in my mind Shrek happened around 9/11 So I guess it makes sense for the timeline to fall around that pre or post 9/11 scale

Are animations made better by not using "established" acting talent? I think I like more animated films these days than I did from the 1970s/1980s. Good actors tend to be in good films. If you have the skill and professionalism necessary to carry a starring role in a Disney film I think there's a solid chance you've already got an established career in entertainment.

Just watched all three Aladdin's with my kid recently and let me tell you....aside from the second one not being good in general, the animation in it was seriously horrific. Grotesque, even. The third was actually not too bad and I loved all the genie jokes. aka when Mrs. Doubtfire made an appearance.

The making of Aladdin was exacerbated by the former Disney boss Mike Eisner (and his rival the former DreamWorks King Jeffrey Katzenberg) screwing over Robin Williams.

Robin Williams got screwed over because the Disney Company was adhering to its usual money-grasping, pro-capitalist policies.

Come January this video will probably be deemed child appealing since it’s about Aladdin even though it’s clear audience is adults. Stupid FTC and COPPA.

Fun fact: The Little Mermaid actually offered the role of Ursula to Bea Arthur, but she turned it down, to put this in perspective.

I'd argue my beloved Toy Story also payed a role: The fact that it had Tom Hanks and Tim Allen was a big feature of the marketing and, unlike Robin, they weren't even really breaking anything in particular to the role. I'd also argue that celebrity voice acting goes back further then you're saying. Paul Lynde did about as much as Vincent Price, and, for that matter, you had names like Basil Rathbone and Bing Crosby duel-headlining Ichabod and Mr. Toad, or as far back as Cliff Edwards playing Jimmy Cricket. Sure, to a MODERN audience, those guys aren't well-known, but back in the 40s, those guys were HUGE names.

For anyone who is weird enough to care, that interviewer was Ray Martin at the end. He was like THE Australian news guy back in the 90's, recognisable by his voice and by his black, bowl cut hair that had enough hair spray in it it was street legal as a bike helmet.

While I enjoyed this video, the mis characterizations of a-listers as b-listers and not realizing that Antz and Shrek weren’t “ripoffs” of Disney so much as they were satires of the Disney formula. He had massive success with Disney, so why would he want to be petty after the fact? And Ferngully is great, so is Anastasia and Shrek, you can’t tell me otherwise. The tone of condensation is just giving me the twitches lol. Like, at the The Rescuers came out, Eva and Bob were a-listers. Eva was also in Aristocats. Even if they were more famous for their work on the stage like Sir John Hurt (put some respect on his name!), it doesn’t make them b-list. They know they need names the adults will recognize when they take their kids. Same with half of the other casting choices. Also please tell me how Meg Ryan was miscast? Because she wasn’t 18 years old? I will admit that I mix up Batty and Bartok a lot, but Bartok is cute and funny too. It’s also funny how Eddie did Mulan and then turned around and did alllll of the Shrek movies lol.

Antz was a ripoff of A Bug's Life. A bugs life was under production when Katzenberg was fired. Then when he was hired by Dreamworks, he asked them to produce Antz and made sure it came out before A Bug's Life to get back at Disney.
