Also, another thing before we get into The World is Not Enough, Disney will be bringing out the Gold Collection (Starting in 2000) and Platinum Editions (Starting in 2001) ITTL, but I'm gonna need some help spacing out the Gold Collection releases starting in 2000.



Sure, I can help. What's the full list of the Disney film archives as of now?

The World is Not Enough


In 1997, Tomorrow Never Dies crashed and burned. As a result, United Artists CEO Barbara Broccoli decided it was time to part ways with Pierce Brosnan, who been playing James Bond for a good decade and a half. Now it was time for a new James Bond. United Artists hopes they've found him in the form of 32 year old Shirebrook native Jason Statham. In The World is Not Enough, rather than play it safe, director Guy Ritchie takes the franchise in a new direction, making Statham's 007 grittier and much closer to Ian Fleming's vision of the character. One tradition Ritchie has kept is that of the Bond Girl. On this outing, the Bond Girl is none other than Yunjin Kim as Electra King. Critics applauded the casting of Statham as breathing new life into a franchise that was getting stale. However, moviegoers were split along generational lines. Older viewers who were more used to Connery or Moore, did not take too kindly to Statham. Younger viewers, some of whom were previously disinterested in 007, credit Statham's performance for helping broaden the appeal of the franchise.

 
"The number of baby boys named Walter has increased by about 200% since 1977, while in recent years, names like John, Donald, Ralph and Vincent have each fallen in popularity in only the last three years."
- The St Louis Post-Dispatch.

Hopefully, After this, the bond films will go back to being based on the books. I'm seeing Statham sticking around for 6 more movies at least. The Facts of Death all the way to Die Another Day. All that over 6 years before Statham returns one last time for Devil May Care in 2009. Three years later, the franchise gets a reboot with Carte Blanche. Sound good?​

Sounds good. Shall we draft a schedule for the next few Bond films?
 
Pokemon: The First Movie
Although it had been out for about a year and a half in Japan, the first Pokemon movie finally arrived in North American theatres in time for Thanksgiving '99.



Imported ITTL by Grand Diamond and dubbed in English by Ruby Spears in association with Nintendo Studios and 4Kids Entertainment.
Upon its initial release, Pokemon: The First Movie was accompanied by the preceding short Pikachu's Vacation.

The film follows Ash and his friends as they accept the challenge from a bio-engineered Pokemon known as Mewtwo. The film also introduces Mew. Additionally, Togepi, Misty's new companion, is introduced in Pikachu's Vacation.

While critics said adults would not understand the appeal, Pokemon: The First Movie was an instant box office hit. Of course, the film had its share of merchandising and tie ins.
ITTL, disaster is averted as the Pokeball was scrapped in the negotiation phase in favor of conventional packaging for the kids meal toys from Burger King.

Headlining the soundtrack are M2M and Weird Al Yankovic.​

Old navy do you like the idea of werid al comming up a segual to uhf in 2000 or 2001. I could see allow making it to protest the death of indpenet locla tv. The flim should focus on george trying to save his station form a greedy media congomerate. Some body suggested that the head of the congermate be a compisite of Ted Turner negitve aspects and Donald Trump.

Sounds like a good idea, but I am not so sure if too much time has passed for a UHF sequel.
 
2000-2001 is a lot late for a direct sequel and a little early for 80s nostalgia, granted, but c'mon, it's Weird Al. Doooo iiiiit.
I see the move as an attack on how cabel and the and the big studio producing program for the networks they own has particully killed local tv
