LINK: Disney Wanted to Make a Splash in China With ‘Mulan.’ It Stumbled Instead. – The New York Times




バンク・オブ・アメリカとのインタビューはスクリプトが全文公開されていまして、実際の発言はこちら。「この話はそれくらいに」は“And I would just leave it at that”。

Jessica Reif Ehrlich – Bank of America Merrill Lynch
And I think with markets such as China, there’s been some surrounding controversy this week

over Mulan. Do you expect that to have an impact on performance?

Christine McCarthy – Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, The Walt Disney Company
I don’t want to – I’m not a box-office predictor/prognosticator, but I will say that it has generated

a lot of publicity, let’s call it – let’s leave it at that.

But let me just put something into context. The fact that Mulan – the real issue – the real facts of Mulan is Mulan was primarily shot in almost the entirety in New Zealand. And in an effort to accurately depict some of the unique landscape and geography of the country of China for this historical period-piece drama, we filmed scenery in 20 different locations in China. Now it’s common knowledge that in order to film in China, you have to go – be granted permission. And that permission comes from the central government’s, I think it’s called, publicity department or something like that.

And it’s also common knowledge in the film industry that – and it’s a practice that is done throughout the world, to acknowledge in a film’s credits where – you acknowledge in the film’s credits the national and local governments that allowed you to film there. And so in our credits, that was recognized, both China as well as locations in New Zealand. And I would just leave it at that, but that’s generated a lot of issues for us.
