Disney is using AI to correct gender bias in its movies

When you break down classic Disney movies, they usually have very problematic undertones. I mean just look at Ariel, the red-headed mermaid, from The Little Mermaid who was more than willing to give up her voice for a man. Not to mention how Kiss The Girl, a song about Prince Eric and Ariel’s sexual tension, argues that consent isn’t necessary in the lyrics — “There is one way to ask her / It don’t take a word / Not a single word / Go on and kiss the girl.” But Disney has also been progressive i...

Wall Street analysts predict the winners and losers of streaming TV's next phase, from Netflix to Comcast

The next stage in the cord-cutting revolution could see streaming services like Netflix and Disney Plus bundled alongside one another, not too differently from the way TV channels are today, analysts at Wall street firm Barclays predict.

'If Disney World's Star Wars Land Is a Flop, Why Is It So Crowded?'

An anonymous reader quotes an analyst for the Motley Fool: With so many industry worrywarts and Star Wars purists taking a dim view of Disney's bicoastal Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge expansion, I figured I'd check out Florida's version on Saturday afternoon. Would I get pelted by drifting tumbleweed while slurping down some blue milk? Would my voice echo in a barren Droid Depot? Would I leave accepting that the first phase of what initially seemed like a slam-dunk expansion has turned into a coloss...

'Suicide Squad' Director Urges DC and Marvel Fans To Stop Feuding

An anonymous reader quotes Cinema Blend: At the beginning of 2019, approximately a half year after James Gunn was unceremoniously fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it was officially confirmed that he'd be jumping to the DC universe to write and direct The Suicide Squad. Then, just two months later, Disney and Marvel reversed course and rehired Gunn to helm Guardians 3, though because he boarded The Suicide Squad in that interim period, he's tackling that DC tale first and then will jump...

The digital ad business can't police itself. It's time to let the feds do it.

The digital advertising business is getting squeezed from every direction. But is heavy regulation such a bad thing? Mike Shields, the former advertising editor for Business Insider who is now CEO of Shields Strategic Consulting, argues that we've been waiting for an ad tech shakeout for a decade, and nothing is happening. We've had self-regulation, verification, fraud prevention, and supply chain optimization. And yet the user experience on the internet is still horrible. We need the feds to ...

Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan has mostly avoided television in his two-decade career. He discussed why at a New York Comic Con panel on Thursday for his upcoming Apple TV Plus thriller series, "Servant." "You can probably count on two hands every show that has gone from beginning to end with the same quality," he said. "That was terrifying to me." But he was drawn to "Servant" because it's a half-hour thriller and "had a play-like quality to it." "Servant" debuts on Apple TV Plus on November 28...
