Another Academic Study,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mouse Morality: The Rhetoric of Disney Animated Film (Paperback)
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.
