Violent Warning Added to Disney+ The Falcon and Winter Soldier

Last week, Disney released the first episode of the new Marvel Studios series “The Falcon And The Winter Soldier” onto Disney+ and it has quickly become the most popular premiere since Disney+ launched.


The series features The Winter Soldier and Falcon dealing with the events after “Avengers: Endgame”, where Falcon is handed the Captain America shield by an elderly Steve Rogers.

The first episode is packed with plenty of action and is rated 12+, however, just ahead of the release of the second episode of the show on Friday, Disney has updated the description with a new warning stating:

Though it is fictional and set in the comic-book world, the series contains violent scenes that may be viewed as triggering or unsettling to some viewers, particularly in light of recent real-world tragic events.

Last year, Disney added “outdated cultural depictions” warnings to a wide selection of older shows and movies, but this is the first time a violent warning message has been added to a description within Disney+, but with the recent events in the United States involving violent attacks in Washington DC and this week’s mass shooting, Disney is just making sure people are aware of what is included in the show.

What do you think of Disney adding this warning to its content?

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
