Disney through a postcolonial lens

This is just an entertaining post looking at some classic Disney productions that come under criticism for their cultural stereotyping. In lieu of the popularity of our Disney example in the postcolonialism lecture, I thought I would share this with you all so that you could have a further think about the ways in which out lives are structured by stereotypes in something as apparently innocuous(?) as a Disney film. You may also like to think about the regular consumers of Disney films- young children- and how these culturally biased representations are normalised and passed onto them.
