Does nobody know how to make a trailer nowadays? Tease, don’t tell tell most of the story. Tease.

This already looks more inventive and exciting than Onward, which reviews suggest is a bit of a disappointment.

I hope the world doesn’t run out of kleenex before this is on DVD. Pixar always leaves me a blubbering mess. HEY I’m A SENSITIVE GUY!

So, every time Disney does an animated movie with a black lead, they sure as hell make sure that the character spends most of the runtime not actually being a black person in a black body, huh?

Ever watch the original trailers offered as extras on 40s/50s film-noir DVDs? Those trailers give away everything!

Seriously? This is what you’re complaining about?

Yes, yes they are. POC erasure and particularly black and native erasure is real.

I’m presuming it is set to release on June 19th to correspond with Juneteenth the holiday commemorating when the abolition of slavery was announced in Texas in 1856.
