of all the worlds you could have picked to make kids-friendly…Paramount could be driven to produce an animated epic fantasy for Nickelodeon. For example a relatively kid-friendly version (or spiritual succesor) of Dark Sun.
while there are external circumstances, blaming it all on them seems wrong.The incomes are going to arrive later Paramount wanted, but there are some external circustances. It is not fault by movie itself.
The opening week already wasn’t where it would need to be to break even at the box office. Mario the week after had only a minor impact. It’s not like HAT stopped having viewers altogether, it had a pretty normal drop-off rate.
