    Are the producers unaware that He-Man is supposed to be a grownup?

    They could always go with the gay subtext as well...

    I had a similarly old edition... it wasn't just the shoes, but that that bit of info was tacked on seemingly as an afterthought of the narrator.

    Complaining about the mermaid in an animated Disney movie is probably the most beta soy boy cuck thing I've ever fucking heard of

    Those dudes need to hand in their man cards

    I'm still waiting for a proper version of Pinnochio, not a retelling of that sanitized PG garbage that Disney did in 1940s. In fact, if you think about it, Disney has NEVER done a proper book adaptation in any of their "classic" movies. So what difference does it make at this point?

    Exactly.

    So why the outrage over a black girl in the lead? I didn't hear much hissing over Emma Watson's shitty ass singing voice or the fact that she refused to wear a period-appropriate corset for the ballroom scene of BatB so the racists can shove it.

    The Spiderman universe didn't collapse with Zendaya played definitely-not-redheaded Mary Jane (*glares at several different WFers*) so we'll all be fine here.

    Speaking of which (no pun intended), the original version of Grimm's Fairy Tales is now available in English! These are the gory, uncensored versions (at least compared to later ones) of the tales.
