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 ‘Voices Rising: The Music of Wakanda Forever’ 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 Marvel’s ’MPower’.
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 Marvel’s ‘Voices Rising: The Music of Wakanda Forever’ 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.
The three-episode series showcases how this extraordinary team pushed the boundaries of what a Hollywood score and soundtrack can be, creating an immersive, moving experience in the process. Voices in the series include: Göransson, Coogler, Fireboy DML, Bloody Civilian, Busiswa, Foudeqush, Vivir Quintana, Mare Advertencia, Jorja Smith, Burna Boy, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever stars Letitia Wright and Tenoch Huerta.
