You are well entitled to your stance - no doubt.

But they didnt give crazy George 4 billion for nothing.
Remember - he's also a large (second largest...I believe) shareholder now too.

It's coming in some form - sooner or later.

But I hear you...it's not the same as true Disney. In 1985 - they almost could not have been farther apart. Now they are closer - but still.

But look...neither is marvel, neither is avatar.

Harry potter, transformers, and potentially lord of the rings over at universal are all third party. They are leased at a high price to try and create sizzle or put butts into the parks.

This is the next evolution of the amusement park. You can't build a steel rollercoaster anymore...the world has gotten too "big" for that (or small...depending on your perspective)

It's gotta have a comic book character with merchandise tie-ins and sweatshops at the ready slapped on it now.
