We Want The D
About This Show
Disney films have shaped and supported childhoods for over 75 years. But when you watch them as adults there are things that make you want to unfreeze Walt's head and say, "What the hell, guy?!". Tune in each week to hear Vicky, Nolan, and Jill rip apart, analyse, and laugh at beloved childhood classics from the Disney catalogue.

WWTD 079 - The Lone Ranger: Train Action
We're no strangers to controversy here at We Want The D. We've watched Peter Pan, Dumbo, The Sign of Zorro and many other Disney movies that have had less-than-ideal depictions of diverse peoples. But we've always managed to find solace in the fact that those movies are from another time, when attitudes and perceptions were more ignorant and less developed. So when it comes to 2013's THE LONE RANGER, we are at a bit of a loss in how anyone involved thought this movie was a-ok in its depiction of indigenous people, particularly in agreeing to let Johnny Depp star as Tonto. The result is our longest episode yet, which feels appropriate for a two and half hour movie that has so much to unpack we still feel like we left much of it unexplored at the end.
