Disney is queuing up reboots and remakes for many of its animated films, updating them with live-action and new CGI — but it’s screwing over the writers and creatives behind the originals. Find out how and why.
When you come up with an idea, you expect to be compensated fairly. That’s sort of the deal in Hollywood.

Check out the video from Center Row and let’s talk after the jump!
