Background

Walt Disney Productions' film The Black Hole (1979), a science fiction film that sparked controversy due to the fact that it was the first Disney production to receive a PG rating (the company, however, had already distributed its first PG-rated film, Take Down— without the Disney name visible —almost a year before the release of The Black Hole.) Over the next few years, Disney experimented with more PG-rated fare, such as the 1981 film Condorman, 1982's Tron and 1983's Never Cry Wolf and Trenchcoat. The latter film attracted major criticism for including adult themes that were considered inappropriate for a Disney film.[1] The controversy over Trenchcoat is generally considered the catalyst that later sparked the creation of Touchstone Pictures. One title considered for the new company was "Hyperion Pictures," named after the location of the studio in the 1930s before the move to Burbank. Eventually, Hyperion would become the name of Disney's publishing arm.
