East coast film reporter Eric Lurio sent us this note concerning The Wild:
“For the first time in its history, Disney will NOT, I repeat, will NOT be screening an animated feature for critics. As you know they’ve screened even live action shit like Meet the Deedles. I’ve been going to all-medias for Disney animated films for over ten years This has never happened before.”
On the heels of the Pixar acquistion, The Wild must really be an embarassment. The ad campaign, currently in progress, is probably a contractual obligation. I predict this film will make a very speedy trip to DVD.
