The Lion King and so forth

The Lion King was on TV the other day and it prompted a couple of thoughts. For starters, could this 1994 movie be made today, given how politically incorrect it is in so many ways? (We pause to take note of the excellent collaboration of Tim Rice and Elton John, whose work we usually don’t like that much). We note that Tim Rice is appropriate to this season for a number of reasons. OK, that almost does it for today. We’ll end with a reference to Aladdin, another questionable ancient non-PC film (1992). In addition to Mork, it features Jessica Fletcher and Lenny Briscoe. Can’t beat that.
