Disney+ Warns of Content With 'Outdated Cultural Depictions'.
Disney+ launched Tuesday, opening their vault of legendary films, not all of which hold up today.
The company created a disclaimer that reads, “This program is presented as originally created.
It may contain outdated cultural depictions.”.
Films such as ‘Dumbo,’ ‘Peter Pan,’ ‘The Jungle Book’ and a number of Mickey Mouse shorts contain the message.
The animated 'Dumbo' film is one example for the necessity of the warning, with culturally-insensitive characters like Jim Crow.
Though not all of the content contains offensive material, Disney was sure to slap the warning on several titles as a precaution
