Looking forward to our discussion about John Carter on our next podcast? Take a look at this great three-minute video on Bloomberg TV about the economics and business strategy of Disney Studios. What I found particularly fascinating is how Disney is now releasing fewer movies and therefore making each film a riskier venture. Analysts seem to think John Carter was not well aligned with the Disney brand and was not well-suited for licensing in other businesses (e.g., theme parks, video games, lunch boxes). What do you think?
