He gives me the card, the whole movie begins, “he explained.” [In the original script,] the child actually begins with “You just killed Santa.” And I said, “He should not have been on the roof when he was not invited.” “ Allen said he thought it was more cruel
“I’m laughing so hard, but the Disney boss at that time [Jeffrey] Katzenberg said,” Well, you can not start a movie like this. “And I said,” Why not “
Allen continued: “I’m going,” I’m a comedian. Why not? It’s funny. You kill all the parents in your other movies, anyway. “Is not it?”
