I watched Finding Nemo yesterday and was blown away by the animation. Pixar is producing amazing work. However the story and moral message of the film was lacking and I found it in line with all Disney’s other films.
For years Disney has been producing family oriented stories about the little kid finding his way in the big world, or the young girl finding her “prince charming” The morals are forced upon the audience and after a while we just accept them and think this is how things really are. Do they really care about young children? or do they just pander to the parents to sell movies and DVD’s. Allowing parents can plop their kids in front of the TV for hours and not have to teach their children about the real world issues.
There are so many things morally wrong with many of their classic films:
Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Snow White, Pochohontas.
