“Dr. Dolittle” has been removed from Disney+ in the United States.
The removal was a surprise since Disney+ does not announce which titles will leave every month like other streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu etc.
The film’s removal was due to pre-existing contracts established prior to Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox.
“Dr. Dolittle” will be available on Starz for a limited period of time and will eventually return to Disney+. The movie remains available on Disney+ internationally.
The film stars Eddie Murphy, as a successful physician and devoted family man, John Dolittle, who seems to have the world by the tail, until a long suppressed talent he possessed as a child, the ability to communicate with animals is suddenly reawakened with a vengeance! Now, every creature within squawking distance wants the good doctor’s advice, unleashing an outrageous chain of events that turns his world upside down!
