Titles No Longer Leaving:

Disney has seen significant backlash and has started reversing some of the removals such as:

Why is Disney Removing Movies & Shows?

The removals comes with a content impairment charge of $1.5 billion to $1.8 billion, which was announced during the recent Disney earnings call on May 10.

An impairment charge refers to the accounting method used when an asset’s current market value has fallen below its original cost or value, indicating that it has lost some of its initial worth. In other words, Disney is choosing to write off this content.

CFO Christine McCarthy said.

“We are in the process of reviewing the content on our DTC services to align with the strategic changes in our approach to content curation.”

By removing certain titles, Disney stands to save money, as they will no longer be obligated to pay ongoing residual payments and licensing fees. In addition, Disney may also consider removing some content to establish licensing agreements with other companies such as Netflix, HBO etc., thereby generating extra revenue.

Disney’s decision to remove content parallels a preceding action by Warner Bros. Discovery, headed by David Zaslav, which also pulled a selection of titles from HBO Max. This list included shows like Westworld, The Nevers, Generation, FBoy Island, Legendary, The Time Traveler’s Wife, The Gordita Chronicles, Raised by Wolves and more. This move was part of an attempt to cease financing library titles that were not meeting performance standards. The company subsequently granted Roku and Tubi the rights to many of these same shows through a number of licensing agreements, thereby further monetizing programming that had previously failed to achieve expected success.

The future trajectory of these movies and TV shows under Disney’s umbrella remains uncertain. They may eventually surface on other streaming platforms or become accessible for buying on digital platforms such as iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, among others.

  1. I believe Disney removed Better Nate tan ever due to Nate being gay! I don’t believe the reason given. I heard many people was watching the movie I watched the movie at least a once a day. I liked the story line, the singing, the actors, and it was a feel good movie. We need more movies like this one. Nothing was over the top. Please rethink it being taken off.

    • I disagree 100% about him being gay as the reason. If that was the case they’d take Strange World off with the son being gay. Just saying.
