Marvel’s “MPower” Saved From Disney+ Removal

Just a few days ago, it was announced that Disney will begin removing over 60 titles from Disney+ and Hulu starting next week.

Marvel’s ‘MPower’ was originally slated for removal from Disney+, but Deadline has recently reported that the documentary will stay on the streaming service following a reassessment by Disney of the content set to be taken down.

Disney has seen significant backlash and has started reversing some of the removals such as ‘Howard,’ Pixar’s ‘A Spark Story‘ and ’Voices Rising: The Music of Wakanda Forever’.

Deadline quotes a Disney representative as saying “The list of titles coming off of Hulu and Disney+ next week is still being finalized.” This suggests there may be more adjustments over the coming days regarding what stays and what goes on Disney+.

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

“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,” CFO Christine McCarthy said.

While this is positive news, especially considering ‘MPower’ was only just released a few months back, it might still be a good idea to watch this one sooner rather than later if you haven’t already. It’s possible that the title could still be removed in the future.

’MPower’ spotlight several of the MCU’s most inspirational women heroes. “Every hero has an epic origin story and so does this series,” said Executive Producer Justin W. Hochberg. “When I conceived ‘MPower,’ I did it out of love for my teen daughter so she would have more icons to look up to, voices to learn from and role models to help her impact the world. Today, that vision is now a reality thanks to Brie Larsen, Elizabeth Olsen, the women of Wakanda and Zoë Saldaña, whose leadership was ‘Mpowering.’
