Extremely Uncomfortable Racial Politics (Atlantis: the Lost Empire)

Podcasts.com iTunes - Stitcher - Spotify


This week we take on our first ever piece of Western animation and Ian reveals that they know more about Disney than previously thought. A favorite from our childhood, we see if Disney's Atlantis holds up, has mechs, and also there's like a Confederate loyalist in this movie. We talk about stylistic differences between American and Japanese animation, storytelling, and influences. Finally, Ian goes on a prolonged rant about Disney's pathological aversion to risk.
