Disney / The Lion King screencap Classic Disney movies were no stranger to featuring some traumatizing scenes.  The director of "Pete's Dragon" revealed that you're required to sign a contract agreeing that the Disney movie won't feature beheadings, impalement, or smoking.  Exceptions can be made if it's necessary to maintain historical accuracy.  You’d think anything goes when it comes to Disney. The classic children’s movies contain traumatizing scenes like Scar’s pack of hyenas planning a murder in The Lion King or the hunter getting ready to stab Snow White. Other moments just seem questionable for kids, like the caterpillar smoking something questionable in Alice in Wonderland and Dumbo’s trippy night of drinking. These days, though, the Walt Disney Company spells out specific things its characters can’t do (which have nothing to do with the three words Disney employees aren’t allowed to say). David Lowery, director of the 2016 Pete’s Dragon, made the big reveal in an interview with Ain’t It Cool News. “When you sign a contract with Disney, the thing it says your film cannot have are beheadings, impalement, or smoking,” he revealed. Lowery didn’t have any intel on whether the rule holds true for adult movies, but the last rule started in 2015, when Walt Disney Company chairman and CEO Bob Iger banned smoking in any Disney film. The only exceptions are R-rated movies and any scenes in which smoking is necessary to maintain historical accuracy.

Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet/YouTube The US Navy has released footage that shows a Russian Su-27 intercepting a US Navy EP-3 surveillance aircraft. The video shows the Russian jet pass by the EP-3 for a split second, momentarily being just five feet from the aircraft. The intercept is just the latest in a string of intercepts by the Russians against American planes. US Naval Forces Europe-Africa have released footage of a Russian Su-27 intercepting a US Navy EP-3 Aries signals reconnaissance aircraft over the Black Sea on Monday. "A U.S. EP-3 Aries aircraft flying in international airspace over the Black Sea was intercepted by a Russian Su-27," the Navy statement read. "This interaction was determined to be unsafe due to the Su-27 closing to within five feet and crossing directly through the EP-3's flight path, causing the EP-3 to fly through the Su-27's jet wash. The duration of the intercept lasted two hours and 40 minutes." Monday's intercept is the latest in a string of "unsafe" intercepts that the Russian military has conducted.  In November, a Russian Su-30 fighter flew as close as 50 feet before turning on its afterburners while intercepting a US Navy P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine warfare aircraft over the same area, and in December, two US Air Force F-22s were intercepted by Russian Su-25 and Su-35 jets. The US Aircraft had to fire flares as warnings to the Russian jets, one of which "had to aggressively maneuver to avoid a midair collision." Russia has denied the incident in Syria took place.
