Disney+ Puts Disclaimers About Racism On Older Films Including ‘Dumbo’ And ‘Peter Pan’

Some of Disney’s most iconic animated films are coming with a warning on the entertainment’s giant’s streaming service.

Viewers who tune into classics such as Jungle Book, Lady and the Tramp, Dumbo, Peter Pan, and The Aristocats will see a message announcing: “This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now.”

Rather than remove the titles, Disney hopes that watching will “spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.”

According to the BBC, a shorter warning began showing last year.

How do you feel when going back to watch these films today?
