What’s New on Disney+ in April 2023

Screenshot: Peter Pan & Wendy/Disney+ For years, it has actually been typically concurred upon that while it might be a really wonderful animated movie, the racial politics of Disney’s 1953 timeless Peter Pan are, uh, not terrific. If you have not seen it in a while, might I revitalize your memory with a link to the tune in which Native American-inspired characters with plumes in their hair and skin the color of a boiled hotdog sing, “What Makes the Red Man Red”? Really, you understand what, you most likely do not require to see it. It just follows that Disney’s modern live-action remake– the next in line after Beauty & the Beast, The Lion King, et al– would, to name a few modifications to make a 77-minute motion picture into a correct full-length hit, attempt to be a bit less racist and a bit more inclusive. Naturally, when the trailer for the Disney+ initial movie, now retitled Peter Pan & Wendy, dropped a couple of weeks back, everybody reacted to these modifications with understanding and interest. Hahahaha. No, in fact, conservative media got on the movie as the most recent irrelevant front in a limitless culture war, in which anything that does not forward 1950s-era “worths” gets identified “woke” and motivates a Tucker Carlson tirade. Never ever mind that the movie– from David Lowry, who made the stunning dream The Green Knight a couple of years back– looks extremely quite, and appears poised to present adequate modifications that it may in fact have a factor to exist (which is more than I can state for … other Disney remakes of late). A few of the Lost Boys are now ladies, something perilous anti-family worths program. If you’ve yet to cancel your membership in a fit of self-righteousness, this month’s streaming offerings likewise consist of The Crossover, a series adjustment of the much-lauded YA book by Kwame Alexander; and a brand-new Spanish-language series based upon Journey to the Center of the Earth (both drop April 5).
