Each month Disney adds new films from both Disney and 20th Century Studios (formerly Fox) libraries.

+44 20th Century Studios films added

-11 of the films added this year already removed (When Aquamarine leaves)

+33 net gain from this year’s adds. (After Aquamarine goes)

We can also subtract the titles that weren’t added this year, but got removed this year –

  1. Miracle on 34th Street (1947) was removed for HBO
  2. Dr Dolittle (1998) was removed for HBO
  3. Dr Dolittle 2 (2001) was removed for HBO
  4. Millions (2004) was removed for HBO
  5. Big (1988) was removed for Starz
  6. Far From Home (1995) was removed for Starz
  7. Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013) was removed for HBO
  8. Bend it Like Beckham (2002) was removed for HBO
  9. Eddie the Eagle (2013) was removed for unknown.

+24 gain in 2021 when these numbers are included

14 films returned from previous removals

Our Take:

This is horrendous management of the 20th Century library. Half the films they add should not be added. Disney continues to promote titles for their summer, fall, or winter campaigns and quickly remove them without fanfare.

  22. Tomorrowland (2015) – REMOVED
  23. Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

  26. Black Widow (2021)
  27. Cruella (2021)
  28. Jungle Cruise (2021) (Via Premier Access)
  29. Under Wraps (2021)

+29 Disney films added

-1 of the films added this year already removed

+28 net gain

We can also subtract the titles that weren’t added this year, but got removed this year –

  1. The Other Me (2000) was removed for contractual issues
  2. Tron Legacy (2010) was removed for unknown reasons
  3. The BFG (2016) was removed for Netflix

+25 net in 2021 when these numbers are included…

1 film returned from previous removal

Our Take:

Tomorrowland NEVER should have been added September 3rd. After promoting it since launch (23 months) they pulled it after less than 1 month of availability. VERY misleading and harmful to customer trust.
