Señor generalization here.

Any form of storytelling that does not make you feel anything towards situations and certain characters ultimately fails as a story; A good movie can have a bad story.

it had to have had the most people of the most age groups crying for a character (at least at Simba trying to wake up Mufasa's corpse) across the world..

It's a story told before, and it executes it well in terms of characters (already written centuries ago), music, and emotional impact.
Any story with a theme can be an outstanding media production, and it all depends on the execution. Unless, of course, it's not your cup of tea :D .

i think the aborigines were talking about spirit beings in a realm above the earth plane, the closest their language would allow any description was up in the clouds.

There is really ONE world government, and the "politics" that we see are just a charade to keep us thinking that we matter.

i think the most fun theory is the one in the book Journey to the Centre of the Earth, where
there is a whole sun --

ancient aboriginal legends in one of the current provinces, had it that living on top of the clouds,
were a whole other set of people , cloud-people,
and they didnt know of our existence, and the thunder was from them running around or something.
.


Now that I live in an apartment with heavy footed neighbors upstairs... I believe it! :lol:

Or...the closest in our language would allow when translating from their languages. :D

The earth cannot be flat because the cat theory proves it wrong. You know how cats knock things over the edge right? Be it table tops or counters, or anything, if there isn't something on the surface, the cat will knock it off. If the world really was flat, we'd know it because so many things would've gone missing (including pets worldwide) someone would set off to find them and there, at the literal edge of the world would be tons of cats playfully lobbing things off the edge. But this hasn't happened, so clearly the earth is round. For no other reason.
