Recently, the Walt Disney Company has been taking steps in an effort to become more sensitive to cultural issues.
Last year, they added “inclusion” as a fifth key in the company’s core values, and they also announced a refurbishment of Splash Mountain themed to Princess and the Frog. The company shared recently that they would be adding an advisory on Disney+ in front of films that were deemed culturally insensitive, and now we’ve seen some movies removed from children’s profiles for that very reason.
As reported by The Telegraph, multiple classic Disney films have been removed from profiles set for “Kids” on Disney+. So far, we’ve noticed Aladdin (including the Live Action version and sequels), The Aristocats, Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp, Peter Pan, and Swiss Family Robinson have all been taken off.
All of these movies are still available on adults’ profiles, as evidenced by the search below. Disney hasn’t yet made any formal announcement about the removal of these films, but we’ll be on the lookout for more information.
We’ll keep checking to see if any more Disney movies are taken down, so stay tuned to AllEars. We’ll make sure to keep you updated with any more details on this new development.
