Hollywood takes a heavy hand when dealing with how the public perceives the images they create. The power to change social values is their domain of influence.

 

Disney has always tried to portray a squeaky clean image.

Hollywood does more than just make money. They say that's the biggest reason. It may have been once, but not anymore. They've reached a point where money is secondary to the power they can wield.

 

It's the power of influence over ideas. This matters more. A movie can change a social attitude towards human behaviors of all kinds. These all consuming behaviors feed a much bigger machine. By introducing something controversial into the norm and then projecting it with a repeated theme over a period of time changes the acceptance value. What was once controversial socially has become normalized. The next generation down the line have now been primed by a medium that is already prepared to sell them all the products necessary to keep the machine alive.

 

Rinse and repeat.

 

All packaged in bright lights and promises of fulfilled fantasy.

This extends into the spiritual too. Think of the myths and the archetypes used in popular movies. The ideas and characteristics they portray are extended to our day by changing the names and appearances to feed old fears and possibly find ways to overcome them. This can be positive as well as negative. Inculcating too much fear and fantasy drives the force towards chaos. 
 
A good movie shows these true lessons within the myth. Star Wars is the best example for this. With all its themes touching on the dark and the light. Shifting between light and shadow to tell a story that all humanity wonders about.  It resonates deep in the psyche. The question for all men and woman the world over. Where did human beings really come from? Not even Star Wars can answer that question..

It's strange how Star Wars seems to promote a single force over riding all religions. Funny how the 'real' world has so many different versions of God it's hard to keep track of the many faces He and His helpers are portrayed as on this earth. Gods, angels, demons, aliens, humans, monsters, the list goes on. Archetypes of all kinds mixing and colliding.

A good movie should have plenty of spam in it.

Then came the 80's...
 
A huge expansion in how business was done came about. Disney revenues we're falling. The old 'family entertainment' approach was failing. The head honchos brought in outside help from Paramount. That's when Eisner took control of the company and began expanding Disney's power by venturing in other film productions that catered to an adult oriented market. Do this by buying interests in other film companies. Some of them not so 'family oriented' at all.
 
The animation department changed their approach in how to present characters too. Remember Pocahontas and the Little Mermaid? Did Disney ever draw characters that looked really hot? Not like that. This was done on purpose to bring more males into the theaters. That's just a small example of the Disney magic affecting social values and concerns.
 
They also expanded their markets by bringing in more adult themes into the story lines. Old moral values are subtly brought into question. 
 
This is just touching the surface of how huge media companies influence our everyday lives.
 
Whether we know it or not...
