"Booker (English, U. of Arkansas, Fayetteville) examines dozens of films from Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks, and other studios, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) to Up (2009), in an analysis of the underlying political and cultural messages of children's films. Contrary to claims that some children's films teach anti-American ideas, he finds that the vast majority tend to support mainstream American values, such as individualism, family, and capitalism. The text contains an alphabetical list of all films cited in the text, including the name of the film, the director, and year of release." - Reference & Research Book NewsReseña del editor:
Disney, Pixar, and the Hidden Messages of Children's Films provides wide-ranging scrutiny of one of the most lucrative American entertainment genres. Beyond entertaining children-and parents-and ringing up merchandise sales, are these films attempting to shape the political views of young viewers? M. Keith Booker examines this question with a close reading of dozens of films from Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, and other studios, debunking some out-there claims-The Ant Bully communist propaganda?-while seriously considering the political content of each film. Disney, Pixar, and the Hidden Messages of Children's Films recaps the entire history of movies for young viewers-from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to this year's UP-then focuses on the extraordinary output of children's films in the last two decades. What Booker finds is that by and large, their lessons are decidedly, comfortably mainstream and any political subtext more often than not is inadvertent. Booker also offers some advice to parents for helping children read films in a more sophisticated way.
