I'm sure this will make executive hearts at Sony go pit-a-pat.
... Essex-based Lepra Health in Action has expressed "disbelief" at the scene in Aardman Animation's The Pirates! Adventures with Scientists.
The charity said the film, due for release in March, sees an arm fall off a crew member on a "leper-boat".
... The scene shows the arrival of the Pirate Captain on board a captive ship, demanding gold.
"Afraid we don't have any gold old man, this is a leper-boat," explains a crew member. "See," he adds as his arm falls off.
... "We have already received complaints from people affected by leprosy in Brazil and India” ...
Complaints? Who would have thought?
No word yet if there will be changes to Aardman's short about blind school girls and teenage cripples ...
