Disney's "long-lost" film "Song Of The South" might be granted a DVD release after all, according to ign.com

The film's been out of the public eye since its last cinema outing in 1986. The reason? It's an old film (1946) and the black characters are seen happily working in plantation fields and spending all their spare time singing gospel songs.

That said, it also shows black and white children playing together in 20 years before the Voting Rights Act gave blacks the right to vote in the Southern states.

So, should it get a release? Would the inevitable audience of children have a sophisticated enough understanding of the context of the film? Who am I asking?
