(CNN) – Disney announced that it is rethinking a classic theme park after years of criticism from fans.
However, Jungle Cruise did not age gracefully like some of the other attractions. Although the trip was inspired by documentaries about nature, one of the sights along the river road is the “natives” scene, depicting them as savages, primitive, and dangerous.
In a press release, Disney confirmed the ride’s upcoming fix. Among the changes will be a new animated captain character.
“As imaginers, it is our responsibility to ensure that the experiences we create and the stories we share reflect the voices and perspectives of the world around us,” Carmen Smith, executive director of development and inclusion strategies at Walt Disney Imagineering, said in a statement.
“Jungle Cruise” starring Emily Blunt, Jesse Plemons and The Rock (as the captain of the ship) is due to be released later in 2021. However, Disney has not confirmed whether there will be any overlap between the film and the ride.
Jungle Cruise is one of the many Disney attractions that have been called out in the last few years for a foul photo shoot.
