Disney has quietly removed some content from Disney+ in January. No reason has been given for the removal or if they’ll be returning to Disney+ in the future. At the moment, it appears these titles have only been removed from Disney+ in the U.S.
- Home Alone
- Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
- The Sandlot
- Dr. Dolittle
- The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
- Strange Magic
- The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration
- Star Wars: The Last Jedi Score Version
- The Finest Hour
In addition, White Wilderness, Mickey Three Musketeers, Garfield 2 and Shaggy Dog ’06 were removed from Disney+ in December.
It’s not uncommon for streaming services to remove content from time to time, especially if they don’t own the content. This shouldn’t be the case for Disney but it’s possible existing licencing deals are coming into play here. The major of the removed content is 20th 20th Century Fox titles.
We’ve reached out to Disney+ for further comment.
