Animation Affectionados Blast Peter Pan

19 Mar

Mr Broke Hoedown just sent me this link: Blast that Peter Pan! From the article:

The Disney DVD folks have issued a new, 2-disc version of Walt’s animated Peter Pan. Here’s an Amazon link to purchase it and here’s why you might not want to. A number of animation websites (like this one) have erupted in discussion of the transfer which some say is not what it should be.

    though i am sure the discussion is out there (i’ve just been too busy to search and read it all), but where is the hew and cry out there (did i even nearly spell that right??? sheezz) about the ridiculous portrayal of native americans in this? i mean, i loooooooove tinkerbell (and tigerlilly – but the mermaids and wendy are kind of annoying), but they won’t even release “song of the south”?

    just wondering

    I couldn’t agree with you more — the portrayal of indigenous people in Peter Pan is truly absurd and undeniable. I ranted about it a bit when the new release came out, and I’m still pretty deeply irked.
