I feel like I find out something new Disney owns every week. Next we’ll find out which porn sites they own.


Very similar to their Disney+/Hulu strategy


Nightmare Before Christmas was originally released under Touchstone.


>Touchstone is literally a pseudonym for Disney >Touchstone released *Who Framed Roger Rabbit* Jessica Rabbit is indisputably a Disney Princess. Add her to the lineup, you cowards!


1984 … I worked in home video then and I remember the launch of Touchstone quite well. Probably for all the cool promo shit they gave out with their early movies. Splash..was their first movie and there were large Daryl Hannah posters and small mermaid standups. Did I mention Daryl Hannah as a mermaid ?
