From Peter Pan to The Aristocats, much of Disney’s back catalogue features potentially offensive stereotypes?

Most would agree that consent – and certainly the involvement of Donald Trump – should play a major role in such a discussion, but few of us would have spotted the scene in which Prince Charming wakes up the title character with a smooch in 1937’s Disney classic Snow White as a problematic moment, even in 2021.

In a review of Disneyland Anaheim’s recently revamped Snow White ride, which features a fresh denouement based on the “true love’s kiss” scene, they described the kiss as one “he gives to her without her consent, while she’s asleep, which cannot possibly be true love if only one person knows it’s happening,” adding: “Haven’t we already agreed that consent in early Disney movies is a major issue.

But it’s an example of the difficulties Disney faces when trying to present a modern image to the world without destroying its entire back catalogue.

Or Disney could just remake everything, which seems to be happening behind the scenes in any case?
