The Disney narrator tells us: “The story is not quite what you were told.” And that could not be more true, or more concerning. And if you detest movie spoilers, too bad. I am about to spoil the ending. And I hope you thank us for it. I hope you at least understand why:
As children, we learn about the clear distinction between good and evil. And that Bible verse in Isaiah that says “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter,” that’s for some future, distant time; not now. (Isaiah 5:20)
But as we know full well, the time is already upon us. And those of us with open eyes can see it plainly. But what about our children? They certainly aren’t of the age to discern these things. And that makes them ripe for the worst kind of subtle deception: the kind that juxtaposes good and evil.
It’s the kind of opportunity Disney has jumped on, sinking its claws deep into the hearts of our youngest.
