Disney is rumored to buy Harry Potter from JK Rowling and Warner Bros. It actually makes sense, not the sale that's insane, but the propaganda against Rowling could be corporate. Remember all the corporate hate against star wars right up till Disney bought it?

It would make sense on the designed hate propaganda against Harry Potter there's just one major issue that Disney probably overlooked
The Harry Potter fanbase saw what Disney did to Star Wars so they'll likely go to war online to stop a sale and JK Rowling saw what they did to George Lucas so she'll likely tell them to fuck off too. Even with the fantastic beast series getting mediocre, they weren't openly hostile to the fanbase as the Disney star wars was to their fanbase.
I suppose it'll entirely depend on how much more money she wants at once through the sale vs how much she'd get over time with rights and royalties.
She makes billions every year. The Harry Potter areas at universal are so overcrowded I tend to skip them when visiting the parks. So it would need to be a lot.
I mean she already has fuck you money, I think a greater reason for her to hold onto it is all the people that attack her are pissed of she owns the franchise so is probably more fulfilled knowing these cunts have to pay her to enjoy it.
The Harry Potter fanbase are retarded and have little to do with SW. Also, they hate JKR and would 100% want Disney to take ownership.
This is kind of funny considering I think Rowling passed on partnering with Disney to make the Harry Potter theme park because they weren't willing to provide the high quality she wanted.
The Fantastic Beasts movies were an abomination. However, that's not entirely Warner Bros. fault since it was Rowling writing their shitty scripts. It's debatable whether Rowling can write anything good at all anymore since everything she's added to HP after the 7th book has been utter dogshit (Cursed Child, anyone?) and it doesn't sound like her non-HP book do all that great (she had to reveal what her pseudonym was to get people to pay attention to them).
In addition, the Harry Potter movies had some flaws but they were for the most part big on staying faithful to the books. It's unlikely Disney can try pulling a remake and doing the usual unfaithful shit by making Hermione black and what not. And Disney would have to invest a lot of time, money, and resources to make the movies good since everyone will be comparing them with the original movies.
So what Disney will be buying is, if it's the entire HP brand, the theme park, merchandising, and they'll probably try some new spinoff HP movies. For Disney+ they might try some show series that fleshes out the years at Hogwarts.
To be fair, the Cursed Child was mostly written by two playwrights, she basically just approved it and slapped her name on it.
Fantastic Beasts though, is mostly her, as the main faults of it lie with the script.
To add onto this Disney basically fobbed her off, was only going to do a ride based on the system they later used for the toy story shooting gallery 'ride' and wouldn't do Hogwarts because they didn't want competition for their castles. Losing out on this and having the studios chump them out was likely part of what made them so IP hungry.
More and more this is starting to feel like Disney is becoming some Akira-esque monstrosity grabbing up every scrap of creativity in it's reach. I gotta agree though, Rowling really doesn't seem that interested in putting in the work that people want out of her, signing off on actual fanfiction showed that.
The theme park thing would be very interesting, because Disney would own 3 of the biggest IPs at Universal parks. The Marvel and Simpsons areas are already an interesting subject which people into that subject love to talk about.
Keep in mind that the "debloated Win11" should not be used as a daily driver. It's an interesting project, but don't expect any kind of actual support or fixes.
Not switching to win 11 until my computer bricks (this happened with win 7. Computer bricked after a windows update. Made me upgrade cpu/mobo too), service for win 10 stops, or some component with cpu/mobo/cooler dies. Or next time i reformat.
I put Linux Mint on a shitty laptop and I'm impressed with how well it runs things so far. Granted, I mostly play rogue-lite deckbuilders these days.
Disney recognizes a veritable motherload of references to shove up it's own ass
I doubt Rowling would sell to anyone let alone Disney. She’s got the money to support her own production house at this point.
That's super cool. Here's the start of the video with a comparison. I'm working on a side business using drones right now so this could be extremely useful. Curious about the efficiency.
Also wonder if you could use these a PC fans.

Major Hardware's channel is great. For those who don't know, he runs a for-fun competition where viewers design computer fans and he prints them and tests them.
That's awesome. There is so much to find. Today I realized my two godsons love it when I clap -they're 10 months old- so I looked up clapping ASMR. Sure enough, two hours of people clapping and happy babies.
Likewise, I see this as filling a very specific and amazing need.

How cancerous is this Win 11 compared to Win 7? Can the retard-tier UI, control panel etc be replaced with a decent one?
I have no idea, I stayed with 10.
What about for Win 10? Can it be de-tarded?
I'm sure there's a way, it's been out long enough.

Was this the condition for the majority-female Disney board being allowed to slip away?
The game has been a bestseller for weeks and it hasn't even actually been out most of that time. I think it will probably do fairly well.
Is the game about to bomb? I haven't paid attention honestly. The last Harry Potter game I bought was for the Wii.
It’s not all the reviews are incredibly positive which many reviewers are saying through gritted teeth.
The transparent shill campaign of making buying it a "referendum on trannies" suggests it won't sell on merit.
That is a point.
