Something I Didn’t Need To See

A brief follow-up to that atrocious Disneyland Paris advertising campaign for their new LION KING stage show. Inkan over at Animation Nation has posted a link to the live-action TV spot that features classic Disney characters climbing up onto the park’s architecture to escape the lions. Read what you want into the commercial, but I think it’s difficult to avoid the subtext of Mickey hanging on for dear life to a pole on top of a building, in a bid to escape THE LION KING, a creation of Eisner’s regime.
