Censorship Disney Plus

    I really don’t know what their thought process is. I mean if they’re trying to be politically correct, then Peter Pan should not be on there because of the depiction of the Native Americans.

      They should not censor on a primary account, and parents should be asked a series of questions that would create at level of censorship or reduced offerings based on their child’s age and maturity level. Though I am a Disney fan and annual passholder at Disneyland, I will not subscribe to a service that tells me what I can and cannot watch.

      “Big Chief Flying Eagle greets his brave, HOW!” ?

    Some episodes of Ducktales, Tailspin and Darkwing Duck are missing to, including the DW episode Hot Spells.

    They do have kids profiles like Netflix. Some things such as Star Wars movies, Marvel movies, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Rocketeer, and even America’s Funniest Videos aren’t available in the kids profiles. Those are just some I’ve searched. But just like Netflix you can switch profiles and watch them. My son just goes into mine if he can’t watch something.

      Kids profiles have weird filters in place though. Can’t pull up Moana or Brave, but I can pull up Guardians of the Galaxy.

        Disney. As evil as Wal-Mart, and as skilled at getting our money. I don’t subscribe; I wanted to, for the back catalog, but it’s things like this plus their current overall creative slump (what is with the constant, sad live action remakes of all the old movies, and they ruined their shot at Star Wars just as badly as Lucas did) that lead to my utter disdain for them. And don’t get me started on copyright.

      Parents choice. I mean they have Simpson’s on there and there’s cussing in it.

        Disney + still hasn’t given me a reason to throw caution to the wind and subscribe.

    They do that, but yet have Jessica Rabbit falling out all over the place in the ride at Disneyland, and in Toon Town, no less, which is geared toward the younger kids… I’ve always thought it had no business being there in the first place, but really?? I don’t think Disney needs to start getting into that kind of debate because there are PLENTY of other things that totally contradict themselves as far as what’s appropriate…

    I’m not sure why Disney chooses to censor their own material but when consumers want to use a program that gives them full choice of what to censor (vidangel) they sure the company (vidangel) that puts the power to choose in your hands

    Do you have any evidence that the scenes originally aired without censoring? Because every recording of the episode online is already censored.
