Need to teach the young 'uns morality while also building your Clash Of Clans army? Plop them down in front of a Disney movie that you can pay 1/4 of an attention to while mostly just poking at your phone. That's what Disney films are for: They're our modern day fables, built around some central moral triumph of good over evil. But if you were paying full attention, you might've caught some pretty messed up stuff, like the time ...
5 Frozen's Elsa Killed Soooo Many Babies
Elsa, heir to the throne of Arendelle, discovers that she is Iceman (but that's OK, because Disney owns Marvel now). After accidentally freezing her sister Anna, she locks herself away until her coronation day. Her secret powers manifest, forcing her into a self-imposed exile ... but not before she unwittingly kicks off an eternal winter in Arendelle.
Does any noble in any story have a response to hardship
that doesn't involve going insane or destroying the world?
It's made clear that this unexpected and supremely harsh winter is a danger to everyone in the kingdom, with characters shown stacking firewood and providing emergency blanket relief in the castle's courtyard. Here's the thing, though: Elsa doesn't just freeze the castle. Elsa freezes the whole freaking fjord.
The vast majority of Arendelle's people don't get to hang out in the castle courtyard all day. They live a meager existence in meager huts tucked somewhere within all those meager cliffs. And unlike the Starks, who brace for winter like a Game Of Thrones fan braces for spoilers, these people aren't ready. Their usual months of preparations -- gathering firewood, sewing up thicker clothing, burying stank-ass fish in their backyard, etc. -- are unceremoniously yoinked away by super-powered royalty throwing a tantrum.
Enjoy your idyllic Swiss mountain town image, because pretty soon you're going to resort to cannibalism.
Accidentally or not, Elsa sentenced the entire working class to a slow and icy death. As with all extreme weather events, it's society's most vulnerable -- the elderly, infirm, and babies -- that suffer the most. So even if we assume the hearty folks of Arendelle sucked it up and walked it off (uphill both ways, of course), at the bare minimum, Elsa is a mass murderer of geriatrics. Maybe they can address that in the sequel, Frozen 2: Freezer Geezers.
4 The Fairies From Sleeping Beauty Tried To Murder The Whole Kingdom
The story begins with the evil fairy Maleficent crashing the celebration of Princess Aurora's birth, where she gives her the gift that keeps on giving: A curse that will cause her, on her 16th birthday, to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die (spindles were basically the medieval equivalent of a modern public bus seat). Three good fairies, Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather "help" the princess by adjusting the curse so that she won't die, but merely sleep forever, because they're firmly against DNRs and can't help but inject their politics into their magic. Then they whisk the child away to raise her in the woods, in a shack, destitute, with no magic, even though the curse only put her in danger for one single specific day out of 16 entire years. The king and queen agree to this plan because they were apparently hoping for a boy, anyway.
Fast forward 16 years, and we find the fairy trio having a noisy and colorful magic-off to celebrate the princess' birthday -- on the one and only day they had to be discreet.
"Just for once, can you guys just be cool?"
Maleficent finds Aurora and sees her curse through. As the three fairies cry and wail over the princess' easily avoidable coma, Merryweather says, "[The king and queen] will be heartbroken when they find out." To which Flora responds, "They're not going to. We'll put them all to sleep, until she awakens."
And that's precisely what they do. Even though they had absolutely no way of knowing at the time that the cure for Aurora's curse, her true love, was out gallivanting about the woods. They chose putting the entire kingdom in a never-ending coma over allowing them to experience icky feelings.
Remember that thing Maleficent did? You know, the one that made her the villain of this movie? Well Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather did that to fucking everyone.
