The French Connection is a 1971 Crime Drama movie that was directed by William Friedkin and was released by 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studios). Following Fox's completed acquisition & takeover by Disney in 2019, Disney now own the rights to this movie. A few years later Disney quietly censored this movie to make it a little more politically correct.


International Censorship[]

  • The conversation scene where Popeye Doyle (Gene Hackman) used the "n" word racial slur was completely removed.

Where to find it uncensored?[]

Physical media (VHS, DVD, Blu-ray, etc.) and older streaming prints are completely uncensored, and Disney+ in certain international territories has it uncensored for now.
