Abigail Disney, Walt Disney’s great-niece and granddaughter of studio co-founder Roy O. Disney, says “we haven’t adapted our acting language” in response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, and that if people “pay attention”, they will realize that “Cinderella sleeps in her car” at Disneyland.
“During the pandemic, we’ve seen billionaires get rich and nothing has been done for essential workers,” Disney told Yahoo Entertainment. “We haven’t matched our language to the action.”
