In this snowflake day and age, I would have been surprised if they did put it out. Doesn't bother me either way. Like I said before, Song of the South is basically good for the one song, and Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and Brer Bear.

Then why hasn't it been available for decades? Has nothing to do with this day and age or movie quality. Racists will blame so-called snowflakes for not being able to watch a racist movie every day.

I don't think it's any surprise that Song of the South won't be on Disney + ... that movie's never going to get released by Disney in any format again. I was a little surprised to hear that they're editing the original Dumbo though.

Yet Birth of a Nation (the racist one) has always been available. Interesting point, but the movie was a Disney creation, albeit a racist one. They'll protect their brand as they always have. The article even states why it's not being released on streaming, - "Disney CEO Bob Iger spoke about the decision during the company's 2011 annual meeting, saying that, after a rewatch of the film, he felt parts of it "wouldn't necessarily sit right or feel right to a number of people today" and that "it wouldn't be in the best interest of our shareholders to bring it back, even though there would be some financial gain." Boardwalk Times first reported the movie's absence." And racists don't tend to lean on Disney very much to demand the movie be released.
