It seems like Tim Burton won’t be working with Disney again.
Burton stated that he had such an unpleasant experience with the live-action adaptation Dumbo at the Lumiere Festival in Lyon, France, that he won’t work again for Disney.
It’s become very homogenized and very consolidated. The 64-year-old director said that there is less space for different types of items.
From Daily Wire:
The “Edward Scissorhands” creator didn’t answer the question about directing a Marvel film. Burton stated, “I can only deal in one universe. I can’t deal w/multi-universes.”
He also shared with the crowd that he had a long-standing relationship with Disney. It all started with his work as an animator at Disney decades ago. He spoke of being “hired, fired,” several times and cited “Dumbo”, the Disney project, as the deciding factor in cutting ties.
“My story is that I started there. Burton stated that he was fired and hired several times during his career.
He continued, “The thing about Dumbo is that it’s why my days at Disney are over.” “I realized I was Dumbo. I was working in a horrible circus, and I had to escape.”
Burton stated that the movie was autobiographical to a certain extent.
