As of April 23, 20th Century Studios‘ “The Sound Of Music” has been removed from Disney+ in all countries across the globe.
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.
Titles removed from Disney+ aren’t uncommon due to pre-existing contracts created before Disney+, but that doesn’t appear to be the case here as these contracts are per country, not globally.
Titles have been removed by Disney in the past either for technical reasons or to make updates to the films. Such updates could include adding a warning, upgrading to a higher-quality version, or removing content they no longer wish to include. We’ve also seen older movies removed that aren’t particularly popular, likely to save on paying residuals, but “The Sound Of Music” probably doesn’t fall into that category.
Unfortunately, we don’t know the exact reason why Disney removed this movie.
It’s unknown if and when “The Sound Of Music” will return to Disney+, but we’ll let you know when we hear further news.
A tuneful, heartwarming story, it is based on the real life story of the Von Trapp Family singers, one of the world’s best-known concert groups in the era immediately preceding World War II. Julie Andrews plays the role of Maria, the tomboyish postulant at an Austrian abbey who becomes a governess in the home of a widowed naval captain with seven children, and brings a new love of life and music into the home.
