If Disney is only now this concerned about the sequence and doesn't think it should be shown, maybe just... don't put the movie on the service. I'd rather it not be available on here, and still able to buy uncensored, than butchered.

They might also just not announce it officially at all and"stealth" release the edited version on D+. They'd probably prefer that it not get any attention.

Unless they want to show how progressive they are. But, given that this is something that could be controversial, I think you could be right and we might not have any confirmation of that until the streaming service launches.

What I'm worried about is that maybe they will sell the new censored version on physical media too from now on, instead of the original one.

What I'm really questioning is what film will be on the chopping block next, because I think it's safe to say that Dumbo will just be the first (and technically not even the first considering Fantasia and Song of the South). I'm guessing Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp, or The Aristocats. The former and latter could be modified without changing their respective plotlines but it would be very difficult to remove the Si & Am sequence from Lady and the Tramp without disrupting the narrative.

Floyd Norman talks about the crows from Dumbo. It's an interesting read.

Thanks for posting! That was a really interesting read and the reference to the vultures in The Jungle Book is a pretty good comparison that most people disregard.

Reads like the ravings of an old man telling the young kids to get off his lawn. The part regarding Disney needing "courage" is particularly laughable. As if this forum isn't enough evidence of courage on their part in caring about social progress in their film depictions; seems like a day doesn't go by without complaining about strong female characters or rants with insults like SJWs all over the place. Even if it does happen--and that's still a big if, imo--nobody is forcing a company like Disney to do anything. If Floyd doesn't like what Disney chooses to do with their film library, that's his problem.

I think Floyd was almost right on the money. But white people never pretended to be another race in the vultures or Soggy Bottom Boys. But he's right that plenty of mistakes were made in the past, and they should stay in the movies as the mistakes they are.

So far I’m not that impressed with the number of nostalgia content this streaming service will host especially regarding old TV series like the ones from the Disney Afternoon but I guess there might be huge surprises and further details about what will be uploaded when they’ll do additional announcements at the first day of the upcoming D23 Expo.

According to Walt Disney Television Animation News, Home Alone, Cheaper By The Dozen, Night At The Museum and Diary Of A Wimpy Kid will be re-imagined for Disney + as TV series.

This is getting more ridiculous by the minute. So if all the other Hollywood studios adopt Disney's strategy we will only be left with the huge 'blockbuster' films released in cinemas. And the only way to view anything else will be to have a subscription for at least three other streaming services (e.g. Netflix, Disney+, Hulu), because obviously one subscription will not do if you want some variety.

I think I prefer watching movies the way I did when I was a kid - on craptacular quality pirated VHS cassettes. At least back then I could still watch the movies I wanted to. :evil:

I think Disney is considerably overestimating the success of their new streaming platform and of streaming in general. Some people will still want to have a home cinema and will go on using Blu-rays and other supports to enjoy it in the best conditions.

I think this is why Disney intends to continue to support physical media.

they're not over estimating anything, it'll be a huge hit. And its smart to partner with hulu with that bundle to help transition people to it. This isn't just about Disney movies, its their delivery platform for their movies, all the movies under their umbrella in general, and tons of original content as well. For the average joe its looking to have more appealing content than probably even netflix.
