lindsay Ellis has great videos essays on why Disney fails at putting feminism in their remakes (putting in new elements that doesn't affect the plot at all, the whole 'mother died of plague element' doesn't lead to anything etc) and how Disney also glosses over other awful elements of their past film (ie removing the racist crows from dumbo completely rather than tackling why its wrong) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xU1ffHa47YY https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vpUx9DnQUkA&t=18s
