Tim Burton

Fired from Disney

15 Dec, 1984

Burton is fired from Disney after the film was completed; the studio believed the film was not suitable for the young target audiences:

It wasn’t like Alan Sugar saying ‘You’re fired’. I didn’t quite get it that strong. But yes, we parted ways at that point. We have a nice revolving door policy! It’s all based on projects and how companies change. It was a ‘thank you very much, but you go your way and we’ll go our way’ kind of thing.
