You know yesterday morning I saw that commercial of the adventures of brer rabbit on the disney channel, and my mouth pratically hit the floor, since when did they decided to make cartoons with that bunch again. Unless it must have been one of eisner's last laugh before departing! But the one thing i am REALLY thankful for is Lasseter pulled the plug immediately on toy story 3, could not even imagine that mess
I totally agree with you on that...I don't know what this...this...I don't even know what to call it without swearing!!!!!!! The original is probably so much better than that cheap new thing, I don't understand this at all. And it has Nick Cannon, Danny Glover, and Wanda Sykes in it-that just makes it worse. I feel like, sure, if you make money off it, you're not gonna complain about it being racist...I want5 the original Song of the South!!!!!!!! *Whew* I feel better for venting, even though I doubt I made any sense.

Well the film is not Disney...Why was it aired on Disney Channel? I don't know. Maybe during the negotions with Oswald, Disney worked out a deal with Universal to advertise some of their stuff on Disney Channel....Since Universal owns NBC and NBC owned Oswald.
But their won't be any controversies in this film because Uncle Remus was not involved in it. The controversy in Walts Song of the South revolved around the Uncle Remus character because he was a happy slave....Or was it he was a happy free slave? Well the NAACP boycotted the film because they believed that Walt was making slavery seem like nothing.

i saw the dvd at costco yesterday. i had to do a double-take, although i could tell the characters didn't have the disney look. i hadn't heard anything about it before i saw it at the store, so i'm assuming it was straight to video.
i agree with DW that the reason "song of the south" isn't going to be released (at least unedited) is due to the uncle remus character. obviously disney is ok with the brer rabbit, fox & bear characters since they use them for splash mountain.
