Several movies and shows on Disney+ now carry an unskippable content warning that flags racist stereotypes. “This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the warning reads (via Polygon). “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 12-second message appears before the likes of The Aristocats, Peter Pan, Dumbo and Swiss Family Robinson. It includes a URL for a Disney website called Stories Matter that explains why depictions of certain characters in those shows and movies are harmful and/or offensive. The advisory text, which replaces a shorter warning, also appears on each applicable show or movie’s landing page.
