A new twist on Disney and their recurring theme of dead mothers and traumatized babies — this time its dead babies and traumatized mothers.
Bob and I saw (part of) the new Disney movie, “Earth”, tonight.
Typical Disney set-up of moms and babies in danger, you just know somebody’s gonna get killed because the music tells you so.
We walked out just as the baby elephant was being chewed up by a pack of lions. Lion hanging off the baby’s anus. Baby elephant screaming. Horrified young children cringing in the audience. (It wasn’t the first miserable death on screen, either.)
Yes, I know, nature is savage and wild, blah blah. But it also doesn’t have a deep-voiced male voice-over and emotional manipulation. And the wilderness isn’t touted as child-friendly entertainment.
When it comes around your way, save your money and your children’s sanity and rent Winged Migration.
