Way Too Seriously is a weekly podcast in which Jan and Paul Moffett talk about the implicit biases, the assumptions, and the thematic implications of kids’ movies with exactly the appropriate level of seriousness.
On this episode we talk about Disney’s Aladdin. We also talk about fetishized exoticisation of Arabia, whether women are prizes to be won, and whether it’s acceptable to transform a monkey into an elephant without his consent.
