LOS ANGELES (APRIL 15, 2020) – The Parents Television Council commended Disney+ for keeping its promise to be a family friendly streaming service by removing nudity from the film Splash and urged the company to continue its commitment as it adds content to the platform.
“Disney+ has a distinctive advantage over other streaming services in that its business model was designed to be family friendly. We are grateful to Disney+ for wisely ensuring that nudity in the original film, Splash, was edited. Making those edits does not make the film unrecognizable or unwatchable. Instead, the edits serve to ensure that children who may watch the film aren’t confronted by nudity, and ultimately this makes Disney+ a trustworthy streamer for families,” said PTC President Tim Winter.
“As Disney+ continues to add new content, we want to encourage the company to keep its commitment to families to provide a safe, family friendly environment – something that is even more crucial as children are spending more time with digital media during quarantine. While the company has promised not to include R-rated content, we ask Disney to go a step further to protect children by adding parental controls and content filtering options. These two steps would make Disney+ even better for families.”
