#5. Toy Story Franchise: It’s Wrong to Outgrow Things
The real villain in each of these movies is maturity. Every problem in the toys’ life is caused by humans refusing to stay children, and refusing to stay in the mindset that toys are sentient and deserving of empathy. What message are we supposed to take home here? That we’re too quick to discard our possessions? That we’re too quick to give up old friends when we outgrow them? That we don’t treat inanimate objects with enough respect? That growing up is awful? Are any of those things even remotely true?
