Disney+ has recently given the green light to produce a new German original series titled Pauline. The series follows an 18-year-old girl who becomes pregnant after a one-night stand with the devil.
According to Deadline, the creators of Netflix’s “How To Sell Drugs Online (Fast)” are behind this project and say it is close to their hearts.
However, MovieGuide – a family-friendly entertainment organization – is sounding the alarm on this project as it normalizes and promotes demonic association in young viewers.
Parents Have Reason to Worry About Disney’s Latest Content Push
Lately, Disney’s “coming-of-age” films have been out of touch with what parents want their kids to watch. These films often push content with themes around witchcraft, sex, and violence that can be detrimental to children’s values and beliefs.
Last year alone, Disney lost over $100 million each for their animated movies “Light Year” and “Strange World,” which depicted same-sex relationships on screen.
It is clear that Disney continues to push content that can be damaging for young viewers, and parents should be cautious when considering if they want their children watching anything associated with Disney Studios.
MovieGuide Calls For Parents To Stand Up Against Pauline
In light of this news about Pauline’s production start date, Movieguide chairman and founder Ted Baehr is calling on parents to petition Disney+ from releasing this series on its platform.
He explains that by portraying Satan as a romantic partner in any way it sends a dangerous message that associating with demons, evil spirits, or even Satan himself is acceptable behavior – something no parent would ever want their child believing in or trying themselves!
Baehr states “If released there will be millions of young viewers who may perceive this twisted and disturbing story as desirable and exciting… We must act now to petition Disney to reconsider their decision.”
Parents need not feel helpless but instead have an opportunity here through Movieguide partnering with CitizenGo where they can make sure their voices are heard in order for Pauline never hit our small screens.
