As anyone who has watched Disney films over many years knows, the characters and characterizations have changed over the decades (along with the frequent addition of sly humor intended to amuse the adults watching the movies with their children). The essays in this collection address race and ethnicity, traditions and transformations in gender and sexuality, essays on disability referring to beasts and innocents, and related trends. Editor Cheu (writing, rhetoric, and American cultures, Michigan State U.) and 23 contributors provided material for the book.
