Editorial Reviews

Review

"Through the worldview perspective, this book comes to grips with the incongruous moralities in Disney. It enables both parents and educators to gain a critical understanding of Disney content without being judgmental or promotional for the wrong reasons.... Mouse Morality is a pleasure to read and discuss in itself, but shows the pathway to media criticism of the first order." - from the Foreword

Format: Paperback
It won't blow you away if you're well versed in Disney critique, but I found it to be illuminating and I found the section on Pocahontas quite useful in discussion of that movie. It serves as a good introductory guide to examining the messages and problems within Disney's cannon.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a relatively short academic work, with 135 pages of text, 16 pages of notes, a 20-page bibliography, and index. The author is Chair & Associate Professor of Communication Arts at Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL. She draws her conclusions from five Disney contemporary animated features: The Lion King, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, and Mulan, with a chapter on each. These are bookended by two additonal chapters: Disney, Film and Morality: A Beginning and A Disney Worldview: Mixed Moral Messages.
I found this a mostly ponderous read and didn't think it broke any new ground. There just wasn't much for me to get excited about.
