The most recent installment of the ground-breaking series delves deeply into the production of the American Disney classic “A Goofy Movie.” The phrase “the Blackest movie ever made” was used repeatedly. After viewing a very interesting episode of “Atlanta,” viewers are rethinking their connection with the animated comedy.
The narrative centers on Thomas Washington, a Black animator who always hoped to have an impact on the animation industry in a way that was relevant to him and his culture. The humorous episode was captured on camera in the form of a mockumentary. Despite not being based on reality, it was engaging, persuasive, and had a very real, personal feel to it.
There is a widespread belief among fans that “A Goofy Movie” was the first Black Disney film ever produced. The “Atlanta” crew’s ability to delve into every emotion imaginable, including grief, anger, happiness, betrayal, remorse, and, most importantly, delight, impressed us.
Many of the moments are worth remembering again. For instance, near the conclusion of the narrative, when they finally located Washington, he was fishing with his son at the same lake. They displayed gloves and big shoes, two distinguishing characteristics of the Goofy figure.
From the narrative to the cinematography to the directing to the casting, it was truly excellent television.
On social media, viewers are also commenting on the most recent episode. Many people applaud “Atlanta” for reshaping the plot of the iconic Disney film, and many are now accepting this version as fact. Others have publicly stated that “Atlanta’s” final season is shaping up to be the best television we’ve ever seen.
Bold claims, but we don’t see any lies. That’s great. Don’t forget to watch “Atlanta” on Hulu.
