Disney is Really Piling Up the Bodies With All the Death in Their Movies!

Man in the hood

I know I’m late to the party, but I just go the chance to go see Big Hero 6 yesterday at the theater. I really liked it, the story was good, the lighting and graphics were freaking unbelievable and, of course, how could I not love Baymax? According to Free Beer and Hot Wings, that’s me!

But something happened sort of early in the movie that reminded me of Disney’s love for killing people off. Pretty much every Disney movie has a scene where they kill off someone good. Bambi’s mom, the brother, the father, the mother, the sister, the wife, the husband…someone has to die for the story to get rolling.

Heck even people have to die sometimes to wrap up the movie!

This one kicks off with the parents already dead, and then BAM, they kill the brother!

Oh, sorry, spoiler alert.

How many people has Disney killed off over the years…no, decades they’ve been making these movies for kids?

THOUSANDS! Seriously. Thousands. If only because of scenes in some of them where entire armies have been wiped out by avalanches and such.

And look at some of the brutal ways they’ve killed people:

  • Snow White – Evil Queen – struck by lightning, falls off a cliff, crushed by boulder.
  • Beauty and the Beast – Gaston – falls off a cliff. Another character crushed by a wardrobe
  • Sleeping Beauty/Hunchback of Notre Dame – stabbed in the heart, cast into a fiery pit.
  • Who Framed Roger Rabbit – acid baths, crushing.
  • Mulan – avalanche kills army, and a guy gets a rocket to the chest.
  • Lion King – Mauled, trampled, eaten alive.
  • A Bug’s Life – more characters eaten alive.
  • And who could forget the saddest eight minutes in movie history – the beginning of Up?

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind a bit of wanton violence in my cinema, but these are supposed to be kids’ movies!

Maybe it’s educational, teaches them hard life lessons.

See more Disney violence at The Loop!
