I've seen Spies in Disguise, but not the others in this period, so this is very informative smiley - ok

"Illumination Entertainment. They had enjoyed modest success with Rio" - 'They' is Blue Sky, I see smiley - ok

"Warning: Does Not Contain Peanuts" - smiley - laughsmiley - ok Peanuts is in the Edited Guide smiley - okA1073972 That is great that Bill Melendez's voice work was so versatile it could still be used - I used to enjoy the Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show smiley - biggrin

" Curiously despite the anti-bull fighting message, the star of the film, John Cena, is a wrestler." - despite the anti-fighting message?

Oooer - a bit of a typo in the plot section of Spies in Disguise smiley - flusteredsmiley - rofl

That is a shame Spies in Disguise didn't do well at the box office...

Nicely concluded - fascinating how Disney has turned into an even more massive enterprise - to be able to spend $71 billion...

But yes, it was disappointing how 'Spies in Disguise' underperformed at the box office. The only thing I can think of is the old adage that you have to appeal to the mothers, typically who decide which films they are taking their families to which is why certain animated genres in the west such as fantasy and science fiction consistently under-perform. Yet that said 'The Incredibles' spy/superhero films have done spectacularly well.

Who doesn't love Will Smith as James Bond? Yet it didn't do well despite being one of Blue Sky's best films (I'm just now trying to resist the temptation to write '#BlackSpiesMatter')

Ah, yes that adage would make sense - the Incredibles is a very family-oriented superhero genre. Spies in Disguise is perhaps more aimed at the teenage boy market, which is a difficult one, as you say, but it is definitely worth watching for Will Smith as James Bond smiley - cool
