Students expelled over movie in which teddy bears attack teacher

`Two students are suing to return to school after they were expelled for making a movie in which evil teddy bears attack a teacher.

The teenagers were among four students expelled from Knightstown High School over the movie, titled “The Teddy Bear Master.” Two of the boys are asking a federal judge in Indianapolis to order the students reinstated, arguing that school officials overreacted to a film parody and violated their First Amendment rights. [..]

The boys, who are sophomores, worked on the teddy bear movie from fall 2005 through summer 2006. In the movie, the “teddy bear master” orders stuffed animals to kill a teacher who had embarrassed him, but students battle the toy beasts, according to documents filed in court.’
