    That wasn't a commentary on the prospects of The Walt Disney Company, it was a commentary on one division of the company--a division that is probably doing the least to contribute to Disney's bottom line right now. The movie division is just not operating in an expanding market. Focusing on the success or failure of individual movies is just a distraction. No single movie is going to move the needle in any significant way for Disney.
