Which Disney Movie Moments Did You Not Realise Were Problematic Until You Got Older?


If you're anything like me, chances are you spent your entire childhood watching Disney movies.

But times have changed and rewatching Disney movies as an adult can be, well, enlightening to say the very least.

Take Dumbo for example. The main crow character, Jim Crow, actually shares a name with racial segregation laws that were being enforced when the movie was released.

Or what about The Little Mermaid when Ariel gives up her voice to be with a man she doesn't even know. Slightly problematic, right?

And let's not forget the exaggerated stereotyping of Native Americans shown in Peter Pan, especially during "What Makes The Red Man Red?".
