The beginning of the month will often see Disney remove certain titles from Disney+ due to existing contracts. April 2021 will continue that trend as multiple titles have been removed from Disney+ in the United States.
The removals came as a bit of a surprise since Disney+ does not announce which titles will be leaving every month like other streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu.
Tron: Legacy (2010) has been removed from Disney+ in the United States.
So far, we have not found Tron: Legacy on any other streaming service but it’s likely to appear on HBO Max at some point..

With fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), Kevin and Sam seek to escape from a universe that, while magnificent, is far more advanced and dangerous than Kevin had ever imagined.

“Ramona And Beezus” was recently just added to Disney+ on January 29, 2021. The movie remains available in other regions.
The adventures of young Ramona Quimby (Joey King) and her big sister Beezus (Selena Gomez) come to life in this all new film based on the best-selling books (over 30 million and counting) by Beverly Cleary. Ramonas vivid imagination, boundless energy, and accident-prone antics keep everyone she meets on their toes. But her irrepressible sense of fun, adventure and mischief come in handy when she puts her mind to helping save her family’s home.
“The Wolverine”, a 20th Century Studios movie from 2013 has been removed from Disney+ in the United States. This is the third time that the movie has been removed from Disney+. The film is still available on Disney+ in other countries.
Based on the celebrated comic book, this epic action adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces unexpected and deadly foes in a life or death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
“The Wolverine” stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Tao Okamoto. It was directed by James Mangold and written by Christopher McQuarrie, Mark Bomback, and Scott Frank.
Disney Family Singalong Volume 1
The program, which is hosted by Ryan Seacrest, featured musical performances of songs from select Disney films, performed by musicians from their respective homes, while viewers sing along by following Mickey, the bouncing ball (which is a gold version of the bouncing ball that was used in Disney’s Sing Along Songs). It also featured a reunion performance from the cast of the 2006 Disney Channel original film, High School Musical. The special also included public service announcements raising awareness for the efforts of Feeding America during the COVID-19 pandemic.
During World War II, the Civil Aeronautics Authority selects 13 black cadets to become part of an experimental program at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. The program aims at training “colored personnel” to become fighter pilots for the Army. However, discrimination, lack of institutional support and the racist belief that these men lacked the intelligence and aptitude for the job dog their every step. Despite this, the Tuskegee Airmen, as they become known, more than prove their worth.
Disney hasn’t announced when any of the above titles will be returning to Disney+. The movies have been removed due to pre-existing contracts created before Disney+ or technical issues. Once those deals have expired, we can expect these movies to return to Disney+ pretty quickly.
