Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies. When relationship battles with legacy, it is not hard to imagine the value of both decreasing without the other.
I totally get that it looks like PIXAR is moving away from universally relatable stories and entering into more personalized ones. This means that their offerings will inevitably become more polarizing as far as how they land. For me, Turning Red didn't land--and that's completely fine. Not every movie has to be made for me.
