The Short Version: Many of us will never forget the day that Disney Channel did something that shocked kids everywhere, making the movie Tiger Cruise, which was about 9/11.

In this video, we're seeing who remembers when Disney Channel made a movie about 9/11... yes it got dark. Explore the controversial film Tiger Cruise starring Hayden Panettiere and Bill Pullman in yet another Attempt from Disney to stir up nationalism and seemingly support military recruitment efforts. Was this a touching film of unity and strength aboard the USS Constellation, or an exploitative attempt at grabbing headlines and garnering support or the US Navy?

Hey there, fellow viewers! It's your pal, Nick DiRamio, and today I'm diving into the world of Disney Channel movies to discuss a film that hits close to home for many of us. That's right, we're talking about the movie centered around the 9/11 tragedy. Now, before we get into it, I just want to say that I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to share my thoughts with you all. So, let's jump right into it, shall we?

First things first, I have to say that I was a bit skeptical when I heard Disney Channel was making a movie about such a sensitive and heavy topic. And unfortunately, my doubts were confirmed as I watched the film. The plot was a little too far-fetched for my taste, with children going on a military cruise and trying to solve their personal issues while the adults were busy saving the day. And let's not forget the excessive use of green-screen technology that was just...well, let's just say it wasn't the most convincing.

But despite its flaws, I do have to give credit where credit is due. The movie did attempt to showcase the resilience and patriotism that emerged in the aftermath of 9/11. And I have to admit, seeing the real-life connections of some of the actors to the event did add a layer of emotion to the film. I also want to take a moment to pay tribute to the victims of 9/11 and their loved ones. My heart goes out to all those affected by that tragic day. Overall, while I may have some criticisms, I do appreciate the film's intent to educate its young audience about an important historical event. And hey, at least it gave us some material for some good ol' movie commentary, am I right? Stay tuned for more from yours truly, Nick DiRamio.
