    Just thought I’d share this with you all.  A rumor from WDWPRO.  Disney is going to recast all white voice actors who voiced a character of color-even if the character is a mythical creature. I’ll let you all read it here:




    As I think through this a bit-how are they going to address say the crow characters in Dumbo?  Consider the voice actors:

    The Hall Johnson Choir as Crow Chorus
    James Baskett as Fats Crow
    Nick Stewart as Specks Crow
    Hall Johnson as Deacon Crow

    Disney will have to acknowledge that the animation of the crows are caricatures of African Americans, and in fact are wrong.  Will Dumbo be cancelled?  I would think that education and discussion is a way to address the problem.


    By this logic Darth Vader can no longer be voiced by James Earl Jones!  That can’t happen!


    How do you define an animals skin color?
