Disney films formed the basic of *all* of our moral codes, opinions and life goals (still waitin' on that princess carriage, guys!) so we can understand why they'd be strict on what they put in their movies.
Now the director of the 'Pete's Dragon' remake, David Lowery, has talked about what's actually in the contract when you're asked to make a Disney film - and it's more specific than we could have imagined.
1. NO BEHEADINGS
2. NO SMOKING
3. NO IMPALEMENT
“Those are literally the three things you are not allowed to put into a Disney film,” he told Ain’t It Cool News.
“They literally have those words in the contract as things you’re not allowed to do.”
There are a couple of exceptions - for example, smoking's OK when it's depicted in a negative light (we're looking at you, Pinocchio) or when a historical figure who many have smoked is represented.
Impalement was banned by Disney after the evil sea witch Ursula was brutally killed by the bow of a ship in 1989’s The Little Mermaid.
The more you know.
