The Honest Disney Movies Series Says It How It Really Is

The Honest Disney Movies series puts these classic plots into perspective. As romantic and innocent-looking as they are to the forgiving eye, the story lines and characters can be considered relatively offensive if broken down in a certain way. For instance, 'Beauty and the Beast' has been renamed 'Stockholm Syndrome: It's a tale as old as time' while 'The Little Mermaid' has been retitled to 'Change for Your Man.'

As essential as these animated films may be for many, the Honest Disney Movies series shows that "beneath the saccharine surfaces of these fluffy romances lies some truly disturbing content," as aptly put by The FW. This disturbing content was brought to light by creative souls Christine Gritmon and Nick Nadel.
