    Who do you have cast as the good Doctor? And hopefully, Pirates of the Carribean can get a solid trilogy ITTL. Other than the Haunted Mansion, what other theme park rides could become films? A better take on the OTL Tomorrowland film could work. The kicker? Tomorrowland in this rendition would resemble Walt's beloved Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, fully-realized and then cranked up to 11.

    And maybe he'd also be a parody of sleazy televangelists since he's a Reverend of some kind of church. Maybe he'd waver between being a televangelist, pervy Catholic Priest, and a leader of a Jonestown-style cult depending on what the situation requires. Or maybe he's a televangelist who happens to have a Jonestown-style "religious retreat" in the jungles of South America. This version of Ren and Stimpy would get away with a bit because at least some of the jokes would be in the subtext. Closer to Animaniacs-style humor than old Ren and Stimpy-style humor.

    That works.

    No problem. You still answered.

    Funnily enough I did mention an idea of an animated version of Jules Verne's From the Earth To The Moon to @OldNavy1988 which would've used several elements of EuroDisney's Space Mountain (providing if the attraction is the same as OTL) such as the cannon design and that since the ride was based itself on the book. Suppose the benefit of a film like this would be that we'd butterfly the Mission 2 and Hyperspace overlays the ride gets saddled with later on and we would still have the wonderful theme of the Verne version and this wonderful soundtrack on it too! :)


    Also, I've noticed that there is also a number of animated villains based on John K that have appeared from nearly everywhere, I can imagine ITTL there would be a few Top 10 lists of animated villains based on John K here. :p

    If I'm not mistaken OldNavy said he'd cast Keaneu Reeves as Dr. Strange.

    Hopefully he’d be closer to his Constantine performance than anything else in between Bill and Ted and John Wick.

    I still prefer the idea of there civilians. I was trying to go for a inspector gadget meet justices league vibe .In season two the incompetent heroes are joined by new competent member who is considered less marketable and treated like dirt by the cooperate sponoar. He knows and apperite the heroics of the john q citizens but he bound by a contract that forbies him form going to the media with facts that corporate dosn't like under pain of improisment. Also i did a little diging and recoside that the one of the three city was a guy with knack for fixing things and has of repairing gadgets this overly rich batman parody who has no seanse of money is throwing away. The batamna parrody could be the son of the incompent hero teams corparte soponsor

    Considering all it has going for it, I'm going to wager 10 bucks this succeeds enough to get five seasons or more. On the other hand, this is the same TTL Disney that owns Chuck E. Cheese, who was indirectly responsible for the Club Disney buildings in the mid-to-late OTL 1990's. So, take my bet with a grain of salt.

    DOCTOR STRANGE
    Released on June 27, 2003 by Walt Disney Pictures
    Based on the comic character created by Steve Ditko with Stan Lee

    The storyline is very much the same as the OTL 2016 film, except the beginning with Dr Strange losing the use of his hands is told in a flashback taking place before the events of Avengers 3.

    CAST
    Keanu Reeves as Dr Stephen Strange
    Sammo Hung as Wong
    Cameron Diaz as Night Nurse
    Jason Scott Lee as Karl Mordo
    Bruce Campbell as Kaecilius
    James Saito as The Ancient One

    The studio initially wanted Chow Yun-Fat for the role of Karl Mordo, but Chow already had a prior commitment to Turner's Bulletproof Monk.

    That's one vote for Touchstone to release LXG.

    Any others before I proceed?

    Uh, yeah. I have a suggestion: Hanna-Barbera Studios. My reasoning for this? IOTL, the co-founders tried to outsmart Walt Disney in the television business. In what better way to do that than to capitalize on his company's success with Marvel Comics? As a bonus, a couple of OTL Disney cartoons became made by the studio ITTL, such as "Teacher's Pet", for instance. However, I don't know a lick about TTL Touchstone Pictures, so it could be due to that for my preference to HB Productions to tackle this.

    ITTL Touchstone came about when ABC merged its own movie division with the former AVCO Embassy studio.

    So basically, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen as an animated series?

    That'd likely be the best choice for an adaptation of the comic series. Maybe they could try to get Alan Moore to write, or have some role in the series, to avoid pissing him off. Because if he's pissed off with the adaptation that he helped create then he has nobody but himself to blame.

    @HonestAbe1809

    Yeah and since Alan Moore is never happy with any adaptations of this work, I'm sure he'd feel much more relaxed flipping burgers.

    You know when we get to somewhere in the 2010’s

    Is it possible that Undertale could happen but as a Disney movie? Or it will still be a video game?

    Just wondering

    That honestly depends on the billion dollar question: Does ABC own both Touchstone and Hanna-Barbera ITTL? If so, and because it has been a short while since I asked this, but are there any other properties & companies up for grabs recently?
