What’s New on Disney+ in April 2023!

Although Disney’s Peter Pan from 1953 is a truly magical animated film, its racial politics have long been criticized for being… not great. Allow me to refresh your memory by providing a link to the video of “What Makes the Red Man Red,” a song performed by Native American-themed characters with feathers in their hair and skin the color of a boiled dog. You probably don’t even need to look at it.

As the next in line for a modern live-action remake by Disney (after Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, etc.), it stands to reason that the studio will make an effort to make the 77-minute film more representative of modern audiences by reducing racism and expanding the cast.

Understandably, everyone responded well to these changes when the teaser for the Disney+ original film, now dubbed Peter Pan & Wendy, emerged a few weeks ago.

Instead, conservative media seized on the movie as the newest trivial battleground in the never-ending culture war, in which everything that doesn’t promote “values” from the 1950s is deemed “woke” and prompts a Tucker Carlson tirade.

The picture looks beautiful, and director David Lowry (who also directed the stunning fantasy The Green Knight a few years ago) seems to be on track to make enough interesting adjustments in the formula that the movie might serve a purpose (which is more than I can say for…other Disney remakes of late). There seems to be a subtle anti-family values movement at work here, with some of the Lost Boys having transitioned into girls.

The Crossover, based on Kwame Alexander’s acclaimed young adult novel, and a new Spanish-language series based on Journey to the Center of the Earth are both available this month on streaming services, in case you haven’t already canceled your membership in a fit of moral superiority (both drop April 5). Everything else that will be available on Disney+ this month is listed below.
