Come fatto in Cina, anche in Russia la Disney cerca di espandere il suo mercato.

http://www.mickeynews.com/News/DisplayPres...Q_id_E_9168Film

Walt Disney's first locally produced Russian pic is "Kniga Masterov" (The Book of Masters) a children's adventure based on some of the country's most famous fairy tales and characters.

Written and directed by Vadim Sokolovsky, head of production and acquisitions at Disney CIS, the Mouse House's Russian arm, "The Book" is being produced with Moscow's Three-T Studio, founded by director Nikita Mikhalkov.

Shooting on the film -- which has a reported budget of around $7 million -- began this month outside Minsk with studio filming scheduled later at Moscow's Mosfilm Studios.

Drawing on stories "adapted from Russian fairy tales we all know from childhood," the movie is aimed at family audiences with a release date set for fall 2009, Marina Zhigalov-Ozkan, Disney CIS head and general producer of the film said Monday.

Leonid Vereshchagin, general director of Three-T, said the studio was pleased to be working with Disney on its first film in Russia.

"We are extremely encouraged that Disney, known throughout the world for its film versions of immortal stories, aims to revive the feature-film fairy-tale genre in Russia," Vereshchagin added.

Sokolovsky, an experienced TV drama director whose work includes "An Occasional Fellow-Traveler," "The Ticket to the Harem" and "Ambulance 2," was last year nominated for Russia's Golden Eagle National Cinematography Award for his TV series "The Ticket to the Harem."

Sokolovsky had also gained experience working with Hollywood studios.

Jason Reed, general manager of Walt Disney Studios Intl. Production, said, "The credit goes to our team in Russia. Because of Marina Zhigalova-Ozkan's strong leadership and the hard work of her team, our first Russian-language production fully delivers on the goals of our mission internationally.

"We are working with a great director, one of the premier production companies in the world, and -- perhaps most importantly -- we have a wonderful story that will be a strong addition to the Disney tradition."

Sarebbe stato troppo bello! Purtroppo credo che fare un film animato e distribuirlo in un solo paese sia un po' come darsi la zappa sui piedi... Nel senso che non coprirebbe mai i costi di produzione. Sennò sarebbe bello se la Disney facesse dei lungomentraggi animati ispirati alle storie di un preciso paese Europeo! Sarebbe un progetto interessantissimo!

In teoria il dvd di "The Magic Gourd" è uscito anche negli states quindi perchè no? Mi preoccupa solo il fatto che il dvd, previsto all'inizio dell'anno anche da noi, non è più nella lista delle prossime uscite.

Torniamo a parlare un po' di questo film, a cui il New York Times dedica un articolo:

Prima Parte

Home of the Mouse Finds Box Office Success in the Land of the Bear

MOSCOW — They were all there on screen: Ivan and the mountain queen; Baba Yaga, the witch, who lives in a cottage perched on chicken feet; and even Kashchei the Immortal, who keeps his mortality locked in a goose’s egg.


Russia’s beloved folk characters are back in theaters some two decades after the Soviet collapse halted the country’s heavy production of fairy-tale films, appearing in a special-effects-infused rehabilitation of the tales told to Russian children for generations.

This new version, however, is told not by a Russian film studio but by the Walt Disney Company.

The movie — “Kniga Masterov,” or “The Book of Masters” — is Disney’s first attempt at a film specifically for a Russian-speaking audience. With a Russian cast and Russian writers, directors and producers, the film reflects a new reality at Disney and in Hollywood generally that dubbed American blockbusters are no longer enough to maintain a foothold in lucrative foreign markets. Some local flavor is now required.

In Russia, India, China, Latin America and elsewhere, Disney has been battling a host of Hollywood studios and local production companies for the hearts — and cash — of viewers, with an increasing array of entertainment produced in those markets. It released its first Chinese-language film, “The Secret of the Magic Gourd,” in 2007, and co-produced an animated film with a production house in India last year.

With “The Book of Masters,” Disney has sought to capitalize on a wave of nostalgia in an older generation as well as a renewed interest in Russian tradition and culture among the country’s youth. “Adults miss fairy tales of their childhood, and the younger generation simply is not familiar with the Russian folklore,” Vadim Sokolovsky, the film’s director, wrote in an e-mail message. “We wanted to bring back to the silver screen Baba Yaga and Kashchei, Bogatyr and the Mermaid, the Talking Horse and the smart Kolobok,” he said, referring to some of the film’s characters.

But filmmakers had to tread deftly. The Soviet Union churned out many fairy-tale-based films that have become classics. Russia’s greatest artists have incorporated fairy tales into plays and ballets, as well as poems that many Russians know by heart. And Disney, the home of Mickey Mouse and “The Pirates of the Caribbean,” had to be careful not to stoke anti-American sentiment here, and with it charges of cultural imperialism.

