It's not just Old Disney. Revenge-releases and "dualing movies" are a common practice that IMO simply makes for a lose-lose situation. Dreamworks was notorious for doing this to Disney. Disney under Eisner did this to others. MGM studios was a much driven by a desire to poach from Universal as anything else.I hadn't realized how petty the Disney Old Guard could be and were, both to each other and outsiders, to the point that I'm wondering what sequence of events would have lead to Disney folding or being bought outright by someone else if not for the restructuring in OTL. "The Long Death of Disney" would be an interesting timeline, but not one I'm prepared to try.
