(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Departing from its long tradition of diverse princesses overcoming the patriarchy, Disney has decided to air a new series about a woman who is impregnated by Satan and gives birth to the Antichrist, Caldron Pool reported.
The show, Little Demon, follows a teenage girl, who is the spawn of Satan in human form. Although developed for the FX Network, the cartoon, which has produced six episodes thus far, has recently been picked up by the Disney+ streaming service.
It comes as Disney has fallen under sever scrutiny for its political stances on controversial issues that run contrary to traditional family values, including its support for child grooming and genital mutilation. In April, reports surfaced that the company was linked to Jeffrey Epstein madam Ghislaine Maxwell and had previously sponsored snorkel trips to Epstein’s private island.
Little Demon bills itself as an animated comedy featuring the voice of Danny DeVito as Satan. Lucy DeVito, the Taxi actor’s 39-year-old daughter with Cheers star Rhea Perlman, stars as Chrissy, a teenage girl whose name is a play on the Antichrist.
Chrissy and her “reluctant mother,” Laura, try to live a normal life in Delaware, despite their decidedly evil practices, according to Disney Plus Informer.
However, “the two are constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul,” it added.
Naturally, the series features demonic witchcraft, pagan rituals, gratuitous blood, gore and nudity.
Yet the show is not the first series aired by Disney that has promoted Satanism. The 2020 release of The Owl House featured a bisexual Dominican-American child as the lead character, who takes up demonic activity as she aspires to become a witch.
Alex Hirsch, a writer and animator for The Owl House, said that the show’s director “wanted to pick my brain in the early days of the series, when the original pitch was ‘girl hangs out with witch in hell.’”
Animation artist Ricky Cometa said of the show’s direction that “we’re trying to make this demon realm part of Disney. … We really wanted to make this demon realm feel like home, and just had to figure out how to do it.”
But even he was surprised that the child-centric entertainment giant was so receptive to the satanic content, calling it “something I didn’t think would happen.”
