In the second edition of The Idea of Nature in Disney Animation, Whitley updates his 2008 book to reflect recent developments in Disney and Disney-Pixar animation such as the apocalyptic tale of earth’s failed ecosystem, WALL-E. Beginning with his examination of Snow White, Whitley compelling study complicates our understanding of the classic Disney canon and demonstrates the crucial role the films’ depictions of the natural world play in shaping children’s understanding of contested environmental issues.
