The video has managed to garner a lot of hate for the CEO as many fans commented on their thoughts about the same. Stating various reasons for watching the movie, the adults came together and claimed that adult people too like animated movies.

“I always say that one our fans and audiences put their kids to bed at night after watching Pinocchio or Dumbo or The Little Mermaid, they are probably not gonna tune into another animated movie. They want something for them” said Bob Chapek during the course of the video.

Many people took to Twitter and commented about their stories regarding animated movies and how some movies, despite being too childish managed to change perspectives.

The topic of animation is thrown under the bus as the age-old debate rekindles once again. Although the age demographic for animated movies are aimed at kids, several movies like Frozen, Inside Out, and, Soul changes the way adults perceive the world around them.

During the half-hour session with Wall Street Journal, Bob Chapek explained how he had planned to incorporate Disney+ streaming activity along with a person’s experience at Disney theme parks! The CEO went on to explain that with the audience’s permission, the theme parks would get notified about what you liked or disliked about your previous visit and “what you’ve been through” to make your next visit more enjoyable.

“If you’re on Disney+, we should be aware, assuming you give us the permission to have that awareness, of what happened, what you experienced, what you liked the last time you visited a park. And, vice versa, when you’re in a park, we should know what your viewing habits are on Disney+.”

There has been no official response from Bob Chapek regarding the adult and kids animated movies debate as he prepares for the upgradation of the theme parks and some modifications to Disney+.
