Disney's Cinderella Movie: Children & Parents Beware


March, 2015



In the new Disney movie Cinderella, Cinderella tolerates and submits to the cruel abuse of her controlling wicked stepmother because she is "tolerantly kind". In the end, she forgives her for the cruelty.

Lesson? Being kind and good means tolerating and forgiving the evil, cruelty and abuse of those who control us. Watch The Zion King and learn otherwise.

It is no coincidence that the Disney movie-makers of Cinderella introduce a scene identical to a scene from the award winning royal propaganda movie "The Queen". Cinderella, like the Queen, chases away a stag that hunters are about to kill.

Subliminal Message? At a subconscoius level, viewers of both movies are programmed to associate "kind" and "courageous" with the Queen, like Cinderella. (Watch The Zion King and learn otherwise)


The Cinderella movie features green skinned shape-shifting lizzards (good guys, of course) and a cat named Lucifer. "Two pillars" often appear in the background symbolizing freemasonry. Walt Disney was a 33rd degree Freemason.

To many Disney fans, Disney is synonymous with innocent morality stories and fluffy rodents singing songs of hope and joy. But many of the supposedly innocent messages, on closer examination reveal otherwise. There is no doubt that Disney movies have brought happiness to millions, if not billions of children around the world...but pay attention to what lurks within them.

The Cinderella movie ends with commoner Cinderella (like Kate) marrying the Prince who becomes KING (like William).

Like Kate and William, the handsome and beautiful, kind and couragous Cinderella and her King stand on the balcony of the palace and wave to the multitude of commoners. All of their subjects live happily ever under their rule.

Predictive Message: By association, the movie programs in viewers the prediction that William will be King and the royal couple will rule with courage and kindness. Watch The Zion King and learn otherwise.

Here are some of the harrowing themes present in Disney movies, which affect you and your children more than you know.

Historical Inaccuracies

Few Disney films are based on real events. “Pocahontas” falsifies America's history of Native American genocide with a story of a native woman falling in love with white settler John Smith. In reality Pocahontas was only 10 years old which makes Smith a paedophile. There was no romance. The film’s false ending shows settlers becoming friends with the natives and everyone lives happily ever after.

In fact, 90% of the indigenous people in America were wiped out by disease and genocide by settlers. Those who survived had poor living conditions and were subservient to the land-grabbing Europeans, who subsequently became Americans.

Extreme Thinness

The size-zero look is replicated by every single Disney princess in cinema, with the exception of Snow White, perhaps because in the 1930s, ideals of beauty were different from now. It’s not just that women are portrayed as slender to increase their attractiveness; the level of exaggeration (for example in the impossibly lean waist of Megara from “Hercules”) is staggering to the point absurdity. Many critics, particularly feminists, have blasted Disney over this portrayal of women, claiming that the images have inspired anorexia and eating disorders in young women.

Subliminal Messaging

Disney has a track record of slipping bizarre messages into their films, mostly in the form of hidden images, but also sometimes through sound. For those who don’t know, subliminal messaging refers to images or sounds that pass by so fast that only your subconscious picks them up. The most notable case was announced by Disney itself on a home video copy of “The Rescuers”; as two mice ride in a sardine tin, a photograph of a topless woman can be seen in a window for several frames. Disney were quick to lay the blame on editors for planting the image as a joke (of course), and recalled all copies of the film.

In the new movie, Cinderella, the mice in the movie are mounting each other. Subliminals are found typically in the clouds and clothing.



Sexual Harassment is Acceptable

A recurring theme for Disney princess films involves a beautiful woman being awakened by an unapproved kiss on the lips though better than the rape found in the original Sleeping Beauty). In both Snow White and Sleeping Beauty, however, the women tend not to take the harassment too badly; in fact both characters marry them after their rude awakenings.

Importance of Social Status

Disney heroes and villains are almost always high in the social hierarchy when compared to others. The plot structure of “Cinderella” revolves around a woman who manages to escape her terrible living conditions simply by marrying a wealthy man.  Her success is down to her attractiveness in comparison to her hideous stepsisters. This sense of entitlement amongst central characters is consistent in almost every Disney film. So-called “Prince Charming” characters are so valued for their wealth and power that they can get away with basically anything. Imagine a reversal of the roles: replace Prince Phillip from “Sleeping Beauty” with Philoctetes, a minor socially-inferior character from “Hercules”.  I wager most women would wake up to a kiss from Philoctetes screaming “Rape!” at the top of their voices, rather than “Let’s get married!”

Ugliness is Immoral

In almost every Disney movie the primary antagonist is portrayed as physically unattractive, encouraging children to associate this character trait with evil. Female characters are particularly subjected to this treatment, all having at least one of the “Big Three” of Disney villain characteristics: being fat (Ursula in “The Little Mermaid”), old (The Old Woman in “Snow White”) or hideously ugly (The Ugly Stepsisters in “Cinderella”). The bottom line is that Disney openly preaches that attractiveness is synonymous with both morality and happiness. Disney villains are often portrayed as insecure about their appearance, which then causes them to take it out on younger, slimmer, better-looking characters. For example the villain of “Snow White” is obsessed with being the “fairest of them all”, and the ugly stepsisters bully and abuse innocent beautiful Cinderella.

Beauty is Moral

The film “Beauty and the Beast” works on the pretence of  “looks don’t matter”. However a closer look at the plot structure reveals this as a false front.  In the climax of the film the beast transforms back into a handsome human form, thus allowing him to live happily ever after with the equally attractive Belle. This totally contradicts the film’s supposed message of “looks don’t matter”, because if that were true, why is the transformation needed? “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” also does this with the main character being physically deformed. However, the message is again twisted when a new handsome character in the form of Captain Phoebus is introduced to marry Esmerelda instead of the protagonist, who of course is not worthy of her because of his ugliness.

Satanic Imagery

Disney uses subtle themes of Satanism in their films. For example, the beast of “Beauty and the Beast” is portrayed as a horned creature with fangs, resembling a traditional image of Lucifer.

Philoctetes in “Hercules” is also displayed in this form, with horns and cloven-feet. The most bizarre is Disney’s adaptation of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”. Eight-year-old Lucy’s meeting with Mr Tumnus involves the theme of paeodophilia: The stranger (with goat legs and horns) persuades Lucy to visit his home before putting her to sleep playing his flute. The next thing we know, Lucy wakes to find Mr Tumnus crying and saying that he has “done something very bad”. The sequence represents the consequences of children trusting strangers.

Racial Stereotypes

Overall the most blatant and unambiguous message that Disney teaches any child is how to discriminate between races. The crows in “Dumbo”, released in 1941 when racism against African Americans was more acceptable, is probably the most blatant example. The language and attire of the birds are clearly intended to mock African Americans. The characters exist only to help the white protagonist, and contribute mainly comedic value amongst white audiences, adding insult to injury on the already glaring stereotype.

Another example is the Chinese cat from “The Aristocats”, who sings about fortune cookies (invented in America incidentally) with an almost unintelligibly Asian accent. Disney has been blasted time and again for racism and yet it continues to perpetuate glaring stereotypes.
