I watched Disney’s original Peter Pan with my family tonight, as we’ve instituted a Friday movie night for Henry.
Man, this is one racist, sexist movie. My wife and I were both cringing during the scenes with the Indians. And save for Mrs. Darling, I don’t think there’s a single girl in the story who isn’t trying to kill another girl over Peter — despite his not really giving a shit about any of them.
And now Hook seems even more ridiculous.
So strange Disney considered this happy kiddie fare. This shit is dark.
