So I’m watching the Disney Channel movie, Wish Upon A Star, on YouTube right now and it’s amazing how much Disney channel has gotten so much more censored over the years. This movie came out a little over a decade ago in 1996 and features full on make out scenes, scantily clad outfits, and even the dirty dirty while nowadays it’s rare to even see a peck on the cheek. They certainly didn’t cuss, but I did hear a “What the hell?” Even in Susie Q, her and her boyfriend die from what’s thought to be drunk driving. And these were such good movies. D: It’s not like Disney Channel completely sucks now, but that “realistic” touch they used to put to their movies were great.
I just felt like talking about this. The difference is really amazing to me! Lol.
agreed. I feel like Disney Channel is going backward in time lately— to a prudish and completely repressed era. This isn’t to say that I think we need more sex and foul language on television, quite the opposite, but I would like to see more realistic dialogue and situations on Disney these days. They used to be so good at that. Everything is so dumbed down and ridiculously corny now. There is a lot to be said for kids’ programming that addresses family problems, school problems, reckless driving/reckless behavior in general, and even virginity. it’s educational. it’s real. What kind of education are today’s kids getting from Disney Channel?
