Tim Burton ‘Finished’ With Disney After Filming ‘Dumbo’

Tim Burton has revealed that his days with Disney may be ‘over’.

Burton, 64, opened up about the future of his career during the Lumière Festival in Lyon, France. The director revealed that the only project he is about to embark on is the Netflix series “Wednesday” – “The Addams Family”.

During a press conference, Burton criticized Disney for becoming “too monolithic”. The studio focuses only on Marvel, Star Wars or Pixar movies.

“It has to be very coherent and very coherent. There is less room for different kinds of things,” he said, according to Deadline, before announcing that he would not be working on a Marvel movie.

“I can only handle one universe,” he said. “I can’t handle a multiverse.”

Burton also admitted that he was “kicked out” from the studio multiple times throughout his career.

“My history is that I started there,” he noted. “I’ve been hired and fired a few times throughout my career there. The ‘Dumbo’ thing is why I think my days with Disney are over. I realized I was Dumbo, that I was working in this big horrible circus and I needed to escape. That The movie is autobiographical on a certain level.”

Despite his decision to stop working with Disney, the “Nightmare Before Christmas” producer indicated that he never considered going the independent film route.

“Here’s the thing,” Burton said during the press conference. “An independent film, I don’t know. I basically only worked with studios, so I didn’t really understand what an independent film was.”

Burton began his career with Disney. His work on “Stalk of the Celery Monster” led the studio to offer him professional training in animation.

His early work, which did not finish in the final films, included “Fox and the Hound”, “The Black Cauldron” and “Tron”.

After establishing his career, the director is best known for his fantasy horror films, including “The Adams Family,” “Beetlejuice” and “Edward Scissorhands.” He is also known as “Batman” and “Alice in Wonderland”.

His latest project, “Wednesday,” will premiere November 23 on Netflix, according to Deadline.

Burton runs the show alongside Al Gough and Miles Millar, the creators of Smallville.

Jenny Ortega plays Wednesday in Addams.

“Wednes is currently a teen, and we’ve never seen her as a teenager before. Her stinging, pompous notes might not necessarily sound charming when they come from someone who probably knows better than a 10-year-old girl about playing the character,” Ortega said of playing the character.

“And we’ve never seen her on screen that much. Any time I’ve seen her on a Wednesday, she’s been a lonely character, a joke ending, and she’s always a hit, and I think that’s what people really like about her. But in this show, every Wednesday scene.” There is an opportunity to give her a little more dimension, and become a little more of a real person, which I don’t think we’ve seen before.”

Luis Guzmán stars as Gomez Addams and Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Adams in the upcoming Netlfix series.
