Word is, last week, many of the development execs at Disney were shown the door. In an attempt to clean house and make Disney the Disney of old, this was the first necessary step.
The layer of uncreative development execs that micromanaged projects to death over at the mouse are reportedly gone. I haven't seen any official word on this, however I was told by a friend that was told by his friend that is close to the situation. I'm waiting to hear it for myself from someone more direct. However, this wouldn't surprise me in the least. Good riddance to rubbish.
