Despite the fact that Disney Plus already included a notice in older content so as not to hurt public sensibilities, it has now gone one step further and has blocked some of its classics for children under 7 years.
In this way, and from now on, some of the great classic Disney Plus movies will be blocked for children under 7 years of age.
That is, they will be available but will not be shown for minors of that age.
Some classics on Disney Plus, locked
Dumbo, Peter Pan and Los Aristogatos will no longer be available in the profiles of children under 7 years old, but they can be seen in the rest of the users with the now classic notice that the company included last November:
This program includes negative representations and / or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and they are wrong now. Rather than removing content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it, and spark conversations to create a more inclusive future together. Disney is committed to creating inspiring and ambitious themed stories that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience around the world. ”
It is not the first time that Disney Plus is at the center of the controversy for being accused of censorship. Some of the classic titles They are not even available on the streaming service like Canción del Sur.
Others that are available such as Splash, by Ron Howard, and being one of the most beloved classics of the Disney factory, it underwent a substantial modification in its version of Disney Plus, in which it was tried add hair digitally to the female lead to cover her butt in a very short scene from the movie.
Criticisms of this movement have not been long in coming, and some voices point to the role that parental controls play when it is not parents who censor content initially suitable for all audiences, but when it is a platform that overnight. the morning decide what is suitable and what is not for the little ones. Something that was worth yesterday but that 72 hours later represents a harmful impact on the barrier, yes, of the 7 years of age.
