RE-HIRE JAMES GUNN
I'm smart enough to know this most likely won't change anything but hopefully, this could get Disney to realize the mistake they made and not do it again in the future. I agree on the point that if people say a bunch of stupid shit while working for a studio, the studio has full right to fire him over the possible controversy. This situation is very different though as he made these jokes years before he was working for Disney and also the fact that they were jokes. I agree with most, including Gunn himself that the jokes were shitty and un-funny but they were still jokes, it wasn't an opinion or a statement, it was just a bad attempt at being funny. The other thing is if you do this to Gunn you have to do it for all the other directors who have said some crappy joke sometime in their life, which is all of them, cause I doubt there's one human on this planet who hasn't made a shitty joke once or twice in there life. If Marvel would come to their senses and re-hire Gunn that would be great but if all we can do is have proof by your signatures that Disney made a mistake i would still count that as a win. Thanks
Bring the Old Republic era of Star Wars to Netflix
It's no surprise to anyone that the Star Wars franchise has experienced a massive resurgence lately, with The Force Awakens released last year and this year with the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, it's about time that the stories from over 3,000 years before the Battle of Yavin be told to both new and old fans of the franchise. The Knights of the Republic series of games as well as the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic serve as the main vehicles to tell stories of characters such as Darth Revan, Darth Malak, Bastila Shan, Darth Traya, Meetra Surik, Darth Malgus, Satele Shan, and the list goes on. The popularity of this era in Star Wars history is felt throughout the fanbase, and I feel it would do a massive disservice to us if these stories weren't told. Why Netflix was chosen was because of the wealth of great content they have produced over the years, such as Narcos, House of Cards, and especially everything that Marvel has done and is still currently working on. Not only that, but Netflix can serve as a platform to tell these stories as they were meant to be portrayed: dark, foreboding, and a touch on the mature side. This can also give us fans our healthy dose of Star Wars while we're waiting on the new movies or the new season of Star Wars Rebels. The Old Republic era is a pivotal point in the Star Wars timeline because that's where everything changed, from the Jedi Civil War and the fall of Revan, the First Jedi Purge, and an omnipresent darkness that not only watched the chaos from afar but also kick-started the downfall. Our fanbase would love to see this on Netflix, and I feel that you would enjoy creating and adapting these stories as much as we would enjoy watching them.
Bring back Daredevil! #SaveDaredevil!
This petition is now working in cooperation with http://www.savedaredevil.com For the owner of petition you can contact him @spacelobgaming on Twitter. Marvel’s Daredevil has been canceled after a critically acclaimed third season, in what appears to be a one-sided move by Netflix. Despite the show’s success, Netflix has concluded that going ahead with an already planned-out fourth season does not serve their long-term business interests. As dedicated fans and savvy consumers of genre entertainment, we are convinced that Marvel’s Daredevil has great value, and, as dedicated consumers, we represent value to any media outlet that might want to continue the journey for these characters and their cast. Our wishes are that Marvel Television, and its parent company Disney, reach a deal with Netflix that allows the show, in its current format and with its current cast and crew, to continue on a different platform as soon as possible. According to the scant information available, the characters from Daredevil and the other Netflix shows are barred from use elsewhere for a time period of two years post-cancellation. Ideally, a deal can be made that allows Disney to take over the streaming rights of existing season and continue production uninterrupted. However, fans are willing to wait the two years if doing so allows Disney to continue production on another platform, such as its soon to be majority-owned Hulu service or any other service that is willing to be the hero of this story. If you want to do even more beyond signing this petition, follow @RenewDaredevil on Twitter or check out http://www.savedaredevil.com which will be updated with actionable tasks all Daredevil fans can take to make sure our voices remain heard!
Disney robs Swahili of “Hakuna Matata”
English / German ProblemDisney has trademarked the Swahili phrase “Hakuna Matata”. Join us and say NO to DISNEY or any corporations/individuals looking to trademark languages, terms or phrases they didn't invent. "Hakuna matata" is a Swahili language phrase from East Africa; translate, it means "no trouble". The word "hakuna" means "there is not here" while "matata" means "problems". Hakuna Matata has been used by most Kiswahili-speaking countries such as Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Mozambique, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.Disney can't be allowed to trademark something that it didn't invent. While we respect Disney as an entertainment institution responsible for creating many of our childhood memories, the decision to trademark ‘Hakuna Matata’ is predicated purely on greed and is an insult not only the spirit of the Swahili people but also, Africa as a whole. The movie is set in Africa and the characters have African names which further makes the decision to implement the trademark a perplexing one. The term ‘Hakuna Matata’ is not a Disney creation hence not an infringement on intellectual or creative property, but an assault on the Swahili people and Africa as a whole. It sets a terrible precedence and sullies the very spirit of the term to begin with. At a time when divisiveness has taken over the world, one would think re-releasing a movie that celebrates the unlikely friendships, acceptance, and unity, Disney would make a decision that goes completely against these values.SolutionSign this petition and get Disney to remove the trademark on Hakuna Matata
Make Leia an official Disney princess
After the tragic loss of Carrie Fisher, we feel that it is only fitting for Disney to do away with the rule that an official Disney princess must be animated and make Leia a full-fledged princess. This would be a wonderful way to remember Carrie and a welcoming to one of Disney's new properties that is beloved by millions. What we are asking is that the Walt Disney Corporation hold a full ceremony inducting Leia as the newest Disney princess as well as a special service in memory of Carrie Fisher. Art credit J.L.

