DISNEY MOVIES & SCRIPTURES
We had a YW Camp on Disney Movies and I researched the scriptures to find "descriptions" of specific Disney movies. We had a race (between Wards) to see who could come up with the answers first. It was well received!
WHAT DOES THIS DESCRIBE?
1- 2 Nephi 9:34
34 Wo unto the liar, for he shall be thrust down to hell.
PINOCCHIO (Obviously...his nose grew with every lie)
2- Proverbs 22:6
6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
LION KING (He was trained...he ran away...he came back because of his training. You see the character both as a child and an adult.)
3- Mosiah 4:14
14 And ye will not suffer your children that they go hungry, or naked; neither will ye suffer that they transgress the laws of God, and fight and quarrel one with another, and serve the devil, who is the master of sin, or who is the evil spirit which hath been spoken of by our fathers, he being an enemy to all righteousness.
HINT: The last four words in James 1:27
4- 2 Nephi 28:8
8 And there shall also be many which shall say: Eat, drink, and be merry; nevertheless, fear God--he will justify in committing a little sin; yea, lie a little, take the advantage of one because of his words, dig a pit for thy neighbor; there is no harm in this; and do all these things, for tomorrow we die; and if it so be that we are guilty, God will beat us with a few stripes, and at last we shall be saved in the kingdom of God.
ALICE IN WONDERLAND (She was invited to “Eat Me”...”Drink Me.” And the story was all about a little girl learning how to act with social ettiquette so she could join the adults at her mother’s tea. You know ... learning how to treat her neighbors.)
5- 1 Samuel 16:7
7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for [the LORD seeth] not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
LADY AND THE TRAMP (Not Beauty and the Beast...because he was a beast in his heart before he was changed physically into a beast.)
Another possible answer: THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME. (He was beautiful on the inside and ugly on the outside.)
6- D&C 101:79
79 Therefore, it is not right that any man should be in bondage one to another.
ALADDIN (Because the Genie was in bondage and wanted freedom)
7- Exodus 20:15
15 Thou shalt not steal.
OLIVER AND COMPANY (He was accepted but forced to steal)
8- John 3:5
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
LITTLE MERMAID (She was born of water but had to change to enter the kingdom of the Prince.)
9- 1 Corinthians 13:11
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
PETER PAN (The lost boys never have put away childish things.)
LION KING (Simba’s understanding changes as he grows up.)
10- Jeremiah 48:40
40 For thus saith the LORD; Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread his wings over Moab.
HINT: Matthew 11:15
15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
DUMBO (He flies as an eagle and he uses his ears)
11- Proverbs 21:19
19 [It is] better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.
Snow White (She ran away - not necessarily of her own free will - to the wilderness to get away from her contentious and angry mother who was trying to kill her.)
12- Judges 9:53-54
53 And a certain woman cast a piece of a millstone upon Abimelech's head, and all to brake his skull.
54 Then he called hastily unto the young man his armourbearer, and said unto him, Draw thy sword, and slay me, that men say not of me, A woman slew him. And his young man thrust him through, and he died.
MULAN (It’s not proper for a woman to be killing but it can be done)
13- Luke 10:30
30 And Jesus answering said, A certain [man] went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded [him], and departed, leaving [him] half dead.
ROBIN HOOD (This is only because it mentions thieves.)
OLIVER AND COMPANY (Same reason.)
14- D&C 88:124
124 Cease to be idle; cease to be unclean; cease to find fault one with another; cease to sleep longer than is needful; retire to thy bed early, that ye may not be weary; arise early, that your bodies and your minds may be invigorated.
CINDERELLA (She was always busy, cleaning, never found fault with her step-mother or sisters and she had to get home early or her finery would
change back to the mundane things.)
15- Exodus 20:12
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee
MARY POPPINS (She teaches them to respect and honor and be happy with their own folks and not to depend on some nanny.)
