We were discussing Disney Movies in another thread and it sparked a whole new discussion. Since Disney always makes so many sequels to all their movies, what would happen years down the road as real life set in? Here's a few examples:
The Lion King 4:
Simba is driven out of the pridelands because of a nearby city's
expansion. After wandering the streets and scrapping through garbage cans, he is dubbed a menace and tranquilized. He is relocated to a circus where he is beaten and forced to
do humiliating tricks in front of large audiences. The pay is terrible,
the hours are lousy, and the other lions don't give him any respect.
After having 5 kids, Cindarella finds herself suddenly back to
scrubbing floors and doing dishes, only this time there's a crying baby
and 4 squabbling children in the mix. Her husband is too busy running the kingdom to offer her any emotional support, and her fairy Godmother is off in Bermuda enjoying her retirement. She soon realizes that it was much easier cleaning up for her wicked stepmother than it is scrubbing toilets and doing diapers.
Sleeping Beauty 3:
Sleeping Beauty struggles with insomnia after being tormented by the
financial struggles when her kingdom goes into a recession. She finds
herself staying up all night every night worrying about all the bills
her kingdom has been racking up. Her mounting drinking problem finds
her once again sleeping all day every day. After the castle is repossessed, she moves back in with the dwarves. This causes even more problems due to their conflicting personalities.
Feel free to add any more you can think of. I would love to hear more suggestions.
Every man dies, but few truly live. Live your life to its fullest, every day as if it were your last.
