I don't see why you're at all surprised/shocked. Shitting on source material is pretty much what Disney does. Look at Jungle Book and Peter Pan - they both bear very little resemblance to the stories they're purportedly based on. Disney is all about making relatively bland, inoffensive films that are good for merchandising.
