I continue my slow crawl
Author, in terms of the total story, how long will it be? Where are we? 25%, 50%, 75%, other?
Huh…interestingly enough, this does feel a whole lot like the start of the story of Pocahontas. Let’s see whether it will continue the same.
However, chances are, that it will not.
Disney’s Pocahontas, that is. The real story is way worse.
As it is with most stories, Disney laid their hands on.
I mean, the original Genie from Arabian mythology grants your wishes, sure…but he does it much the same way the Monkey’s Paw does. There’s always a price to pay.
Same for the little mermaid or the jungle book.
I once heard a story, when the creative heads at Disney came together to talk about the movie they were going to make, when ol’ Walt himself came in and asked: ‘Did anyone actually read the book?’
Lots of embarrassed faces, however the real punchline’s yet to come.
Supposedly Walt said: ‘Alright, do me a favor and don’t start. Let’s make a happy movie instead.’
And what to say, they sure pulled through with the theme.
But yeah, I was talking about Disney’s Pocahontas.
