10 Animated Movies that “Stole” their plots (by ScreenRant)

Clickbait-y thumbnail is clickbait.  What a shocker.  Of course we’d have this sort of luck today…

ScreenRant, I like your stuff most of the time, but Goldman’s lawsuit against Disney does not need to any more publicity than it’s already gotten.  Unless it’s from us, pointing out just how idiotic his claims are.

However, to ScreenRant’s credit, it seems as though they wrote this piece back before Goldman had amended his claims to include his “evidence”.  There’s no way they would claim that Zootopia was a stolen idea if they’d read that.  Or rather, I’d like to give ScreenRant the benefit of the doubt here.

You can watch the full video after the break.  The Zootopia section starts around the 7:30 mark.


(Edit: yes, I dislike this video enough that I’m not going to bother adjusting the html of the embedded video to make it look decent.  Youtube’s decided that this is the default size, and in this instance, I’m not going to correct them.)
