The villain confused me but in relation to behind the scenes of what happened in the DC Vertigo Fables comic book series.
Supposedly, the original evil villain in the comic series about literary characters existing in the real world is Peter Pan, who never grew up and became a tyrant. The... Barrie estate or the family of the writer of Peter Pan refused to make him a villain. So the comic had to change the main enemy to Gepetto from Pinocchio, who was creating new life from wood etc etc .
etc etc .
Sooo, if the Barrie estate still won't allow Peter Pan to be a villain, maybe Disney could do it because of the ... Whatever it is that happened with Winnie the Pooh, where Disney has the rights to the red shirt likeness Pooh bear, even though everything else is fair game or something.
Soooo maybe the bootlegging and copying thing is a meta reference too? If it is, that's wild.
Peter Pan was also a thoroughly evil villain in the ABC drama series Once Upon a Time, so there's probably some leeway on what Disney and/or its subsidiaries can do with him.