Let Club Penguin Rewritten keep it's domain name
On October 10, 2017 Disney Interactive has filled a complaint against Club Penguin Rewritten and it's services. Club Penguin Rewritten is an educational re-creation of Disney's now defunct online game Club Penguin, it was created by teenagers which are under 18 of age and who wish to learn how to manage a game and be successful in tomorrow's business. Since it's launch in February, Club Penguin Rewritten has taught thousands of children skills, including, but not limited to, how to manage money, how to socialize safely online, and how to look after a pet. Disney, however, does not seem to like this and has filled an UDRP complaint, which effectively ceases Club Penguin Rewritten and it's services, even though the original game is defunct. Please sign this petition to support Club Penguin Rewritten and it's attempts.
Save Agent Carter, bring her to NETFLIX
https://www.change.org/p/marvel-the-fans-want-more-agent-carter Agent Carter connects many people around the world and has a united and devoted fanbase. Everyone especially loves Agent Peggy Carter herself; for her sense of self-value, for not needing anyone’s approval, for her toughness, and her spirit. The show is loved for being a high-quality production from its set design and costuming to its well-written, fully-realized characters and excellent cast. The series may have been canceled - but we can bring it to NETFLIX!
Free the Disney Dolphins
• In the wild, dolphins can travel from 40 to 80 miles a day, using echolocation and sonar which they rely upon as acoustic creatures. • In captivity, they are confined to barren concrete tanks where they are forced to perform circus tricks for the paying public. They are unable to use echolocation- as the sound waves ricocheting off of the tanks walls create stressful confusion for these animals- in some cases causing them to go literally insane. • In the wild, they hunt live fish, and have a natural diet. • In captivity, they are hand-fed dead fish and are routinely given various medications to prevent serious ailments- such as stomach ulcers -which are a result of the stress in captivity. Four male dolphins are currently being held at Disney World’s Epcot Park. They live in a dark and murky pool surrounded by observation windows lined with people, screaming children, loud music, amplified voices and other stressful sounds. They are literally treated as a ‘side-show’, and there is little to no information released publicly about them. Disney claims that these dolphins are involved in ‘research programs’ at their park, but by simply visiting Epcot, it quickly becomes clear that there seems to be no educational or conservation outcome from these ‘programs’. These dolphins do NOT belong at a noisy, crowed theme park- living in an artificial indoor facility with little to no exposure to natural sunlight- they belong in their natural habitat- THE OCEAN. Tell Disney to do the right thing- PLEASE RELEASE THESE DOLPHINS TO SEAPENS FOR REHABILITATION. If Disney truly wishes to contribute to environmental research and help educate the public about these animals, they will make the humane choice and release these animals to sea-pens- allowing them to live in their natural habitat- the ocean -and receive rehabilitation. We’re flooding Disney with letters, pressuring them to release their dolphins- join us! By signing the petition, you are helping these dolphins get closer and closer to real freedom!

Causa legale contro la "signora" con la maglia Auschwitzland a Predappio
Vogliamo portare a conoscenza di "The Walt Disney Company" che la signora Selene Ticchi d'Urso, ha creato ed indossato durante una manifestazione a Predappio un'assurda maglietta con su scritto "Auschwitzland", a schernimento completo di oltre 12 milioni di esseri umani eliminati nei campi di concentramento. La maglia mostra senza autorizzazione il logo Disney associando il famoso parco giochi ad un genocidio nazista, causando un danno d'immagine e di reputazione, oltre che un'offesa a tutto il genere umano.Chiediamo a "The Walt Disney Company" di prendere provvedimenti e di avviare una causa legale nei confronti della signora, visti i risvolti mediatici che la vicenda sta assumendo.Se volete aiutarci potete firmare la petizione perché questi gesti vanno condannati e puniti.
Have all future Marvel movies add "In loving memory of Stan Lee" at the end of each movie
Simply put, in honor of Stan Lee and his great contribution to the world in the form of many Marvel related creations I would like to help commemorate a great man who made the world a better place.I can personally say that as a kid growing up I found a lot of comfort and entertainment in characters that he made. Amazing Spider Man Vol 1 33 "The Final Chapter" is to this day a personal favorite and I can't even begin to express how much his creations effected me and made me the man I am today. This is a pleading request to the higher ups at Marvel to add even just a small sentence to their future films to help us all remember his incredible work.
