Disney+ Uses 'Digital Fur Technology' To Hide Daryl Hannah's Bum In Splash
In a bid to keep things as PG as possible over at the Disney+ HQ, someone's been censoring all the rude scenes - like Daryl Hannah's backside in Splash, for instance. However, fans weren't appreciative of the edit, which you can see in all it's bum-less glory below:
Trying to keep things family friendly, the recently-launched streaming service has opted to hide Daryl's derriere - but they've replaced it with something that looks more like a fur rug and tried to disguise the results as hair.
Pointing out the strange decision, one Twitter user wrote: "Disney+ didn't want butts on their platform so they edited Splash with digital fur technology".
In response, one person wrote: "THEY GAVE HER A FURRY BATH MAT ON HER BUTT WHAT THE HELL," while another added: "It's like they tried to make her hair longer and thicker, but gave her a giant shag carpet for a butt instead."
A third commented: "For 35 years, young audiences have seen the butt and breasts of Daryl Hannah in Splash without it disturbing them and suddenly Disney + considers it shocking for them?"
Why does Simpsons remained unedited when everything else on D+ is closely monitored?
Like they edited out Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash but not Bart's penis in Simpsons movie?

LADbible has contacted Disney+ for comment.
Another movie that was slated recently for its CGI was Cats - so much so that a new version was reported to be on the way with 'some improved visual effects'.
Insiders told The Hollywood Reporter that it was done at director Tom Hooper's request, after the film was ripped to shreds by critics.
A Twitter exchange revealed that a note was sent to theatres playing the film which claimed to read: "DCDC and Deluxe-Technicolor will be sending updated FTR-20 SMPTE DCPs of Cats which will include some improved visual effects. The runtime is unchanged."
