There is a Montessori magazine called Tomorrow's Child. I'm sorry I can't remember which month it was (I think April or May), but on the cover of the magazine was a picture of Mickey Mouse with a slash through him (you know, the kind of slash that connotates a person is against something- it has a circle around it also). Anyway, the article inside the magazine that corresponded with the cover was about Disney movies and Montessori. Especially for the child 6 years old and under, parents and educators alike need to be very careful about fantasy movies. Children this age have a difficult time distinguishing between fantasy and reality. The article went into much greater detail.
In my opinion, Disney movies in particular seem very violent. Mufasa's death in the Lion King, the serpent in Aladdin, the evil Malificent in Sleeping Beauty (she turns into a dragon to kill the prince)... I could go on and on. I personally believe that very young children at the very least do not benefit from watching these things- and sometimes they can get very scared and confused about the safety of the world around them.
Just my two cents...
