The movie industry is as much controversial has the game industry.
I get it why the creator of this fan project was not allowed to monetize it.
It is based on work of other people. I agree with that part.
But at the same time I dont get how Disney is able to monetize that same movie now. It is not their work.
If you apply the same rules to both sides then nobody should be able to monetize it. (or monetize it based on a mutual agreement)
Disney always has been a greedy company. That reaches back to the very first movies and series. The people doing the work never really got the money.
That is no big secret.
But the company better should learn from talented creators than to steal from them.
The last two Star Wars movies were terrible while multiple fan films meanwhile showed how to do it right.
