Disney Adds Warnings For Outdated And Racist Stereotypes To Some Films

Recently, many streaming platforms have wrestled with how to manage racist content amid a wave of anti-racist activity throughout the world. On Disney+, there is also a warning about the racist to be placed before the old movies.

Previously, the racist depictions in Disney’s prior films had only been vaguely mentioned. When Disney+ first came out, the only warning was that the movies had “outdated cultural depictions.” Now, Disney is adding a warning from several of its older films that include racial tropes. The media giant said, adding that while it can’t undo the past, “We can acknowledge it, learn from it and move forward together.”

As a result, several such films on the Disney+ streaming service will now include a message warning viewers that the upcoming program “includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or culture.” The warning will appear on the screen before the start of some classic Disney Plus films.

Continue reading if you’re curious as to why these Disney films have received a content warning. Find out which well-known logos were undergoing modifications as a result of their racist origins.

#1 “Fantasia” (1940)

The original “Fantasia” film had a dark-skinned centaurette who looks after the light-skinned centaurs named Sunflower. Despite the fact that this character was cut from the film, Disney added an advisory for this film because of its history of contributing to racist images.

#2 “Dumbo” (1941)

According to Disney, “Dumbo” contains references to racist minstrel performances. Not just that, the crows are named after the Jim Crow laws that enforced racial segregation in the United States.

#3 “Peter Pan” (1953)

“Peter Pan” portrays Native Americans in a clichéd light that does not reflect their diversity or actual cultural traditions. Furthermore, Disney characterizes Peter and the Lost Boys’ headdress dance as a mockery and appropriation of Native American culture and iconography.

#4 “Swiss Family Robinson” (1960)

Some pirates in “Swiss Family Robinson” have dyed their faces, talk in an unfamiliar tongue, and dress exaggeratedly and inaccurately. This portrays Asian and Middle Eastern peoples in a singular and prejudiced manner.

#5 “The Aristocats” (1970)

In “The Aristocats,” a cat with slanted eyes and buck teeth reflects a racist caricature of East Asian people with exaggerated stereotyped qualities. And the cat’s song about Westernized dishes like egg foo young and fortune cookies “mocks the Chinese language and culture.”
