Disney, the place of happiness fun and magic. A place ‘where dreams come true’ we’re being told by the billboards on the highway. But as always, one person’s dreams can destroy the other one’s. There is no universal dream to be found, no universal happiness, and no universal definition for magic. However, Disney tries to give you one, a definition of magic that should be sustained at all cost. Whenever something happens contradicting this definition, it should be banished and never be shown again. The dictorial magic should never ever be endangered! Though some very un-magical things happen within and around the magical boundaries, involving some serious bad-guys who bring their sick and twisted versions of happiness and fun along. Two views on the slogan ‘where dreams come true’ that totally collide at this place. And the media is loving it, they always love stories that make you think: “WHAT? This can’t be happening!”. And sometimes they’re right. Things didn’t happen. But most of the time these fairytales are truly fucked.up.
