Disney: Stealing the Death Virginity of Another Generation

August 24, 2012

The first time death became real for me was when I watched Bambi’s mother die.  I still remember it like it was yesterday.  And yes, I cried.

I cried when Mufasa died.

And Disney’s “Old Yeller” messed me up for like a month.

Yup.  Disney pretty much took away my death virginity.

In fact, Disney has effectively taken away the death virginity of multiple generations.  And they do it so subtly too.  One minute you are watching a movie that has been made for you.  Life is good.  Cartoons are dancing across your TV screen, singing happy songs about the circle of life and the whole time it’s a set up.  A set up to pull you in and steal away your virginity.

Now, they are stealing away the death virginity of a new generation with their “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.”

I have to admit that when I saw the trailer for “The Odd Life of Timothy Green”, I didn’t want to see it.  Not because it looking poorly written or poorly produced, but because of the emotional nature of the story: A couple who can’t have kids miraculously finds a boy named “Timothy Green”.  I’ve grown wise to that cunning Walt Disney.

After watching the video below (spoiler alert), I’m pretty certain I will shield my tender soul from this movie.

Watch as Disney steals the death virginity from these unsuspecting children.
