The warning appears at the end of descriptions on select Disney movies like the original Dumbo and Peter Pan. The same advisory is missing from other movies that have faced similar criticism, however, like Aladdin.

This Disney Plus Hulu bundle has one huge oversight

Disney+ launched yesterday, and it arrived offering a pretty tempting bundle with some of Disney's other services. Though you can buy a subscription to Disney+ on its own for $6.99 per month, you can also get it bundled with Hulu and ESPN+ for $12.99 per month, a price that challenges Netflix's standard subscription tier. If you don't have a subscription to Hulu already, then the bundle with Disney+ makes for a pretty attractive deal, but there's one thing you should know before you sign up.

Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King Review – You Died

I owned a fair number of games for the Sega Genesis when I was a kid, but two that will forever stick out are The Lion King and Aladdin. Though I played both games for hours on end, I’ve only ever managed to actually beat just one of them: Aladdin.

Despite the amount of time I sunk into that game, I never managed to beat it legitimately.
