You’ve likely seen classics like “Dumbo,” “Beauty and the Beast,” the “Jungle Book,” and “Aladdin.” But have you seen the more current Disney remakes?

Myles McNutt is a media critic and assistant professor of Communication & Theatre Arts at Old Dominion University.
Kim Trent is a member of the Wayne State University Board of Governors who recently wrote an op-ed for the Detroit Free Press about Disney’s decision to cast a young black woman in the role of Ariel in the remake of The Little Mermaid.
