Found an interesting story about one filmmakers attempt to get Disney to take on some educational documentaries. You can throw this sort of accusation at Disney all the time and some of it will stick. But not this time. Look at Disney’s America’s Best Teacher Awards. I think that ‘edutainment’, a word that strikes fear into the hearts of many, is Disney’s goal, even their forte. To ask them to do a straight documentary such as the ‘true life’ videos doesn’t play to their strengths.