“We were definitely very, very cautious when we were telling the story,” said Marina Jigalova-Ozkan, the managing director of Disney’s operations in the former Soviet Union. She said her local staff “worked with our colleagues in Hollywood trying to make the story interesting and use all the Disney experience in telling the stories. But the whole movie is made by the Russian team.”

The formula, so far, appears to have worked. Ticket sales for “The Book of Masters” topped $10 million at the end of its second week, comparable to American-made Disney films here, Disney officials said. The film ranked No. 1 at Russian box offices in its first two weekends. The movie was released on Oct. 29 in 800 theaters across Russia, and dozens more in former Soviet countries.

Local movie productions have become even more important to Disney’s expansion strategy because its television efforts have been ensnared in Russian bureaucracy and restrictions on foreign media. Last year the company announced with fanfare that it had finally figured out a way to create a satellite Disney Channel — by partnering with a Russian broadcaster — but a government agency blocked the deal.

“The Book of Masters” is based loosely on the folklore of the Ural Mountains in central Russia. In the film Ivan, an orphan boy, must face off against the Stone Countess, who strives to claim dominion over the world, while her stone warriors, the Ardars, terrorize local villagers.

The film, a live-action adventure story aesthetically similar to recent productions like “The Chronicles of Narnia” series, is quintessentially Disney down to the inevitable happy ending — not always a given in Russian fairy tales (or in the sources of some of Disney’s best-known movies).



Seconda Parte

But “The Book of Masters” is not without local color. Ivan spends about as much time contending with the abuses of drunken bureaucrats as with the Stone Countess. And at one point he is tempted to give up his true love, Katya, in exchange for a large house on Rublyovka Road, also the name of the Moscow street where Russia’s leaders and oligarchs have their sprawling mansions. Ivan declines, choosing love over material wealth.

There was a time when Disney’s global prestige could rest on its American-made products, said Andrew Bird, chairman of Walt Disney International.

“We’ve found that as the world becomes more sophisticated, and consumers become more sophisticated, the need for people to stay in touch with their own local sensibilities is somewhat heightened as well,” he said.

That is not to say that American-made films are no longer popular. They still have the bulk of Russia’s market, though locally produced films are drawing an increasing share. Domestic films grew to 25 percent of the Russian market in 2008 from 4 percent at the start of the decade, Vladimir V. Putin, Russia’s prime minister, told a gathering of Russian filmmakers this month.

To remain competitive, Disney has expanded its operations in Russia, increasing its production staff from just a handful three years ago to nearly 200 today. Work has already begun on a new film, though Disney officials are not talking publicly about the details.

At a recent viewing of “The Book of Masters” at the large Pushkin Theater in Moscow, moviegoers applauded the finale. Even with the strong anti-American current here, many moviegoers seemed flattered by Disney’s attempt.

“It is nice that Disney took part in this because it shows that they are not simply interested in their culture across the ocean, but are branching into other regions,” Maxim Minyaichev, 22, said after watching the film.

Certainly, there have been plenty of complaints from critics: the special effects were too intrusive, a few scenes too syrupy and the filmmakers too concerned about avoiding ethnic stereotypes, some said. Lidia Maslova from the daily newspaper Kommersant wrote that the film was so dominated by Hollywood flash that it seemed as if the Russian filmmakers had been “forced to smuggle something contraband into a foreign commercial project to excite the soul of the ironic Soviet viewer.”

Many, however, applauded Disney for taking on a project not even local film companies had tried in 20 years.

“If we cannot make good films about Russian fairy tales, and they do it great, why can’t Disney do this?” said Daniil B. Dondurei, editor in chief of the film journal Iskusstvo Kino.

Still, Mr. Dondurei said he was amused at the thought of “Americans coming to us to help us break the spell on the secrets of Russia.”

Sarebbe meraviglioso se venisse distribuito anche da noi...Certo abbiamo più speranze degli Usa data la forte presenza di immigrati dall'Est! Speriamo, il film mi intriga tantissimo...Conosco veramente poco le fiabe e i miti Russi e Baba Yaga, quella vecchia strega dalla casetta che poggia su zampe di pollo e che se ne va in giro a bordo di un calderone a caccia di bambini è qualcosa che mi entusiasma a dire poco!! (non per l'aspetto pulp della cosa...poverelli...ma Hansel & Grethel è una fiaba a me tanto cara!)
L'articolo dice anche che la Disney sta lavorando a un secondo nuovo e segretissimo film...Speriamo che i Veu che tutto sanno ci sappiano presto dire qualcosa!!! thumb_yello.gif
