Over the past few years, the Walt Disney Company has taken steps in an effort to become more sensitive to cultural issues.
Back in 2020, Disney 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 also now includes 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 were removed from profiles set for “Kids” on Disney+ back in 2021. Films including Aladdin (including the Live Action version and sequels), The Aristocats, Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp, Peter Pan, and Swiss Family Robinson are unavailable on Junior Mode.
All of these movies are still available on adults’ profiles, as evidenced by the search below. Disney hasn’t made any announcements about the removal of these films.
We’ll keep checking to see if any more Disney movies are taken down, so stay tuned to AllEars.
