The Jungle Book (1967)
The final Walt Disney production
On the heels of the abysmal failure of the Sword in the Stone, Walt Disney Productions decided to recreate the work of a culturally-appropriating Imperialist in the Jungle Book. The production of this family favourite was then interrupted by Walt Disney's death.
The movie itself is true to its roots with messages of racism, segregation, and misogyny. What happy memories!
