Are You Aware Of Modern Social Issues Inserted In Classic Disney Movies’s Story Lines And Plots?

Cartoons are not only for children and there are a lot of profound values behind these animated movies. Talented directors often subtly insert lessons or social realities they want to convey into their films and that makes the audiences feel excited. However, trying to find out the values that the movies convey is pretty common nowadays. How about exploring the messages that this talented artist wants to express through classic cartoon scenes?

Tom Ward, a talented American artist, has a lot of thoughts about the state of our modernized society and he decides to infuse them into his artworks by redrawing classic Disney scenes. Have you ever thought of the real reason why Ariel can’t continue living in the ocean? It may be because her ocean is extremely destroyed by the toxic waste that no marine animals can live here anymore. Immediately after being published, his works have received a great response from everyone and several assumptions about the real meanings of his pictures have been discussed. Using classic cartoon scenes to describe social issues is a genius idea, isn’t it?

Let’s discover the truth behind these seemingly children’s pictures and you will definitely be surprised by their profound message!
