In this follow-up to his best-selling The Gospel According to The Simpsons: The Spiritual Life of the World's Most Animated Family, religion journalist Mark Pinsky explores the role that animated features of The Walt Disney Company have played in the moral and spiritual development of generations of children. Pinsky explores the religious, moral and theological themes in thirty one of the most popular Disney films, including Snow White, Cinderella, Beauty and The Beast, and The Lion King, and discovers what he calls the Disney Gospel: faith that good will prevail, trust in yourself and your friends, and a little bit of something magical. Pinsky also looks at recent Disney developments, including the 1990s boycott of Disney by the Southern Baptist Convention, the impact of the theme parks on American culture, and the role that Michael Eisner has played in the resurgence of the company since the mid 1980s.
