Here’s Where You Can Stream Disney’s ‘Song of the South’

Walt Disney’s Song of the South is arguably the most controversy-ridden movie in the eyes of the general population. It has been labeled as an unacceptable work of racism, among other things, and its legacy has been tainted for so long that Walt Disney Studios never released it on VHS, let alone DVD, in the United States. While attempts to recycle the animated characters in the Parks lasted for a while thanks to the popularity of Splash Mountain and the Disney anthem “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah,” efforts appear to be underway to completely remove the franchise from the minds of Disney fans everywhere.

But, if any of our readers are simply curious to watch what could be the last un-watched Disney films on their list, we at Disney Fanatic just discovered that there is at least one legitimate streaming service that offers it.

ReDiscover Television, a legal streaming service, has "Song of the South" available to watch. One of the reasons why Splash Mountain shouldn’t be rethemed. from disneyparks

It is called ReDiscover Television, and it is a “family-friendly” streaming that appears to be building itself off of faith-based programming like The Chosen and all of the classic children’s and family programming that has assumably entered the public domain. As they say on their platform, the only Disney material that is available is, admittedly, “the early works … that are no longer copyrighted.” So, at the moment, the only pieces of available Disney content outside of Song of the South are the older, more obscure cartoons, including some of Disney’s WW2 propaganda films starring Donald Duck.

As Disney moves into its next centennial and it continues to lose the ability to protect its classic content from entering the public domain, it will be interesting to watch how other streaming services like ReDiscover Television take advantage of the possible additions to their portfolios.

Also, every Disney Fanatic who decides to watch Song of the South will be helping a good cause at the same time.

ReDiscover Television states,

“Every time you view an ad, or subscribe to our channel for premium content, you are helping impoverished children on the border through Mission Juarez Mexico; a Non-Profit Organization who delivers toys, food, clothing and education throughout the year. For more information on MJM, go to www.missionjuearezmx.com”

As for Song of the South, IMDB describes it as the following, “The kindly story-teller Uncle Remus tells a young boy stories about trickster Br’er Rabbit, who outwits Br’er Fox and slow-witted Br’er Bear.”

Walt Disney Imagineering will replace Splash Mountain with the Princess and the Frog-themed attraction, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, and open to the public in late 2024.
