[RUMOR] Nintendo and Disney Teaming Up for New Projects (Including Movies)

Post by Zero Revolution on Sat Feb 27, 2016 10:04 am

So a rumor is now coming from GoNintendo, where RMC believes he was given information regarding Nintendo and Disney teaming up for more projects, including movies.

RMC wrote:For the last few hours, I've been pouring over some information that happened to come our way. I went through a number of steps to verify the source of the info. I'd say that I'm satisfied enough with the info to share it with you, but I'll still keep it marked rumor. It's not something Nintendo/Disney will comment on, so we'd rather be safe than sorry. That said, please believe that I did put in work to verify these claims.

Last year, we heard a rumor about Nintendo and Disney teaming up on multiple projects, including the potential for movies. That rumor came and went, and there really hasn't been much talk of it since. That all changed a few hours ago when I received a Powerpoint presentation. It's this presentation that seems to indicate that the Nintendo/Disney deal for movies is indeed legitimate.

The Powerpoint presentation in question was created by Cisco in order to analyze Hasbro and see what they're competitors were up to. This presentation looks at all areas of operation for Hasbro in order to try and help them put their best foot forward. There's talk of Mattel, Disney, Nintendo, Activision and others. Most of the talk is related to the toys-to-life category, as amiibo and Skylanders are mentioned. It's another part of the presentation that is a bit more interesting.

In a 'competitor update' slide, there's mention of some projects that Mattel and Disney is taking on. Mattel had some shifting of executives, which is mentioned in small detail. A few points about Disney are mentioned, but the one in particular we're interested in states that 'Nintendo and Disney are coming together to create movies'. There are no other details provided, but I think that one mention is certainly interesting enough.

This is just one page of a 26-page report that looks at all sorts of industry trends and plans for Hasbro. It's worth pointing out that this presentation seems to have been created sometime in early 2015. That said, what we've seen of it does seem to look legitimate.

We've seen Nintendo working with Disney in some interesting ways last year, including a rebroadcast of the Nintendo World Championships and even a Mario Kart 8 special tournament. It's clear that Disney and Nintendo are buddying up in some small ways, but this presentation sure makes it seem like those special events were just the start of something much bigger. Thanks to our inside source for the heads up.

I tend to believe him, but I don't know, the fact that he just says the information came his way and the fact that we don't really know his verification process makes me pretty skeptical. Either way though, I can totally see this happening. Disney and Nintendo work together quite a bit, especially in recent years, so doing something as big as working on movies would make sense, and be pretty cool.

I thought Universal would have made more sense since they would be able to strike 2 deals at once. With that said Disney Pixel would be a hand and glove fit with most Nintendo series and Mario and Mickey Mouse on the big screen at once would be huge.

I'm so up for a Nintendo movie and I do love Disney too. Maybe it's something Zelda related? That would make sense for a movie, I'd go see it.

I'd love to watch Nintendo on the big screen. There's lots of potential for tons of hype in these new projects. Disney and Nintendo isn't a far combination, and they could bring both companies profit. If Nintendo does their part right

How is it that Disney can make Nintendo movies, while Universal can have Nintendo attractions at their theme parks? That's what seems to destabilize this rumour to me.

^ Disney and Universal are on pretty good terms and I don't think Disney would want Nintendo themed rides in their parks being that they don't own any of their franchises. (neither does Universal but I feel like Disney is more protective of theirs) They probably don't really care about Nintendo's teaming up with Universal because it wouldn't really interfere with this partnership. But then again I'm not Disney so who knows. XD

That's a really good point Luma. I don't think it really matters if Disney and Universal are on good terms or not. Disney and Universal both make movies and own theme parks, right? Why would they go with another company if they could have gotten movies in their theme park deal? I doubt the whole dispute in 1982 regarding Donkey Kong and King Kong would have anything to do with it. Although there are reasons for choosing Disney like if they wanted to do a crossover with their franchises then that makes sense. That's the only reason I can think of for why they would go with Disney instead.
