When I can, I like to link to other people’s content in place of producing my own, because that’s easier and I’m seriously regretting my decision to try and update this blog daily for a full year. Today, though, I’m linking to someone else’s content because it genuinely blew me away. Breadsword, a YouTuber with exactly two uploads, made this video on Treasure Planet and why it didn’t do well. Treasure Planet is a fantastically well-animated movie with tons of engaging characters based on a vivid reimagining of a classic children’s story, but despite having run myself dry on positive adjectives to describe it, it barely brought in half its production value and was fourth in the box office the week of its release. This video seeks to answer the question: Why did a great movie do so poorly?
