Disney+ Removes Hundreds of Movies
Disney+ Removes Hundreds of Movies, Plans Major Change
The Walt Disney Company has gone through a massive wave of changes over the last few years, but one thing that has been barely noticed is that the company’s Disney+ service has removed hundreds of titles from its lineup. The selection for Disney+ subscribers just became much less.
Disney+ is the dedicated streaming home for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, as well as the new general entertainment content brand in select International markets, Star. As part of Disney’s Media & Entertainment Distribution segment, the streaming platform is available on most internet-connected devices and offers commercial-free programming with a variety of original feature-length films, documentaries, live-action and animated series, and short-form content.
most of the removals stem from the complicated licensing deals surrounding these films, a consequence of Disney’s many acquisitions over the past few years — especially Fox’s extensive library.
Movies like Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man franchise and Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man franchise were made by Sony Pictures and Disney only has a limited licensing agreement to have these on its streaming platform. The exact nature of the agreement hasn’t been revealed.
