Disney + warns viewers about "outdated cultural images" in movies

Dumbo, for example, had this statement at the bottom of the movie description: "This program was originally created. It may contain outdated cultural images."

  Disney + seems irresistible. But what is missing here is missing

The original "Dumbo" known for a character named Jim Crowe, the leader of a group of black crows who was voiced by a Caucasian actor using a stereotypical African-American accent.

Director Tim Burton chose not to include the original crow scene in his live-action remake of Dumbo.

He also missed the scene where black characters set up circus tents while singing "Rustabout Song."

Disney is not the first studio to add disclaimer to old titles containing racial prejudice or other disturbing content. For example, Warner Bros. uses this in an old version of Tom and Jerry:

"The cartoons you are about to see are products of their time. They may reflect some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that are common in American society. These images were wrong then and are wrong today. While these cartoons do not represent today's society, they present themselves as they were originally created because to do otherwise would be the same as to claim that these prejudices never existed. "

WarnerMedia is the parent company of Warner Bros. and CNN.
