Chatting on the Ellen Show, the star revealed that she was concerned about some of the outdated messages the films have, telling Ellen DeGeneres: “Cinderella: banned. Because she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don’t! Rescue yourself, obviously.” She admitted that The Little Mermaid was also banned, adding: “This is the one that I’m quite annoyed about because I really like the film …I mean, the songs are great, but do not give your voice up for a man, hello! I love The Little Mermaid, so that’s a tricky one, but I’m keeping to it.”

However, little Edie is still allowed to watch more recent Disney flicks, as the Pirates of the Caribbean star explained: “Finding Dory is a big favourite in our house. Frozen is huge; Moana is totally fine. There are some great ones.” People have had a mixed reaction to Keira’s interview, with one person writing: “I watched all the Disney films when I was younger and it hasn’t made me want to wait around for a man to save me! I think these celebs have the issues not their poor children,” while another added: “You could let her watch them all and make her own decisions. I know she’s young, but still.”
