These Classic Movies Have Been Removed from Disney+ Children’s Profiles

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.

  1. I get why they’re doing it but it’s the kids that are least going to understand why. They watch these absolute classic movies with innocence and purity in their eyes. They are not going to understand why these movies are being taken off of their profiles. I also appreciate that it might then spark up a conversation about why but I just think it’s getting a bit ridiculous now. The fact that I, at 32 years old, and having had watched all of those films many many times since they were released actually had to search into why some of these movies were having to be removed. You can’t rewrite history and you can’t go back and remake a film. New adaptations can be made which address the former issues but don’t remove the originals…use them as a place to learn and grow from. I just think it’s getting a bit out of hand.
