Who would have thought that putting a woman in charge would have created problems?
Not me, not you, and not the execs over at Disney, clearly.
It takes a special kind of stupid to mess up Star Wars so badly, so they had to send their A-Team. Now that the franchise is a smoldering wreck, Catherine Powell was sent in to at least make the theme parks fun for the kids.
Catherine Powell, who oversees the U.S. and Paris theme parks for The Walt Disney Company, is leaving the studio, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
As president of Disney Parks West, Powell was in charge of Disneyland Paris, Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Powell was also in her post during the recent openings for two new Star Wars lands — Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World in Orlando and another at the California Disneyland park — that fell flat on attendance.
Disney had to follow up the turnout for the Star Wars attraction launches with discount pricing and aggressive marketing.
It’s understood from sources at Disney that Powell’s post has been eliminated, and she will help in the transition as her staff reports to Disney Parks, Experiences & Products chairman Bob Chapek.
The studio had high expectations for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which feature two rides — Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run — and varied sci-fi shops and restaurants with Star Wars themes.
The park was a total mess. A total flop. Just like with the films themselves, everyone is sitting back and saying: “I don’t know how they could have messed up so badly, but they did.”
Now, Disney is in desperation mode. They’re pulling out all the stops to try and drum up some interest in their half-baked park.
The complaints about the park include:
- Only two rides
- Overpriced merch
- No Darth Vader
- No iconic planets like Hoth, Dagobah, Tattooine
- Too many niggers
All of this could have been avoided if the kike who runs Disney, Bob Iger, had toned down the social justice agenda.
Her departure also stands in contrast to Disney CEO Bob Iger in a New York Times profile on Sunday promising to put more women in top executive positions at the Hollywood studio, with an eye to greater gender parity.
Bob Iger really is the Jew who is the most to blame for all of this, not the dumb wahman.
This was all to be expected. High Ashkenazi IQ at work here.
No one is going to see the new films, no one is buying the stupid merch and no one is going to the Disney Parks.
It’s all going to burn down.
