Tim Burton: He swears off "terrible circus" Disney

Cult director Tim Burton (64) can certainly be described as Disney's own creation. As a young student, he received a scholarship in the animation department of the world-famous company and has worked for it on and off for over 40 years. Burton's words, which he now drops in conversation with the US industry website "Deadline" regarding Disney, weigh all the more heavily. During the shooting of his live-action adaptation of "Dumbo", he noticed that he felt like the little elephant himself.

"I realized I was Dumbo and I was working in a huge, horrible circus that I had to escape from. To some degree the film is autobiographical." This realization is the reason why the 2019 film was probably the last collaboration and his "days at Disney are numbered".

Burton, who is known for his dark and fairytale films like "Edward Scissorhands" (1991), also insists on criticizing the new direction of the film studio. Instead of giving smaller projects enough room to develop, in his opinion they would concentrate too much on mega franchises like "Star Wars" or Marvel. "It became very homogeneous, very compact, with less space for other things." His clear dig at the MCU: "I can only get involved in one universe, I can't deal with a multiverse."

On the film front, he currently has no specific project in the pipeline, Burton further revealed. He is therefore not involved in the planned sequel to his film “Beetlejuice”, which is said to have been in the planning stage since the beginning of the year. Thanks to his Netflix series "Wednesday", which he developed together with Alfred Gough (55) and Miles Millar (55) and also acts as a producer, he still has enough to do. The series about the eponymous "Addams Family" member, played by Jenna Ortega (20), will premiere on the streaming service on November 23.
