I know Animal Crossing was always going to be a big seller, but I’m curious how it would have stacked up if it hadn’t released alongside the pandemic. It was a perfect synergy for sales.

Published in’98? Nope. Disney ejected everything besides the movies and shows from the canon. Some of it has been reintegrated in new stories, though, so maybe ol’ Dengar can dig him out again.

This seems like Disney is just making the most out of a product that’s mostly complete. Whether they don’t want to drop more money on reshoots or they physically can’t because the young actors have Read more

You say that like Marvel has been all A-listers. Iron Man and the Avengers are A-listers now, but over 10 years ago none of the Avengers characters compared to Spidey or DC’s trio.
