Unhappily Ever After
I've encountered a blog posting images of Walt Disney heroes/main characters, transposed in reality. It is incredibly well done, and proves to be quite enlightening. Be it by the fact that you're forced to face reality as it is, and have to acknowledge the oh so far from reality imagination that the Disney movies show to children. I have to say that it makes you reflect upon the things that these children movies really teach youngsters about, well, everything. Is this notion of fairytale really the best way to raise our children, when we know we're tricking them into believing that their lives will resemble that of their favourite movie characters? How is it good for children to believe that there is always a happy ending waiting for them somewhere, no matter what you do or who you are? Anyway, I feel like these pictures make up for the fairytale illusions communicated in the Disneys in a way that doesn't crush all hopes, but rather connects the fairytale story we love so much with the real life events to which we can actually actively contribute helping. I'll let you see for yourselves a few samples, and am giving you the link to the blog:
Have a great day, and keep your mind sharp!
P.S: I wrote an article, about two months ago about "the hidden meanings in kids' movies" if you're interested by this topic: http://thepowerofreality.blogspot.be/2014/04/the-hidden-meanings-in-kids-movies.html
