In an effort to provide family entertainment, Disney has spent years stretching the truth, presenting false versions of history, and filling children’s minds with facts that are just not true. Disney must be used to the criticism now – they’ve been dealing with editorials and grievances for years. Looking back at films like Pocahontas, Hercules, Mulan, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, it’s obvious that they took some liberties with history in an effort to tell a more compelling story.
Even as Disney deals with all of the fact-checkers and critics, they continue to make the same mistakes. Both Disney and Pixar have created all types of films that present lies upon lies. History is changed, facts are just wrong, and characters find themselves doing the impossible. It may be hard to fathom, but beloved Disney characters like Dory, Nemo, Rapunzel, Lightning McQueen, and Moana may all be considered liars. Scientists, researchers, and historians have gone deep into research on a variety of Disney hits to showcase what is wrong about them. This includes both traditional Disney movies like The Princess & The Frog and some of the Pixar releases like The Good Dinosaur. Watch and see if you noticed any of these lies, false statements, or things that didn’t just feel right. Some of them are merely small moments while others may take you completely away from the story.
