IGN: What's Left #3: It's time to polish off one of Disney's most controversial titles and bring it to Blu-ray.
Honestly if this film by some miracle does see a re-release it won't be a "major" one and it will more than likely be edited to the max to take out almost all the racist undertones that are completely obvious. Will it wreck the movie? probably, but do you honestly expect Disney to release that? They have worked so hard to get where they are at, and any and all negative things that go towards them are immediately handled as fast as they can. So why would Disney bring the criticism to themselves? I mean look at Lion King....they edited out the star sequence just because a few teenagers spelled sex in the stars....And I will bet money Dumbo will see some heavy editing too. My money? You will see this movie get "re-made" before you ever see it get re-released.
I'm so sick of political correctness. The movie isn't even about oppression towards Blacks. It's about an old Black guy telling stories.
And no, I don't care if I use "Black" instead of "African-American". I'm not going to spell that out every time. I don't ask to be called Caucasian every time....
