    Apparently this scene from the end credits has been censored from current video and streaming due to sexual misconduct per NY Daily News and other news outlets.

    This, IMO, is one of the major pitfalls of streaming. Content can be altered at ANY time, whether you like it or not.

    And there, in a nutshell, is the argument for physical media.

    I don't see anything out of line there, looks OK to me. The media is reading too much into things like this.

    Unfortunately, that's the world we live in now.

    Agreed. They're trying to put a #MeToo spin on this, which begs the following questions:
    1. Is the behaviour of the character acceptable? No.
    2. Is the behaviour of the character portrayed in a positive light? No, because by this time in the narrative, the character is established as a villain, and so such behaviour is completely in line with what we would expect of such a character.
    3. Is this behaviour portrayed in a way that encourages imitation? Debatable.
    4. Is the behaviour portrayed in a way that encourages discussion after viewing the film? Yes; and
    5. Given that the scene is an outtake or blooper played at the end of the movie, what is the likelihood that it will be skipped, either on physical media or streaming? High.
    So much ado about nothing.

    Yeah, let's censor everything because humor is simply not allowed anymore. Get rid of it all.

    What bugged me the most about that bit was how the box suddenly got taller for the Barbies to fit. It's shorter the rest of the time.

    I first thought that this is a thread title I never expected to see. Then I thought, no wait, this is Disney.

    No animated film of theirs is safe now, the only film that might not get edited for future re-releases would be original The Jungle Book and Robin Hood, but I'm sure if someone looked hard enough they could find something wrong with those two films as well.

    They will discover that pretty much anything from the 20th century is politically incorrect. They will keep chipping away at these movies until nothing is left.

    I thought they altered it on the 4K disc too? If so, you can keep your previously released discs with that scene intact until they fail, but it looks like they're altering more than just streams. IMO, it's not a simple disc versus streaming issue as they're editing both home video formats.

    This is why I insist on physical discs for all my favourite movies.

    Is the blu ray that comes with the 4K UHD affected?

    These are now the individuals that hold 20th Century Fox films. How much more censorship may be on the way?

    I don't agree with the change, but I imagine the fact that it was also directed by John Lasseter probably was another consideration/trigger to make the change. Once Lasseter was revealed to be a creep, I'd imagine everything he touched is being looked at in a new light.

    Dear Sir

    I wish to strongly object to Mr. Perregaux reply being censored.
    Censoring in general I feel has gotten way out of hands these days.
    Just the other day I was in the middle of <div class="fr-spoiler">The rest of this letter has
    been censored due to the col. addressing the subject of censorship.
    The col. should have know better of addressing such an issue as this one.
    He has been severely reprimanded by having this body drawn and quartered
    and his brain lobotomized to further insure that this does not happen again</div>

    Yours sincerely

    Col. Houndsworth-Johnson-Smith-Jones (Mrs.)

    Damn. I didn't know that. My copy is still sealed. Now I'm debating returning it and just keeping the old BD. This is my favorite Toy Story film.

    Alterations/censorship of original theatrical releases is an appalling practice, and I absolutely won’t support this garbage.
