151 Kids Movie Review Series: Rewatched Wall-E and Holy Shit it’s Problematic
For the first of our three-part kids’ movie series, we rewatched Wall-E and were horrified at how awful it was. Beyond insufferable fat-shaming, it had an insidious conservative message lurking under its seemingly liberal veneer. Oof.
In This Episode
Today we deconstruct Wall-E, a Pixar/Disney movie about a little lone robot, left to clean up the trash heap that Earth became under the excesses of humans. While the film seems to have a liberal, pro-environmental agenda, it’s actually a film promoting conservative, Christian ideals. Also, there’s fat-shaming. So, so much fat-shaming.
