Disney’s Sad Descent
The end of family friendly entertainment and trust.
By Michael Reagan

I cry to see what’s happened to Disney.

When I was growing up – and until not that long ago – you knew you could trust Disney to make entertaining movies you could take your entire family to see.

The Walt Disney Company became rich and powerful by being Hollywood’s most family-friendly corporation.

Its earliest string of animated movies, classics like “Pinocchio” and “Bambi” in the 1940s, are rated G by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

But most of the animated movies and features made these days by Disney and its subsidiary Pixar, including Pixar’s current release “Lightyear,” are not so 1950s wholesome.

They’re rated PG – Parental Guidance suggested.

In a PG-rated product the MPAA says some material “may not be suitable for children. Parents urged to give ‘parental guidance.’ May contain some material parents might not like for their young children.”

The MPAA doesn’t say whether the on-screen kiss between two gay cartoon women in “Lightyear” is something an unwoke parent or grandparent might not want to have to explain to a 6-year-old.

But the kiss – which has caused Disney a lot of grief and given “Lightyear” a lot of free publicity – has become the latest example of how corporate wokeism is spoiling our culture.

Conservatives pundits and many parents are complaining that “Lightyear,” which is the “origin story” of “Toy Story” character Buzz Lightyear, has been politicized by a cell of LGBTQ propagandists working at Disney.

The kissing scene was originally cut from “Lightyear” but was then reinstated after Disney and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had a feud over Florida’s “don’t say gay” bill, which banned public schools from discussing sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3.

It’s satisfying to see that Disney’s creepy propagandizing is causing it financial pain at the box office, here and overseas.

“Lightyear’s” opening weekend in the United States was a critical and financial bust for a movie that cost $200 million to make.

Because of the gay kiss, about 15 Muslim countries have banned it so far, and China – a major market for Disney – reportedly has asked Disney to cut the scene before allowing it into the country.

There’s lots of humor in Disney’s descent into blatant wokeism in its movies and at its theme parks.

For example, “Fox Across America” host Jimmy Failla tweeted that Disney should rename its Disneyland ride “Snow White and the Seven Genders.”

But mostly what has befallen Disney is terribly sad.

From “Pinocchio” all the way to Disneyworld, the Disney Channel and Disney+, the company Walt started was all about entertainment – G-rated family entertainment.

Now it’s also about pushing woke ideas on little kids and making many parents uncomfortable – or angry.

My granddaughters – age 4 and 6 – love going to these animated Disney/Pixar movies, but there’s no way my son Cameron is going to take them and have to explain in the middle of the movie what’s going on between the two women.

Once upon a time, when you went to a movie made by the Disney Company or watched its shows on TV you knew you were going to be able to escape the grim, sordid or politicized stuff polluting our society.

You knew you’d be able to laugh and enjoy the show for a couple hours.

And you knew that your kids were not going to be indoctrinated or confused by values and ideas about sex, politics and lifestyles that deliberately undermined yours.

It’s outrageous what is going on at Disney. I’m 77. I’ll be gone in the not too distant future, but what about my grandchildren?

Their parents shouldn’t be afraid to take them to a Disney movie or let them stream “Toy Story 12.”

We’ve already had six sci-fi movies from Hollywood based on the “Transformers” franchise. Will next year’s blockbuster be “The Transgenders”?

For my grandkids’ sake, I hope not.

I wonder what Walt Disney himself would have thought about all of this? From the quick search I did, it seems Mr. Disney was raised in and was a devout member of the Congregationalist Christian Church. I'd never heard of the Congregationalist Chrisitian Church, but it's described as being theologically somewhere between Presbyterianism and the Baptists and Quakers. If true, I don't think Mr. Disney would be happy with the woke direction the current crop of liberal lunatics running his company are taking it in.

Disney movies that have subliminal sexual images ingrained in them. In even some of the older movies. I wonder if they were in shows I saw as a kid, and just never picked up on them?
I think the answer to the last question appears to be "probably" as I did a search using "subliminal imaging in disney" which came up with some interesting vids and stories regarding that question, though disney had some explanations that could be plausible, and I say plausible because that is what satan has always used in his arguments eh!

I will always have a soft spot for Disney and we still allow the older stuff in our home but it was around the time Zootopia came out that we sort of cut it off. I actually like Zootopia as the overall message of anti-bigotry is a good one and the prejudices were flying in all directions on that one so it was hard to pinpoint who was who and who was the actual oppressors. I kind of know what they were intending but they were still afraid to make it super obvious. It is painful to give Disney up though. We went to Disney World for our honeymoon (actually my husband's idea, haha) I always loved stuff with Minnie Mouse on them...especially the original, classic design from way back when. But then the company gets money so I can't. I try to find stuff at thrift stores so they don't get my money. My kids don't fully understand why we won't take them to see the new Disney movies and I just say that they have gotten mixed up and want to teach kids things that God wouldn't like.

I remember when Walt would host the weekly Disney show on tv . The whole family always looked forward to it.
I remember that too! It was pretty wholesome. What ever happened to movies, and these are really old Disney movies, like “The Horse in the Grey Flannel Suit,” Thomasina,” etc.

Kurt Russell was one of the Disney kids, as were a lot of other stars.

None of that is popular anymore.

I grew up living close to Walt Disney World and have known lots of people that worked at the theme park. I had a friend who played Cinderella and she was an accomplished dancer. She told me most of the male cast members at the park were gay and this was 40 years ago!

It is sad you cannot trust your little ones to watch the Disney channel because of gay characters. You have to also be careful when watching the Hallmark Channel because they are inserting gay characters into their movies too.

In the early 1980's when I started getting the Disney channel on cable, there were a couple really good shows called The Edison Twins and Danger Bay. The first was about kids who used science to solve mysteries. The other was about a man with two kids who worked at the Vancouver Aquarium in B.C Canada. Wholesome shows.

I loved Thomasina. I also miss the family movies like that. So much now is cartoons or movies that seem to degrade family.

I loved Danger Bay!! I loved that it was about Canada. We never had any fancy channels but it was on the main Canadian channels up here. So good.

I watch another network now instead of Hallmark. GAC Family is ran by Bill Abbot who used to be the head honcho with Hallmark. He has signed on various actors/actresses who used to be with Hallmark. Very refreshing, in this day and age.

I've seen scenes and stills from Disney movies that have subliminal sexual images ingrained in them. In even some of the older movies. I wonder if they were in shows I saw as a kid, and just never picked up on them?
Those scenes have always been there, sadly. From what I understand, Mr. Disney was a pedophile, and also involved in Freemasonry. All his ideas for Disneyland, Disney movies, etc., are based around not only immorality, but sorcery as well... nothing Christian about any of it. I am sorry that so many folks are duped into thinking Disney is okay when it is not, like a wolf in sheep's clothing.

I have heard that too, but never knew what to believe.
