Tim Burton stated that it is likely the end of his collaboration with Disney.

In an interview that was published on Saturday, Burton discussed his ideas with Melanie Goodfellow of Deadline. After directing the 2019 “Dumbo” remake, Burton, 64, told the publication that he has no further plans to collaborate with Disney.

The star-studded cast of the “Dumbo” adaptation included Danny DeVito, Colin Farrell, Eva Green, and Michael Keaton.

“My history shows that I began there. Throughout my employment there, I was both hired and fired a number of times,’ Burton told Deadline. I understood that I was Dumbo and that I was working in this awful enormous circus and that I needed to flee, which is why I believe my days at Disney are over.

In a sense, that movie is really autobiographical, said Burton.
In March 2019, Burton admitted to IndieWire that the movie’s lead character spoke to him.

It’s my struggle and my tale as an animator, too. He questioned, “It’s a two-way street, right?” “They like me at Disney, but I get paid to be the slightly accepted freak,” one employee said.

The “Beetlejuice” filmmaker added that Disney is currently concentrating on Marvel, Pixar, and Star Wars stuff, which implies that certain projects aren’t getting as much attention.

It has become extremely homogeneous and consolidated. Burton told Deadline that there was less room for all types of things and that he would not be working on a Marvel movie. “I can only handle one universe; I can’t handle multiple universes.”

A request for response from Insider was not immediately answered by Disney representatives.

According to the AMC Theatres website, Burton was sacked from Disney in 1984 after producing “Frankenweenie” because he utilized studio funds to produce a movie that was too frightening for children. Burton had been a Disney apprentice in the early 1980s.

He reconnected with Disney in 1993 for the production of “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and went on to helm a number of additional Disney productions. His more prominent Disney productions include movies like “Alice in Wonderland” and “James and the Giant Peach.”
