Disney has further solidified its metamorphosis from a trusted source of family-friendly entertainment to a radically anti-Christian propaganda machine with its latest project.
The new offering on the company’s Disney+ streaming service features a teenage girl who becomes pregnant with Satan’s child.
The series, titled “Pauline,” will be produced by Philipp Käßbohrer and Matthias Murmannthe, the German duo behind Netflix’s “How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast).”
“For a long time, the series has been and still remains a project very close to our hearts,” Käßbohrer and Murmann said, per Deadline. “We’re thrilled that Disney+ loves this coming-of-age story as much as we do and that we’ve now been able to begin filming with such an amazing cast and crew.”
The 18-year-old protagonist, Pauline, is surprised to find herself pregnant after a one-night stand with “Lukas,” whom Pauline later discovers is “the devil himself,” according to Deadline’s description of the series.
For Pauline, the pregnancy couldn’t come at a worse time, since she’s already coping with typical teen stressors like “the climate crisis and the downfall of society.”
An IMDB writeup on the show explains that “[t]he pregnancy gives Pauline supernatural powers and an epic battle between good and evil ensues.” It isn’t clear from the descriptor exactly who or what these opposing forces may be, though it is perhaps not difficult to guess.
SERIES SENDS ‘DANGEROUS MESSAGE TO YOUNG VIEWERS’
Movieguide Chairman and Founder Ted Baehr slammed Disney for its undisguised contempt for Christian values and urged parents to “act fast” to petition Disney+ to stop the show’s release.
“We can’t let this twisted and disturbing content corrupt our children’s values and beliefs,” Baehr told CBN.
“Let me be clear. Pauline is not just another piece of entertainment. Horrifically, this series even portrays Satan as a romantic partner,” he said.
Baehr stressed that the show “sends a dangerous message to young viewers that associating with demons, Satan, and evil is acceptable and even desirable.”
MovieGuide is partnering with Citizen-go to stop the series from premiering on Disney+.
“If released, there will be millions of young viewers who may perceive this twisted and disturbing story as desirable and exciting,” Baehr warned. “Pauline has not been released yet, and we can still STOP this show from progressing any further … we need to act fast.”
A somewhat more humorous but equally condemnatory response from Creative Minority Report puzzled over Disney’s costly self-implosion.
“Disney+ recently laid a whole lot of people off. Something tells me this isn’t going to help,” a post on the conservative blog site read.
“It’s almost like the people running Disney hate Disney. Or maybe they just hate you so much. Either way, these projects [seem] very confused, poorly thought out, damaging to children, and harmful to families. But let’s be honest, that’s probably the point.”
CBN noted that Disney recently hemorrhaged more than $100 million apiece for their animated movies, Light Year and Strange World which included scenes featuring same-sex relationships.
