One the one hand, perhaps this is just a feel good Disney movie.
On the other hand, perhaps this is just another example of how our culture views children as some sort of parental wish fulfillment commodity. In this trailer, the value of the child is not intrinsic to his nature (especially since he does not seem God-given) but rather in that he fulfills the wishes and fantasies of his “parents.”
Perhaps I am just in a bad mood, but this trailer doesn’t sit well with me. Your thoughts?
