You might have noticed that several of the Sailor Moon-related links have changed. That is because I have finally opened my own domain name, SailorSoapbox.Com.
The Best and Worst of Disney and the old Archive posts will be staying on this blog.
My domain name is intended to combine all of my Sailor Moon related content, which includes the Ikuko Itoh, High-Res Screenshots and Setting the Record Straight posts. There will also be my wallpaper and Sailor Moon Drops image archives.
If you’re here for Disney, great, you’re in the right place. If you’re here for Sailor Moon stuff, see me at SailorSoapbox.com.
…I’m just really slow at updating it. The way that the Best and Worst of Disney reviews are structured, it gives people the impression that I haven’t updated in years, and that isn’t true! Updates are posted on the ‘hub’ page for the reviews, I don’t make separate posts for each film.
I am still writing the Disney reviews and Sailor Moon analysis posts, and the best place to keep updated with them is my Patreon. How it works is that Patrons contributing $1 or more get early access to new posts (and notifications appear in their emails), and the posts go live to the public 24h later.
What has changed is that the majority of my time is now taken up by the Patreon, as I make three sponsored posts (they can be articles, film reviews, poetry, Photoshops, basically whatever inspires me) every month that are exclusively available to Patrons. If you like my writing and want to help support a disabled writer, please consider contributing!
Also, if you’re seeking some more snark in your life, I’m also very active on Twitter, under the username @SailorSoapbox.
Either way, as multiple people were under the impression that this blog has been abandoned, I wanted to make this post to say that I’m Still Here and I’m Still Writing!
Thanks, everybody. Love ya. ❤
When people say Hollywood have run out of ideas, this is the kind of thing they’re talking about. It’s hard not to be cynical about all of these live action remakes, especially since Disney has announced so many of them in such a short time. While some of these films have original stories, much of the work of coming up with ideas and characters has already been done. So far, most of the remakes haven’t improved on the original films, though they’ve certainly earned Disney a hell of a lot of easy money.

These films get their own section because there are a whole lot of ‘em. After Disney executives shut down production on the many direct-to-video sequels, satellite studio DisneyToons was tasked with creating films for the Planes series (a spinoff of Cars) and the Disney Fairies franchise, a spinoff of Peter Pan exploring the fairy world that Tinker Bell originally came from. The franchise was marketed similar to the Disney Princess franchise (with the same target demographic), with dolls, books, a meet-and-greet section in the Disney parks, and a film series released between 2008 and 2014. Future sequels were cancelled because they weren’t making quite enough money on DVD sales – I figure it was a case of market oversaturation. I’m not exactly the target demographic so I’m merely ambivalent about these films, but I can tell you one thing – if I were 20 years younger, I would have LOVED THE SHIT OUT OF THESE MOVIES.
