Classic Disney animated movies Peter Pan, The Jungle Book and Dumbo have been given content advisory notices warning viewers that they contain outdated or stereotyped depictions of people of colour.
The advisories, the latest example of Hollywood’s reckoning with racism, come in the form of a short graphic on the Disney+ streaming service as some of the older films are selected for viewing.
“This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the on-screen advice 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.”
Disney said on its website that the advisories were part of a review of its library content.
