Disney Plus: 'Wrong then ... wrong now'
February 17, 2021
After adding cultural advisories to racially-questionable films in October 2020, the online streaming platform Disney Plus has now blocked the accounts of children under 7 from watching several films due to “negative depictions of race.”
Disney created the initiative called “Stories Matter'' to address racially-offensive and stereotypical images and themes that have appeared in past films, such as “Dumbo,” “Peter Pan.”
The “Stories Matter” webpage includes statements about inclusion, along with videos of people from diverse communities addressing representation.
