Disney imaginary Jim Shull took to Twitter to share his thoughts on a controversy surrounding Snow White’s enchanted dream.
Since the Anaheim theme park reopened at the end of April, there has been a significant reaction to a ‘non-consensual kiss’ depicted on its renovation White as snow attraction, between the characters of Prince Charming and Snow White.
Shull’s Tweet was attached to a screenshot from Fox News, in which a headline read: “Cancel Target Crop Snow White.”
“Considering the fact that cultural shifts occur over decades, it has to be recognized that in the context of the tale on which the film is based, the turn is exact,” wrote Shull, who has worked for Disney for more than three years. decades. “People are of course allowed to dislike the story, but the Imagineering team did a spectacular job!”
The updated tour comes to an end with Prince Charming giving Snow White the ‘kiss of true love’ – as seen in the 1937 animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs– so that she can wake up from her eternal sleep, following her poisoning by the evil queen.
The social media fury during the race came on the heels of a SFGATE piece published May 1 by theme park critics Katie Dowd and Julie Tremaine. In it, they suggested that the ride should be updated, with an ending befitting a contemporary audience.
Disneyland is currently open at 25% of its capacity. At this time, the park is only accessible to California residents.
