Disney Plus blocks kids from watching movies with racist stereotypes

Kids won’t be able to watch The Jungle Book or Lady and the Tramp on Disney Plus now, without the intervention of their adult guardians. Disney Plus has quietly blocked kid profiles from accessing content that runs with an advisory on racist depictions. 

Last October, Disney launched its “Stories Matter” initiative, which added advisories to movies with “negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures.” With this move, first noticed by Polygon, Disney Plus goes even further by restricting kids under seven from searching for or watching any films with those advisories, including Dumbo, Peter Pan, Aristocats and Swiss Family Robinson.
