You might be wondering why ‘Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs’ isn’t on Disney+, and when it’ll be available on the streaming service. Read on for everything we know!
Is ‘Ice Age 3: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs’ On Disney Plus?
’Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs’ isn’t available to stream on Disney+ in the United States as it was pulled from the service back in September 2022. The movie does remain available on Disney+ in all other countries.
Why Isn’t ‘Ice Age 3: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs’ on Disney Plus?
In simple terms, Ice Age 3: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs is not currently available on Disney+ due to pre-existing agreements with other streaming services.
Disney has established partnerships with several platforms, including Netflix, HBO, and Starz, to distribute their content. Prior to the launch of Disney+ in 2019, the company did not have a dedicated streaming platform for their films. As a result, they relied on these partnerships to distribute their movies to audiences.
Even though Disney doesn’t need to license out their content anymore thanks to Disney+, these agreements remain in place until they expire or are bought out.
While Disney has purchased the rights to some films, such as Marvel movies, they have not done so for others, such as Ice Age 3.
Therefore, the movie is expected to return to Disney+ once the contractual agreements made before The Walt Disney Company’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox come to an end.
When Will ‘Ice Age 3: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs’ On Disney Plus?
Officially, Disney hasn’t announced when Ice Age 3: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs will be streaming again on Disney+ in the United States. Disney doesn’t typically announce when a specific title will be coming or returning to Disney+ more than a few weeks in advance.
We expect to see Ice Age 3: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs return to Disney+ towards the end of 2023 at the earliest, with 2024 being a possibility.
Where To Watch ‘Ice Age 3: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs’
