Most of the children movies are animal-friendly, because Hollywood knows that children in general love animals. The problem is that their parents teach their children to dissociate those cute screen animals from their real-life counterparts. It's a good thing to fall in love and root for Babe, but once at home, you're supposed to eat pork, because those ribs in your plate have nothing to do with that sweet piglet. I witnessed this attitude many times. I took my 8 year-old nephew to see Chicken Run, and when he got home, his mother (my sister) served him a chicken cutlet. The boy said something like "I don't want to eat those chicken who didn't want to end up in a pie", and my sister reassured him that that piece of meat on his plate had nothing to do with his screen heroes, and besides, he needed to eat it if he wanted to grow tall and strong. My sister is not a bad person at all; her behavior is typical of the average parent.
