A scene from the animation film by Disney 'Peter Pan.'
Disney has added extended disclaimers to classics including "Peter Pan" and "Aristocats" on its streaming platform to warn viewers that the films contain derogatory stereotypes about minorities.
Disney+ subscribers will be shown a text disclaimer before watching Peter Pan don a "redskin" headdress in the 1953 cartoon fantasy, or listening to a slant-eyed and buck-toothed "East Asian" cat singing in the 1970 animated feline movie.
While previous disclaimers on the streaming platform already acknowledged "outdated cultural depictions," the new warning says certain Disney film stereotypes "were wrong then and are wrong now."
"This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures," reads the message, which cannot be skipped.
It adds: "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."
"Swiss Family Robinson" and "Dumbo" -- which contains a "Jim Crow" homage to racist minstrel troops -- are also among the films that will carry the new disclaimers, created after consulting with groups including the African American Film Critics Association.
