It depends. Did they work on anything truly x-rated or anti-Disney, or just shooting or monster games? And did they actually come up with such terribly anti-Disney ideas in such games, or did they merely serve on some animation help or design help, perhaps only designing the very cities such bad gaming action takes place in?
Well, I don't know any details about what they specifically worked on, but I know many artists come from smaller areas of the industry, many of which are extremely different from Disney.
The point is - while yes, it is certainly a departure for Disney to go with an outsider as a director, especially an outsider that has been involved with more adult-oriented material, what's more important are the decisions being made for this movie
. If it turns out that Wreck-it Ralph is full of adult jokes and mature satire, then what you are saying is fair - this shouldn't be a "Disney" film. But, there has been nothing - nothing
- to make us believe that thus far, and so basing your opinion on the film solely on your preconceived notions as to what someone working on the film is like is extremely narrow-minded, let alone overly negative.
I understand your concerns. The concept of this film is still kind of difficult to grasp without seeing any kind of footage to give us an indication of how the film plays. It's hard to imagine it as a "Disney" film. But for all we know, the poor guy has been working on Fox shows for so long that for years he's wanted a chance to create something full of heart and full of emotion. He has his chance now, and I think we should all trust that he is capable of doing so unless he gives us reason to doubt. The fact that he has the entire team at Disney Animation on board with him is enough for me.
