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 the 2017 live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. We talk about Disney’s First Openly Gay Character™, whether cross-dressing is hilarious, and whether the serving classes are morally responsible for their masters.

The joke we told in the episode and couldn’t remember the source of was a tweet by Dana Schwartz!
