    Have you noticed that their idea of inclusivity doesn’t ever seem to mention those that are larger in stature or those with disabilities?

    So much for being inclusive.

      THANK YOU CHRIS!!! I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed that. I understand Disney wants to be more inclusive but I’m annoyed that they are starting to break character integrity by changing the looks of some of the characters for the remakes i.e. Ariel in the upcoming Little Mermaid remake. Inclusion is one thing but don’t destroy the characters we all know and love.

      Really?!?!?

      Physical disability:
      – Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
      – Nemo from Finding Nemo

      Psychological conditions:
      – Dory from Finding Dory
      – Every character in Alice in Wonderland

      There must be other examples… Pretgy much all Disney characters have underlying issues, whether psychological or sociological. Which character is defined as ‘normal’? Rapunzel, Elsa, Aladdin, Gaston… seriously. They’ve all got issues.

      And speaking of being inclusive: technically, wouldn’t Ariel be trans? A human trapped in the body of a mermaid… Hope Disney acknowledge that detail in the new film to be truly inclusive. 🏳️‍⚧️

    While I applaud all the work that’s going into making things appear more inclusive, everyone should have the right to live as they want without fear of attack, and to have 50% of ‘under-represented’ people included on screen, again great, but they have to make sure that the representation is realistic too and not forced and a blatant box-ticking exercise.

    If Splash Mountain is so racially insensitive and Disney is so conscientious, WHY is it still open? Should it not have been immediately closed to prevent damaging countless more impressionable minds?

    Bla, bla, bla, same old crap, different day. Who cares about all of Disney’s WOKENESS! Ignore it and move on. Lol 🤭

    I feel, Disney’s plans are over the top, it’s too much. They are making such a big deal about all thus. I say, just do it, quietly, do it slowly and do it Right…without all the fanfare.
    Now Disney is acting Like the generation that needs the Trophy. They need the attention, the acknowledgement, the trophy reward.
    And with all this “inclusiveness”, Disney is forgetting their Long Time fan base, their loyal customer, their supporters. Making “us” feel that we don’t matter. There us a fine line to inclusiveness, and Disney is staring to cross it

    This was NEVER Walt Disney’s intentions. He wanted a family themed park, hence why everyone basically looked the same in uniform, no dyed hair, no jewelry (only a wedding ring and a watch); for men no hair on the neck and no earrings; women could wear studded earrings no bigger than a penny. No one was allowed to make a political nor religious statement with their clothes.
    A woke Disney is a horrible terrible thing that has happened.
    Time for Disney to go back to basics.
