Have you seen Lion King in the theatre yet? What did you think?
I saw it tonight. The costumes were fantastic. Timon and the wart hog were the steal.
SaggyWoman you are so lucky to be able to see all these different plays. We have nothing close like this we can go to. But I have seen the cast on Rosie ODonnel several times, and have wanted to see this play.
It really looks exciting and always moving. I bet the costumes were brilliant.
I'm not much of a fan of most modern Disney - full of subtle (and not so subtle) messages and pc language.
Am I the only one who sees more "sinister" motives and pay no attention to:</font>
Pocahontas - rewrite American Indian history and worship of nature</font>
Aladdin - rewrite Arab history and make Islam look good</font>
Lion King - rewrite African history in symbolism through animals</font>
Know that some see a demon in Lady and the Tramp or Pinnochio, et al, but I am seeing a big swing in recent years . . .
I saw the Lion King when it was at the Pantages in Los Angeles. I liked it so much, I took my kids to see it. Thank God for Visa!!! I highly recommend it.
Dr Bob, I understand the concern, but don't think there's much to worry about. One could "point out" flaws in all the Disney movies, such as:
Snow White: rewrote the Grimm's fairy tale to the point it was almost unrecognizeable, glorify witchcraft, and gve a poor representation of people afflicted with dwarfism.
Cinderella: glorifies mysticism and communication with animals.
Toy Story: asserts the idea that toys are possessed and can move on their own.
The Little Mermaid: completely chops up the Hans Christian Anderson tale, fosters a belief in mythical creatures, encourages humans to not wear life vests.
Beauty and the Beast: Encourages women to believe that they can change men. Oh wait, they CAN do that!!!
