I was inspired to go into science because of Star Wars, not by 'Battle beyond the Stars' , 'the last star fighter' etc etc.
For me saying that a film or book is made for kids has no negative connotation, so my comment wasn't meant to belittle the films. For example I believe that the book "The Hobbit" is much better than the LotR trilogy.

I just wanted to express that I see no big reason for concerns - though I admit that 95 % of the Disney films are schmaltzy schlock.
