Disney+ Adds Disclaimers to Movies With Racist Stereotypes

Warnings preface films including ‘The Aristocats’ and ‘Dumbo.’

Though Disney‘s animated films have endured as classics, movies such as The Aristocats and Dumbo certainly don’t age well, thanks to the studio’s stereotypical depiction of minorities and use of racial slurs. To address Disney’s racist history, streaming platform Disney+ has added warnings to films that include “negative depictions” of minorities and “mistreatment of people or cultures.”

Prefacing films including Aladdin and Peter Pan, the un-skippable 12-second disclaimer reads, “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.” The disclaimer also links to a website that explains a selection of problematic scenes including a racist caricature of East Asians in The Aristocats and the portrayal of Indigenous people in Dumbo and Peter Pan.

Head to the Disney website to learn more about its new movie warnings.
