored the movie for the Chinese box office, Chinese absolutely hated it as they felt the movie was playing off cultural stereotypes, it bastardised the original story and didn't really understand Chinese culture at all, like some fake version of Chinese folklore made by Westerners trying to pander Chinese people and government while being completely out of touch with Chinese culture. Great job, Mouse!

Fucking knew it, man. There was always the huge risk that the Chinese would see this as a fake version of their folklore made by people that don't actually understand anything about it. Because that's exactly what this is.

They might as well hire a bunch of retarded weebs to make a Chanbara movie. Except that would probably be more hilarious.

They could've handed over a fuckload of cash to a Chinese studio if they wanted to pander to them exclusively, but the (Western) Left hates not having complete control.

In the end Disney also managed to anger the CCP as this movie roused public debate about these Uyghur concentration camps. Laowhy was 100% right when he stated on the video that it's never a winning move to pander the CCP. Everyone from the West will hate you for it and you can become their enemy for reasons beyond your control, no matter how much you kiss their asses. It would be glorious if this would end in Communist Party telling Disney to piss off from China with their Shanghai Disneyland theme park. :lol:

I doubt there'll be any long term repercussions. If producing Kundun didn't make the Chinese tell Disney to fuck off forever then Mulan certainly won't.

If they released Black Widow on Disney+ they'd make a billion dollars. NPCs are cooming at the thought of new capeshit. Plus it would kill theaters for good, so do it Disney. Do it!

I don't think anything will happen but the situtation isn't quite the same. Doondoon was a movie nobody gave a shit about made over 20 years ago when the CPCP was marginally less autistic. Moolawn was made in the current year when the CPCP is big sperge and everyone hate chink and muh wiggers.

China has moved from being all Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon do being more vocal about defending its honor.

They can just re-release it in theaters after the Corona Crisis with an extra 2-minute post-credit scene.

Finally watched the two Conan movies. Kind of meh, actually, though the sets were pretty amazing and the women (except for Grace Jones) were fucking gorgeous, like old school Penthouse Pets. Even that short-haired chick from Superman II was an epic piece of ass. I can't imagine a movie made in current year having the same scale and epic sexiness. The tv show is going to be gay as hell.

Just look at those women (including jailbait Olivia D'Abo):

Gal Gadot is Cleopatra, from the director Wonder Woman 84.

Prediction: Caesar will be a drumph analogue, while Antony will be a misunderstood pretty boy instead of a drunken homosexual.

Don't get your hopes up. They're already crying whitewashing.

And I assume Caesar will be the whites of white boys they can find, with no Mediterranean teint to be found.
