A Distressed Earth through Disney

Ex Disney artist Jeff Hong sends a powerful message about the state of our planet through these unhappy endings showcased through the eyes of our favorite animated stars:

1. Deforestation:

Winnie The Pooh

2. Polution

Mulan

3. Poverty

Lilo and Stitch

4. Global Warming

Elsa

5. Animal Abuse

Dumbo

Not that i enjoy the negative messages aligning to our current state of affairs (the truth hurts), but i do think Hong did an excellent job in hitting home the emotional messages in these pictures.

  1. This is actually pretty awesome… so I hate to be “that guy”… but this is the “Nerd Nebula” after all… so the nerd in me demands this…

    The Elsa one doesn’t work thematically. In Frozen, the problem was Elsa freezing everything and they wanted things to thaw out! So Elsa crying over global warming actually makes no nerdly sense.

    Sorry… but my inner Sheldon Cooper demanded it! 🙂

  2. Having practiced environmental law (one of the most polarizing areas of the law) for over 25 years, I certainly understand your hesitancy to post this powerful piece. Using warm images from our youth to highlight world environmental degradation makes quite an impression, though. Brilliance, actually!

    As an environmental attorney, I feel obligated to reblog this incredible post from The Nerd Nebula (a pretty amazing blog) which captures with great feeling and amazing simplicity the destruction of the world’s environment with cartoon images from our youth.
