Thisarticle critically explores the manner in which Walt Disney Company(WDC) animated films display local stories and histories asby-product for the greedy strip-miner in the gold-mine of legend andthe myth. WDC takes local stories and experiences, redesign them tofit into the discourse of American imperialism (political, economicor cultural) and offer them to the public. This portraysincorporation of American ancient political and cultural stereotypesin its new imperial expansion. This process deprives the stories oftheir local geographical contexts. This paper is appropriate since Ialso hope to critique Disney’s perversion of local experiences inthe production of its output.
