I'm pretty sure you all know the story about Emoji Movie. It was heavily panned when it was announced back in 2015 and was even more hated when it was released in summer 2017. It is a worst reviewed mainstream animated movie and won 4 Razzies, something no other animated movie was able to do. But despite the almost universal hatred, it grossed a little more than 200 million dollars in theaters on 50 million dollar budget, it was a modest success, but not enough to get a sequel. I got myself thinking, what if not only just earned enough money for a sequel, but become a highest grossing animated movie in history of animation. Like grossing almost 2 billion dollars in box office. This is a very scary thought but now granted that (thankfully) didn't happen, but what if it did got that title of highest grossing animated movie in history of animation. Will movie line up from animated studios look different than it is now? Will quality go down?

There would be several sequels and the lower tier animation studios would definitely make copycat films. But for the bigger companies like Pixar, Disney & Dreamworks I doubt they would do anything different creatively wise. Maybe reduce the budget of certain films but that's about it.

probably give up on American feature animation for 3 years. Because that movie was so terrible i would've almost gave up on that medium. But i know better

GAME OVER

DESPAIR, for Western Animation is DEAD

THE END

...That's pretty much the basic grasp of it. Thank God that isn't the case and Western Animation continues to get better, IMHO - well, maybe not in film's sense at the moment.

Ugh, TheFutonCritic website is down. Now we can't find out what is premiering, especially on Nickelodeon, FOX, and Cartoon Network!
Disney is having such a bad time this month. With removing of Love, Simon and moving it's series to Hulu because it is too "mature", stopping production of Lizzie McGuire because it was also too "mature", having a "LGBT representation" in Onward and she only appears in ONE scene, few DisneyParks shutting down temporarily due to Coronavirus, their stock went down, Bob Iger left, and is being replaced by Bob Chapek
I know I’m saying this out of nowhere but, I wish The Hub was still around. My favorite shows were Dan Vs. and The Aquabats Super Show.

Cort Lane leaves Marvel animation.

I'm hoping at some point this decade, Netflix will finally pick up one of Fresh TV's new projects instead of Cartoon Network (not to sound offensive but seven shows seem quite enough).

Also if Total Dramarama does get cancelled at some point, Fresh needs to put the Total Drama franchise to rest (not abandoning it) for a little while and focus on other projects like Lucas the Spider.
