“Mulan” is Disney’s first live-action remake to receive a PG-13 remake, receiving the rating due to “sequences of violence.” But ClearPlay wants to keep it clean.

What’s going on?

ClearPlay will launch a new filtering for Disney Plus films beginning Sept. 2.

ClearPlay — a movie filtering service that provides filtered content through Amazon Prime and Netflix — will make Disney Plus its third available service for filter.

  • “We are excited to give families additional options when they watch movies,” said CEO Matt Jarman in a statement to the Deseret News. “As always, viewers can continue to enjoy movies exactly how the directors and producers have envisioned, Clearplay just provides some additional options for families in the their own homes.”
  • “We do all we can to provide families with the best possible filtering options, and at the same time respect the copyright and distribution rights held by the studios and streaming services.”

ClearPlay works independently from studios and streaming services. Currently, the service uses a Chrome Browser extension to help filter content. The company has worked to keep families safe from harmful content and honor copyright holders.

Live-action remakes

Disney has released a number of live-action remakes for classic films like “The Lion King,” “Aladdin” and “Beauty and the Beast.” But “Mulan” is the first to not receive a G or PG rating.

The new film appears to be a “fantasy war epic” rather than the gushy and lighthearted animated film.

“Pirates of the Caribbean” was Disney’s first PG-13 film in 2003, according to Forbes.

“It’s important for parents to pay careful attention to these ratings and not do nothing, not fall into the trap of assuming that because it’s Disney, it’s automatically OK for your child to watch,” Melissa Henson, program director for the Parents Television Council, told the Deseret News. “If it’s PG-13, it’s PG-13 for a reason.”
