Ruining a classic with feminism

So I watched the Aladdin remake from Disney over the weekend. The production quality was very good, and most of the acting/script was reasonable; there were only a few parts I found cringe-worthy.

I think they made it into a movie that is unsuitable for children however. 1 Corinthians 15:33 says, “Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” It is important for parents to safeguard young children from immoral influences.
For example, I would never recommend the Disney movie, “Enchanted”, for children, or even adult women. The plot of this movie has a young woman accept a marriage proposal for one man. She then encounters a second man, and apparently falls in love with the second instead; by the end of the movie she makes the empowered decision to break her commitment to the first man, and marry the second.
And as an added bonus of disloyalty, this second man ditches the woman he had been pursuing when he met our heroine, so he could marry the first man’s fiance. And you thought Disney films were family-friendly.

This Aladdin remake had several spots promoting the feminist goals of female-leadership, at the national level. She wants to be the next Sultan (basically king). And by the end of the movie, she has of course become Sultan.

I thought they were also going to have her be the one to figure out how to get rid of the vizier. On this point I was wrong. I think this plot-point was saved by the remake’s adherence to the original movie’s plot line.

Sad thing is, with only about two minutes’ worth of script changes, I could agree this is a film worthy for their intended audience. Instead they chose to serve feminists. Not sure how many extra tickets they sold due to this choice. I think they ruined the film project however, for any parent that wants to raise their daughters to become good women, instead of attempting, and failing, to become good men.

  1. I saw that in a lot of casual fiction during the run-up to full wokeness. It’s like the author didn’t want the wokeness in the book but was required to slip in a little virtue-signaling in order to get published.

    The SJW’s fangs don’t really come out until they become the gatekeepers.

    1. That reminds me of the movie Eagle Eye. I liked the movie… except for the part where the main female character claims her former husband was a “bad man”, and the main male character just assumes she is telling the truth and adds his own trash-talk toward the other man.
      No only is this a likely straw-man situation, where the woman simply claims whatever evil behaviour for the man who is not there to defend himself. But this shows a bad example, where the listening man assumes the absent man is less than he is, and worthy of condemnation.

      Prov 18:17: The one who states his case first seems right,
      until the other comes and examines him.

      Matt 5:32: But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
