Fans get new shows, but who profits? #DisneyMustPay demands fairness for Alan Dean Foster — and a ConFurence founder remembers him as guest of honor.

I almost forgot my own report about Alan Dean Foster, the accomplished science fiction author who is being cheated by Disney.
It was buried by news about shows and movies with extra furry appeal. Irish animated feature WolfWalkers is just out for streaming. There are deaths to remember: Thomas “Tiny” Lister (voice actor in Zootopia) and Richard Corben (comics artist whose ROWLF was pitched for a furry feature by Hayao Miyazaki.) There’s announcements from Disney and Pixar — an animated TV series, and a feature of incredible furrybait.
Excited to see something once enjoyed by a niche community now getting more mainstream features. This year really was a big year for transformation media between Animal Crackers, BNA, Animorphs & Beast Boy graphic novel adaptions even a fursuit TF anime.
