A content advisory notice for racism in classic Disney films, in place since last year, has been updated with a strengthened message.

Axar.az informs that, when played on the Disney+ streaming service, films such as Dumbo, Peter Pan and Jungle Book now flash up with a warning about stereotypes.

"This programme includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures," the warning says.

"These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now."

The message adds that rather than remove the content, "we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together".

Other films to carry the warning are The Aristocats, which shows a cat in "yellow-face" playing the piano with chopsticks, and Peter Pan, where Native Americans are referred to by the racist slur "redskins".
