Apocalypto Preview

Hollywood --

Apocalypto is Disney's most violent movie ever, but insiders say it shouldn't come as a shock. It is time, they say, for Disney to update its image beyond animated musicals. Bob Iger probably said, "Hey, it's 2006. We have to produce movies that have more than just simple object lessons and sappy lyrics."

Viewers were most disturbed by the image of Simba eating Bambi's entrails after a gory battle involving the seven dwarves.

"Did Dopey really deserve to die?" One viewer asked through tears.

At the opening, seafood appetizers were served under the title "Nemo and Ariel's Sushi Bar"
