Disney Plus Digitally Removed the Butts From This Tom Hanks Classic

Disney+ is aimed at family-friendly audiences so the streaming service is censoring and editing content that falls outside of those parameters (sometimes in… creative ways), even if the film was originally distributed by a Disney label and with a “PG” rating.

Case in point, Tom Hanks’ mermaid romantic comedy Splash, which was released in 1984 by Disney’s Touchstone Pictures — and featured shots of actress Daryl Hannah’s naked bottom in her role as the mermaid Madison. Despite featuring brief nudity and some strong language, Splash still only received a “PG” rating at the time. (Casual nudity was pretty widespread in ’80s movies.)

It’s been 36 years since Splash was released, but Disney+ is here to finally cover up Hannah’s heinie.

As pointed out by Twitter user Allison Pregler (via AV Club), the version of Splash available on Disney+ has digitally altered the offending region:

splash-hannahAs you can tell from the gif above, Hannah’s hair has been either digitally augmented to cover her rear end or maybe Disney digitally added a bikini bottom. It’s tough to tell. Suffice to say that is not how she appeared in the original film.

IGN has reached out to Disney+ for comment on this alteration but had not heard back as of time of publish.

The now-defunct Touchstone was Disney’s label for more mature-themed films. Splash was Touchstone’s first release and was a huge hit for the time, earning $ 68 million domestically.

Other notable Touchstone releases included Down and Out in Beverly Hills, The Color of Money, Adventures in Babysitting, Three Men and a Baby, Good Morning, Vietnam, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Dick Tracy, Pretty Woman, The Rocketeer, Sister Act, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Ed Wood, Con Air, Face/Off, Rushmore, Unbreakable, Bruce Almighty, and Lincoln to name a few.

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=disney-plus-spotlight-april-2020&captions=true”][poilib element=”accentDivider”]

Splash isn’t the first older Disney release to have its content addressed by Disney+. The streaming service previously added “outdated cultural depictions” warnings to several of their classic films, including Dumbo, The Aristocats, Jungle Book, and Lady and the Tramp.
