Here's Why People Are Calling For Disney To Rebrand "Splash Mountain"


Several petitions are going around calling for Disney to rebrand "Splash Mountain" because it was based on the movie Song of the South...a movie that Disney hasn't re-released since the 80s because it contains a ton of racist elements

Here's the plot:

Song of the South was a 1946 film that blended live-action and animation. The film takes place on a plantation, where presumed former slave Uncle Remus takes in visiting white boy Johnny and tells him the three Black folk tales of "Br'er Rabbit Earns a Dollar a Minute," "Br’er Rabbit and the Tar-Baby," and "Br’er Rabbit and His Laughing Place."

Yikes.

It wasn't included in Disney+ and Disney has said to not expect that movie to be released by Disney ever.
