I love nature. I am all for protecting the environment, and I applaud the efforts to reach out to the young kids to teach this message. What I found to be rather disturbing about the film, however, is that the only non-Caucasian human character in this movie happened to be a super-evil Asian man. Despite an Irish sounding name of O'Hare, from the stereotypical haircut of the 1930s Japanese youths and Monty Python's satiric "they only come up to your knees" reference to Asians' stature, the character clearly appeared to be drawn with Asian stereotypes in mind. There is a not so subtle message the studio is trying to convey to the film's 4-9 year old audiences - that is, the Asians are evil destroyers of the environment. Sure, there have been plenty of pollution of the oceans and emission of green house gases from China, and many Japanese continue to kill dolphins for food. But this pathetic attempt of planting the young minds with a racial stereotype is quite reminiscent of the Germany in the 1930s.
