The story of the behind the scenes struggles around the production of Mary Poppins are being adapted into a feature film by Disney.
The film looks like the typical heart-wearming, psudeo tear jearking fair that studios release during the holiday season. I’d like to note that there’s no mention of Disney’s known anti-semetic inclinations. Man, wouldn’t it be wonderful if trailers for Bio Pic were actually honest?
Instead of showcasing swelling violins and smiling faces we could have a narator saying:
‘Brought to you by the massive corporate conglomerate that has a financial stake in your emotional attachment to a long dead figure head.’
“Don’t think about how Walt Disney was a bigot who refused to pay his employees, just wallow in childhood nostalgia’
I’d give anything to see that trailer. But since we can’t, check out the real one.
